American Legion Golf Tourney Set For Sept. 17 At Wanderers Club

The Wellington American Legion Chris Reyka Memorial Post 390 will host its sixth annual Future Heroes Golf Tournament on Saturday, Sept. 17 at the Wanderers Club (1900 Aero Club Drive, Wellington).

The event will kick off with registration and a “Putting for the Dough” contest beginning at noon, followed by a 1 p.m. shotgun start. There will be numerous games and contests on the course, along with complimentary food and beverages supplied by local restaurants.

At the end of the tournament, participants will be treated to a delicious Wanderers Club dinner buffet, followed by an awards ceremony, a raffle with hundreds of prizes and a silent auction.

The event is sponsored by Hurricane Grill & Wings of Wellington and Schumacher Buick, which will be donating a brand-new 2017 car to a lucky hole-in-one winner.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Future Heroes Scholarship Fund and programs supporting local youth, patriotic, and veterans support groups. The entry fee is $110 per player, and there are still sponsorship opportunities and hole signs available to advertise local businesses.

The tournament is expected to sell out fast. For more information, contact Ed Portman at (561) 602-4409, John Isola at (561) 795-2721 or Mike Pancia at (561) 324-5403, or e-mail
