5th Annual Charity Golf Tournament for Blowing Rock C.A.R.E.S to be Held at Blowing Rock Country Club Sept. 25

Makoto’s will be hosting the fifth annual charity golf tournament at one of the High Country’s finest golf courses on Tuesday, September 25. The tournament will have a four-person Captain’s Choice format and has a shotgun start at 1:30 p.m.

The tournament will feature a 50/50 cash raffle, silent auction and great winning team prizes. Dinner will be held at the Blowing Rock Country Club Lakehouse following the tournament and is being sponsored and provided by Sysco Foodservice. Lunch at the tournament is provided by Jimmy John’s. 

Participants can register or get more information by contacting Gwen Dhing at 828-264-7976 or by email at makotosboone@gmail.com.

Net proceeds from the tournament will go to Blowing Rock C.A.R.E.S., a 501 c 3 non-profit organization housed at Rumple Memorial Presbyterian Church and run solely by volunteers. It helps provide basic non-perishable food and hygiene products to families and individuals in Watauga County to supplement other county services and to help fill in the food availability gap. With the poverty level for children in Watauga County at 23 percent and children receiving free/reduced lunch at 41 percent, Blowing Rock C.A.R.E.S. greatly appreciates your support and your involvement to better the community.

You can help make this a successful event in various ways, including:

  1. Organize a team and enter the tournament (mixed foursomes are not only welcomed, but encouraged) – $150 per person or $600 per team of four (includes cart, green fees and dinner). September 20 is the deadline for team registration.
  2. Become a hole sponsor – $100 (you don’t have to play golf to support this event).
  3. Be a sponsor or help recruit some at the $250, $500 and $1,000 level (all sponsors will be recognized appropriately for the level of sponsorship).
  4. Individually, or as a group, donate prizes for winning teams and/or items for the silent auction. Gift certificates are an easy donation!
