“Dawn to Dusk” Charity Golf Classic needs players

Share This Article

Registration for the "Dawn to Dusk" Charity Golf Classic continues this week leading up to the inaugural event on Friday, July 15th at Sunnidell Golf. Golfers are encouraged to support this fundraiser for the two co-presenting organizations: the Brockville and Area Community Foundation and the Brockville & Area Sports Dome Association. A $50.00 registration fee gets each participant as many holes as you can play in five hours, a bar-b-q lunch, a tax receipt (amount TBD), and a chance at some great prizes!

This unique event runs from 6:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. and features three different time slots for golfers to choose from: 6:00 - 11:00 a.m.; 11:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.; and 4:00 - 9:00 p.m. There are presently three golfers signed up for all 15 hours: Wolfgang Pohl; Bob Harper; and Percy Sargeant! The public is invited to come out and cheer on these three players  as they make their way from "Dawn to Dusk" at Sunnidell Golf. MPP Steve Clark will be joining Wolfgang Pohl for the first leg of the fifteen hour journey from 6:00 - 11:00 a.m. Co-Chair of the "Dawn to Dusk" event, David Dargie will bring Mr. Pohl "home" from 4:00 - 9:00 p.m.

Martin Noe, Co-Chair of the tournament remarked: "Since we do not have the large numbers that we expected for this first tournament, the Executive Course at Sunnidell Golf will be open for public play on July 15th. We will work our golfers into the course's rotation of play so that both the tournament and public players can enjoy a day on the links. We want to thank our major sponsor, the owners of Sunnidell Golf - Gord and Dawn MacDougall for donating their golf course to our participants on July 15th."

David Dargie, the other Co-Chair observed: "We are still hopeful that people will register for our tournament. either by phoning Sunnidell Golf or by visiting our web site: www.yourcommunityfoundation.ca to find one of the entry forms. The fact that we have three golfers willing to play the 15 hours of this tournament and raise funds through pledges is heartening."

Plans are still in place to have live music for both the participants and the general public. Please phone Sunnidell Golf on July 15th to determine which local artists will be performing at what times. The final awards and prize ceremony will take place at the Sunnidell Golf Clubhouse following the last round of the tournament at 9:15 p.m. The public is also invited to join the golfers, especially the three 15 hour "Masochists", at this after-party.

For more details, please contact David Dargie at 613.498.9970 or e-mail katie@evolutionconsultants.ca.
