Tee up for hurricane relief at Aspen Glen

After the double-whammy disasters of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, people all across the valley are looking for ways to help. Carbondale has adopted a town in Mississippi and is raising money for relief efforts there.

On Thursday, Oct. 4, Aspen Glen, McDonald’s and Budweiser and Orrison Distributing are teaming up to offer golfers a wonderful opportunity to support the Pearlington, Miss., Relief Project, with all proceeds going towards the American Red Cross or the Carbondale Pearlington Relief fund.

The four-person scramble tournament will begin with a shotgun start. Entrants can put together their own team or a team will be put together for them. The cost is $75 (minimum donation) and includes food, beer and prizes.

Sign up by calling Aspen Glen Golf Shop at 704-1988. It is suggested that teams sign up early to assure a tee time.

A silent auction will be included, along with the prizes. Interested donors are asked to call Nicole Cavarra at 704-1905.

Grab your clubs and form a team to swing for hurricane relief.
