LITTLE FALLS — The 10th annual Herkimer County Hunger Coalition Benefit Golf tournament will take place on Sept. 24 at the Little Falls Municipal Golf Course.
Tee times are at 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. and the entry fee is $70, including mulligans and skins. Lunch will be served at noon with pizza and wings to follow. There are two divisions, open and senior for ages 65 and older, and awards for the team with the lowest score along with the winner of the women’s group.
The format is four-person captain and crew. As this is a "skins tournament," the hunger coalition will sweeten the pot with $300. The rest of the largesse will come from skin and mulligan money.
Proceeds will go toward the purchase of winter coats for children in need from Benton Hall Academy. This year’s event is in honor of the men and women from Little Falls who served during World War II and their spouses. Their sacrifices in the battlefields and home front made the difference as far as winning that war and their post-war contributions guaranteed the quality of life area residents enjoy today, according to a news release.
Coordinating the tournament again will be City Treasurer David Petkovsek and Devin McDonald, while chief assistants will be Kelly Brown and Little Falls Clerk Kira Andrilla. Kegmaster is Billy Petkovsek. Lunch and post-tournament feed will be provided by Dan Pawluk and his staff.
