|10th annual Melvin B. Bassi Memorial Golf Tournament Announced|
It will be held at the Nemacolin Country Club, Beallsville, with a 9 a.m. start (registration at 8 a.m.). Chairman J.J. Georgagis said that the committee has already met and is looking forward to another great turnout and beautiful weather for the 10th annual event. Event sponsor is Highway Appliance and Hole in One sponsor is cfsbank.
Activities included in the $125 golfer fee include continental breakfast, sandwich at the turn, and dinner. There will be chances to win $10,000 cash for a hole in one, a money wall that paid out $1,000 at last year’s outing, and a hockey stick putting contest. There are also several auxiliary prizes for alternate hole-in-one shots. Crystal trophies are awarded to the best team, and there are a total of six skill prizes given. “Melvin Bassi was not an avid golfer,” said Deb Keefer, Chamber Director, continuing, “However, he would love the comradery and community support for education displayed at this outing every year.”
Proceeds from the outing benefit local students with scholarships to California University and Douglas Education Center, in addition to funding for a Chamber member to attend Leadership Washington County.
