LIONS CLUB GOLF TOURNAMENT HELPS BUY GLASSES
A day at the golf course can help buy a pair of eyeglasses for a local child or a vision screener for an elementary school. It might even provide a local senior with glaucoma surgery. The Cabot Lions Club is hosting their annual charity golf tournament on Monday, Sept. 9 at Rolling Hills Country Club. Entry fee is $400 per team in the four-person scramble, and proceeds go directly toward providing eye exams and purchasing eyeglasses for local school children and in-need adults.
Entry fee includes greens fees, cart, two mulligans, door prizes and a steak and potato dinner. Entry deadline is Sept. 2. Opportunities are also available for corporate and hole sponsorships as well as donations for door prizes.
