13th Annual Lookout For Each Other Golf Tournament held Sept. 12

All proceeds to benefit mountain bike trail expansion
KILLINGTON – Lookout Tavern owners Phil and Joy Black host a day of golf, fun, great food and community spirit during the 13th Annual Lookout for Each Other golf tournament on Monday, Sept. 12, at Killington Resort’s golf course.  All of the proceeds from this year’s event will benefit the Killington Mountain Bike Club and the Killington Trails Initiative.
The annual event has earned more than $150,000 since its inception and donated all proceeds to a variety of local needs including families who have lost a parent, cancer victims, area youth organizations, women’s clubs, and more.  Last year, the event raised over $14,000 to benefit Vermont Adaptive Ski and Sports, Rutland Meals on Wheels, and the Rutland Community Cupboard.
“Living and working in Vermont is about being a part of the community and that’s what is important to us,” said Phil Black, founder of the tournament. “Coming together to support local charities is a way for everyone to give back to their community and we’re glad that we’ve been able to raise and then donate these funds over the years. We try to reach out to a variety of causes and charities so that as many people and organizations can benefit.”
This year’s goal is to raise the remaining $20,000 needed to complete Phase 1 of the Killington Community Trail Initiative. The application by the Town of Killington to build a mountain bike trail system on U.S. Forest Service land was approved in November 2014, and construction of the first two miles began earlier this summer.  The project envisions 15+ miles of family-friendly mountain bike trails.  The system is a collaborative effort between the U.S. Forest Service, Town of Killington, Killington Mountain Bike Club, and the Vermont Mountain Bike Association.
Always a sell-out event, players are encouraged to register early, as space is limited.  The cost is $100 per person, and includes golf at Killington Resort, cart, lunch, prizes, and dinner at the Lookout.  Hole sponsorships are available for $125/hole as well.  To register, stop by the Lookout Tavern on Killington Road or call 802-422-5665.
