"We are pleased to be hosting our golfers this year at Nemacolin Country Club," said J.J. Georgagis, Chairman. "We are looking for a full field of participants and are hoping for cooperation from Mother Nature," he added.
The featured Hole in One Prize will be a 2014 Jeep Cherokee sponsored by Rotolo Motors, in addition to valuable auxiliary prizes. Back by popular demand is the fantasy scratch off golf mini tournament.
Foursomes, sponsorships and door prizes ($25 value or more) are still being accepted by calling any member of the golf committee or the Chamber office at 724-483-3507. Everyone (regardless of membership) is invited to attend this very popular event; it has sold out in the past and, therefore, early registrations are encouraged. The cost per golfer is $125 and includes greens fees and cart, lunch, beverages, dinner, a golfer's goodie bag, and many other extras. The Chamber accepts VISA, Mastercard and Discover.
Proceeds from the Bassi Tournament fund Leadership Washington County scholarships, The Challenge Program in local high schools, and several other educational initiatives in the Mid-Mon Valley in memory of the late Attorney Melvin B. Bassi, outstanding community and business leader in the Mon Valley.
This year's Golf Committee is chaired by J.J. Georgagis, Keystone Bakery, and includes Milt Kubik, Denise Mornak, Mornak Excavation, Trish Brickner, PaCareerLink, Josie Pelzer, Rotolo Motors, Diann Donaldson, Reliance Business Solutions, and Jeffrey Mendola, Waddell and Reed.
