Golf tourney to benefit Habitat for Humanity

RUTLAND—Habitat for Humanity of Rutland County is pleased to announce the the second annual benefit golf tournament to be held at Proctor Pittsford Country Club Friday, May 26. The tournament will benefit Habitat for Humanity and its upcoming construction project at 42 Cleveland Ave. in Rutland city. The project will build a new single family home on the former site of a burned-out hulk. This home will be sold for zero profit and zero percent interest to a qualifying Rutland family, and will return the home to the city tax rolls while continuing improvements to the Northwest Neighborhood. Proceeds from the mortgage will be used for future building projects.

The golf tournament is a good way to support Habitat and have some fun at the same time. Many local businesses have provided support and sponsorship. A hole-in-one on hole no. 17 will win a Jeep Renegade and a hole-in-one on hole no. 11 will win a Kubota tractor.

Registration for the tournament begins at noon with play beginning with a shotgun start at 1 p.m. The play will be a Captain and Crew format. Dinner will follow along with awarding of many prizes. Golf, carts, dinner and prizes are all included for a $90 entry fee. Sign up by emailing rutlandhabitat@gmail.com.
