Golfers may register for the event at the golf course or by calling the Pro Shop at 483-2926. The golf format is a four-person scramble with men's, women's and mixed divisions with a 1:30 shotgun start. Players also have a chance to win prizes with games such as “longest drive” and “closest to the pin”. A special Hole-In-One contest, sponsored by the Bailey Motor Company, will give golfers a chance to win $10,000, cruises, round-trip airline tickets to anywhere in the Continental U.S., or premium electronics.
For the past nine years the Davio family has chosen to honor the memory of Frank Davio with this event. “We are humbled by the Davio family’s dedication to Hospice of the North Country and we are grateful for their generosity, said Cathlyn Lamitie, Hospice Director of Development/Communications.
The entry fee for Malone Golf Club members is $55 per player and $80 for non-members. Cost includes cart fee, greens fees, prizes, and dinner. All proceeds from this event will remain in the North Country to benefit the patients and families served by Hospice of the North Country. “As a non-profit organization, Hospice depends on contributions from individuals, families, corporations, and community organizations, and once again, area businesses have generously supported this event with sponsorships and gifts,” said Lamitie. “We are grateful to everyone who is supporting and participating in the tournament—you are making a real difference in the lives of the patients and families we serve.”
