Golf tournament raises $1,500 for charity

Paul Dimascio started a golf tournament as a joke when a threesome became a foursome with a surprise guest at Killington Mountain Golf Course.

“I knew a friend was joining the threesome but the other two didn’t. I called it Paul’s October Tournament or P.O.T,” Dimascio said.

Last year, Dimascio invited friends to the second annual P.O.T, which 18 people attend — $350 was raise for charity. This year 44 friends attended the tournament on Oct. 16, with $1,500 raised for charity.

“It’s not a topical tournament,” Dimascio said. “This year we played four holes of worst ball. On one hole we used an old wood driver and a wood putter.”

Sponsors included Killington Mountain Golf Course, Forerunner Ski Shop, Till I Die apparel, White River Golf Course and The Karr Group. The benefactor was Toby Barclay. Charities included Vermont Suicide Prevention Center and Rutland County Parent Child Center.
