Killington to host High Fives Foundation golf tourney

KILLINGTON—The High Fives Non-Profit Foundation has announced its plans to host the 5th annual charity golf tournament in Vermont on Sunday, Aug. 13. The event, sponsored by GoPro, Vermont North Ski Shop and Kingsbury Companies, will take place at the Killington Golf Course. All proceeds support mountain action sports athletes who have suffered life-altering injuries.

“Our community in Vermont continues to spread with the opportunity to have the 5th annual High Fives golf tournament in Killington this year,” said Vermont native and High Fives Executive Director Roy Tuscany. “This is so exciting to have this venue hosting this fundraiser for the Foundation. Thank you, Killington Mountain Resort.”

Following the 12 p.m. registration, the day’s events will kick off with lunch provided by Boar’s Head meats from Davis Family Deli Provisions and a “Break the Glass” competition sponsored by Elevation Physical Therapy, in which golfers will attempt to shatter a pane of glass by hitting golf balls at it from a challenging distance.

At 2 p.m. the 36 teams will load their carts, make their way to the course and compete for prizes. Along with Best Team prizes, throughout the day there will be an array of on-course challenges like Longest Drive, Baseball Bat Longest Drive, Closest to the Pin, and the Air Cannon drive. Everyone has a chance to win!

“We are absolutely stoked to host the annual High Fives charity golf tournament here at the Killington Golf Course,” said Dave Beckwith, head golf professional at Killington Golf Course. “We feel our fun and engaging environment matches well with the High Fives brand. This should be a memorable event, and we are honored to support this terrific cause.”

After the golf tournament, dinner, drinks and awards will be hosted at the Lookout Tavern in Killington, with dancing to music from DJ Professor.
