It is approaching rapidly, but it is not too late to enter Mount Mercy Academy’s fifth annual Golf Tournament! This year the tournament is being held at the Springville Country Club in Springville.
The event, which will take place on Monday, Aug. 20, is held to benefit the Mount Mercy Athletic Department. The $125 registration fee includes lunch, fees, cart, complimentary gift bags, cocktails and a steak dinner. Registration will begin at 10:30 a.m. followed by lunch at 11 a.m. and a noon shotgun start. Cocktails will start at 4:30 p.m. with dinner at 5:30 p.m. Non-golfers may attend the cocktail reception and dinner for $55.
Highlighting this year’s tournament will be the awarding of the second annual Hooper Award, named in honor of the late Kathleen A. Suchan Hooper, an alumna of the Class of 1966. Hooper was an avid golfer, a loyal alumna and a generous benefactor of Mount Mercy. The Hooper Award will be given to the top foursome. The winners’ names will be inscribed on a trophy, which will be displayed at Mount Mercy.
There is also a Hole in One Contest that is being sponsored by Towne Auto. A lucky golfer could win a 2018 Lincoln MKC for a year.
Reservations and sponsorship opportunities are still available. Information is available at www.mtmercy.org or by contacting Liz Redanz at 825-8796, ext. 306.
