St. Mary’s Center, the Middletown agency that provides services to those with intellectual disabilities, will hold its 16th annual charity golf scramble tournament Aug. 6 at Wildwood Country Club, 5000 Bardstown Road.
The day’s activities will commence at 7 a.m. with breakfast, and the tournament will begin at 7:30 a.m. with a “shotgun” start. Lunch will be held at noon, and if there are players who prefer afternoon golf, they may attend the luncheon at noon and then begin golfing with a shotgun start for an afternoon session at 1:30 p.m.
The cost of the charity golf tournament is $100 per person and the price includes greens fees, a cart, range balls, breakfast, lunch, gifts and prizes. Individual entries are welcome.
The event will also feature a “Rock Drop,” that will be held at 1 p.m. on the Wildwood driving range. The event features numbered golf balls — the “rocks” — that are dropped from a helicopter. If the ball a participant has purchased goes into the golf hole and stays there, that participant will win $12,000.
If a ball does not drop into the hole, the closest “rock” to the hole will win $10,000. Chances are sold at $100 per “rock.”
Registration for both the golf scramble tournament and the Rock Drop is available on-line at www.saint
maryscenter.org, or by calling Ann Hurst, the center’s director of development, at 244-0082.
Participation in the tournament will help raise funds for the center, which provides adult day training, teen after school services and athletic activities to the 150 teens and adults served by St. Mary’s Center. According to a news release from St. Mary’s, the center works to “offer our participants tools to enhance their lives, such as continuing education, life skills training, health and wellness classes and community outings.
The center is located at 11700 S. Main St. in Middletown, Ky.
