3rd Annual Western Hills Golf Tournament

 

Come participate in the Third Annual Western Hills Little League Golf Tournament on Monday, April 24, 2017 at Lost Creek Country Club, starting at 10:00AM.

 

We NEED your support to make this event a success. You do not have to be a golfer to help us. Here are some ways you can help:

 

  • Donate Silent Auction Items/Prizes: Please consider donating silent auction items like the ones below and let us know if have any ideas for donations: Baseball memorabilia, Vacations, Hunting and Fishing Items, Jewelry/Spa Items, Home Furnishings, Restaurants, Sports Tickets, Liquor/Wine, Gift Cards, Kid-friendly outings, Gift Baskets, Golf Equipment/Tee Times.  The list is not exhaustive and we are open to suggestions!  This is a great way to get your business some good exposure.
  • Sponsor a hole or green for $300.  Another great way to get your family or business some good exposure as we will have a sign on each tee box and each green with the sponsor name and any other information you want on your sign.
  • Sign up a team of 4 for $500 or an individual golfer for $150. Registration includes 18 holes of golf, a breakfast taco before and lunch afterwards, Adult Beverages, opportunities to win prizes, and lots of fun for a great cause!
  • Sign up as an individual golfer and we'll put you on a team with other WHLL supporters.
  • Offer to help work the golf tournament. We need volunteers to sign people in, monitor the hole in one/closest to the pin prizes, long drive contest, etc.

 Golfers and Hole Sponsors can sign up here.

 If you have silent auction items, donations, or would like to volunteer please email Mike McIntyre at mmcintyre@bisongl.com .

 

Last year we had a great time gathering with our Western Hills community. We need you to help make this year's event an even bigger success!

 

As in past years, we will have special contests to give this golf tournament a true WHLL flavor. We will be reaching out to you soon requesting participation and donated prizes, but it would be really great if this email would prompt unsolicited action from our WHLL families.  Please ask around for silent auction items when you are at your local restaurants, stores or businesses. It is great marketing for them to reach the almost 1,000 families which form Western Hills Little League.

 

We hope that every Western Hills family will consider volunteering or participating in some manner.  This is WHLL's ONLY fundraiser event for the year so let's make it a fun one and raise some money for a great cause!  100% of the money raised goes back into making WHLL better.
