The Cigar Club of the Palm Beaches will host a charity golf tournament on Saturday, March 7, at the Village Golf Club in Royal Palm Beach with proceeds benefiting the Wounded Veterans Relief Fund of Palm Beach County.
The entry fee is $125 per player. The event begins with a light breakfast at 7 a.m. with a tee-off at 8 a.m. The format is a four-person team scramble, making it possible for golfers of all skill levels to have a fun day while supporting an important charitable organization.
“You don’t have to be a member of the club to be part of this event,” said Bob Still, club president and tournament director. “We have raised more than $15,000 in the past few years supporting veterans’ causes, and we guarantee this will be a memorable day.”
In addition to golf, players will receive a swag bag with gifts, a light breakfast, complimentary beverages throughout their round of golf as well as one hour after play, lunch provided by Ruth’s Chris Steak House, and team and individual prizes. A silent auction is part of the festivities, and players can purchase mulligans to help improve their score. There will be a drawing for a large-screen SmartTV and a 50/50 cash drawing. TV drawing tickets can also be purchased at www.cigarclubgolf.com/tv for $5 each.
“Many service members leaving the military have a hard time transitioning into civilian life. Not only are they faced with challenges of their visible and unseen injuries, they are also overwhelmed with trying to navigate their way into the civilian workforce and can experience financial difficulties when trying to provide for themselves and their families,” WVRF Executive Director Michael Durkee explained. “The WVRF exists to provide emergency financial support to qualified disabled veterans. Saving lives and keeping families together is our mission.”
