Online Auction Co-Chairs


The Golf Tournament is scheduled for May 11th!!!

The Golf Tournament is scheduled for May 11th, BUT we don’t have a chairperson for this fun event!!!

The Chair would be responsible for soliciting sponsors, ordering signage if necessary (we have some already) , and gathering new logos (if we don’t already have them).

After that it’s just distributing registration forms.  Seascape Golf does the rest on the day of the tourney. They really take care of everything, (ok except for check in and prizes).  It’s a really fun day. I chaired it last year and I had a blast riding around on the golf cart.  If you’re interested, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Debra Wiesner at debrawiesner@yahoo.com, or feel free to call me if you want to talk about it further.

We need to have a chairperson in place within a week, otherwise we’ll have to cancel the event. We are however, still going to be looking for sponsorships for the Auction, Dinner and Dance.
