Charity Event at Moorpark Country Club

On Thursday, May 17, Moorpark Country Club will be the site of the Phillips & King International annual charity golf tournament.

This year, Phillips and King has chosen the Cigar Family Charitable Foundation as the recipient of the proceeds. This foundation is working to improve the lives of families in the villages surrounding the town of Caribe in the Dominican Republic. They do this by helping to build much needed schools, health clinics, recreation facilities, a safe drinking water network, youth programs, adult training and much more. Last year, the tournament raised almost $19,000 and would love to make that same kind of contribution to this year's recipient.

The details

When: May 17th, 2007, 12:00 PM shotgun start.
Where: Moorpark Country Club (I'll post an update when I find out which two of the three nines they will use)
Update: The tournament will be played on the Ridgeline and Canyon Crest nines.
Women: White tees, Men: Blue tees
Entry fee: $225

The entry fee includes lunch, a full course dinner, a gift bag and lots of cigars.

Prize opportunities include a new BMW or Harley Davidson, airline tickets, a Caribbean cruise, rounds of golf, trophies and more, and are awarded for Hole-in-one, Long Drive (Male and Female), Closest to the Pin (Male and Female), putting contest, 1st and 2nd place and a raffle. There will also be a live auction.

Since this event is only two weeks away, sign up soon using the registration form below (click on it to get a larger version) or by calling (805) 744-4188 or (800) 532-4427 x 188.

I know it can be difficult to get out to play at noon on a weekday, but I hope to see you there! (You can also just come for the dinner, auction and raffle for a $100 contribution.)

Hi Kristen:
What a great mix of practical golf tips, your views, and good deeds. My brother and partner, Ted (LongandWrong)has organized a charity outing for years. It is a great way to give something back using the game he loves. And it is a great way for beginners to get introduced to "corporate golf." Kudos! Tom
