Wabash County, IN __Registration is now open for Grow Wabash County’s 25th Annual WACCY Golf Outing on June 3 at the Honeywell Public Golf Course.
Grow Wabash County understands that our local business community has hit hard times due to the current COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting restrictions. So, Grow Wabash County is setting its sights on the brighter, greener days when Wabash County is able to re-open and return to business as usual. As part of those celebrations, Grow Wabash County invites the Wabash County business community to join them for a day of golf, fun and reconnecting with the folks we have become socially distanced from in recent weeks.
Keeping in mind the health and safety of all of its investors, supporters and golfers, Grow Wabash County has also scheduled a back-up date of July 30 in the case that the social distancing recommendations are still in effect come June. Any registrations completed for the June 3 event will be recognized for the July 30 back-up event as well.
The WACCY Golf Outing will, of course, feature some of the Caddyshack-level antics that have become synonymous with the annual fundraising event. This year will see the return of the Golf Ball Cannon for interested golfers looking to kick their game up a notch, as well as the Putting Green Contest. Grow Wabash County will also be offering the ever-popular game boosters such as Mulligans, Pick-A-Putts and Bad Player Insurance.
Registration is $360 per four-person team, which includes 18 holes of golf with a cart, access to a catered lunch from Miller’s Merry Manor and the chance to win a whole assortment of games and prizes. This year’s outing will offer morning (7:30 a.m. start) and afternoon (1 p.m. start) flights on a first come, first serve basis.
Prizes that day will be awarded to these categories: Longest Drive for both Men and Women; Longest Putt; Closest to the Pin; and prizes for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and last place teams. Heartland REMC will once again be sponsoring the Hole-In-One contest, which will include opportunities to win cash prizes of $5,000 on Hole 7, $3,000 on Hole 3, $1,000 on Hole 15, and $1,000 on Hole 16.
The biggest prize of the day, though, will be the custom WACCY Golf Championship Belt, which will be awarded to the grand champion of the 2020 WACCY Golf Outing.
For those businesses in our community that would rather enjoy the day from more of a spectator role, there are many sponsorship opportunities, including becoming a Hole Sponsor ($125) which allows the sponsor to set up at a hole on the course with their own booth or activity to promote their business and connect with the golfers that come through.
Businesses can register as a hole sponsor or opt to sponsor one of the many other features of the day such as the Golf Ball Cannon, the scoreboard, the golf carts or the drink carts. Register today at www.growwabashcounty.com/events.
Grow Wabash County is aware of the financial concerns some of our sponsors and donors may be facing during this time. We are glad to work with any sponsor that would like to participate to arrange the best timeframe and method of payment so that no one gets left out of the game. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any of these concerns.
