Author: CB2 Press Release

BLUFFTON, SC, Aug. 9, 2019 – The Boys & Girls Club of Bluffton is holding is 15th Annual Par Fore Kids Bluffton Golf Classic on Mon., Sept. 9 at the May River Course at Palmetto Bluff. The tournament, one of the Clubs largest fundraising events, will begin at noon with a shamble format.

Each year the tournament draws 144 golfers that in addition to a day of play, receive lunch, dinner and a goody bag. The top three winning teams will also receive prizes.

Molly Hornbeak, director of the Boys & Girls Club of Bluffton, says she expects the tournament will raise about $65,000 through registration fees, sponsorships and a silent auction where players can bid on golf packages from local and national golf courses.

The revenue is a big part of the Boys & Girls Club of Bluffton’s $1.1 million annual budget. Hornbeak says it supports afterschool programs for about 300 kids every day. The Club also maintains a waiting list for children ready to enroll when space becomes available.

“We rely on the generosity of our local donors and supporters each year to make sure our Club has the funds for these young people to have a safe place in Bluffton,” says Hornbeak. “This golf tournament is a great, fun way to show support for the youth in our community. As Bluffton continues to grow we want to make sure we are growing as well to serve as many children as possible, and we just can’t do that without the help of our community.”

The entry fee for the tournament is $300 per player or $1,200 for a team of four if paid by the early bird date of Sept. 1. The price increases by $50 per player after Sept. 1. Sponsorship opportunities are also available.
