Guest Column: Annual tournament honors Satterwhite’s legacy

-A A +A

We are proud to announce that we have set a date for our 12th annual Charlie Satterwhite Memorial Golf Shamble.  This year’s tournament will take place on Saturday, March 31st at Fairway Golf Course in Wheatley.  Your participation over these past eleven years has been greatly appreciated.  Your efforts have allowed us to raise over $110,000 for our two charitable organizations.
Our tournament proceeds go to benefit the Satterwhite Foundation of the Trust for Life Organ Donation program, which is sponsored by the Circuit Clerk’s Association. This fund helps pay expenses for donor recipients and their families. Also, these proceeds go to benefit the Owen County Senior Citizens Activity Fund.  Last year we raised over $5,000 for each of these organizations and we would like to see that total rise this year.  We are increasing our efforts to raise additional funds for both programs this year, because of the service the Satterwhite Fund provides too many families and we also plan on using these proceeds to increase activities for our senior    citizens.
We are asking you to consider sponsoring a hole for this year’s tournament.  The minimum price to sponsor a hole is $150. If you have sponsored with a higher donation in the past, we would hope that you could continue that level of support.  Your sponsorship includes a sign identifying you as that hole sponsor, as well as several mentions during the announcement portion of the tournament. Sponsorship of a team is greatly encouraged or having you bring a team to participate would be great. I have included a flyer and an entry form for your information.  If you choose to participate as a sponsor again this year, please make your check payable to Fairway Golf Course    and mail to me at 12905 Hwy. 127 S., Owenton, Ky., 40359.  
If you do not wish to sponsor a hole, but would consider the donation of a door prize please call me at 502-750-2943 or by e-mail at judge@setel.com.  We understand that the economy dictates at what level you may be able to donate for a sponsorship.  We would gladly accept any level of support you can offer.  Please remember your donation is tax deductible.
Thank you again for your consideration and I look forward to hearing from you in the near future.
