The winning ticket will be drawn on June 11 at Habitat’s annual summer picnic. The ticket holder need not be present to win.
Walt Jones loved golf. As the owner and operator of both the Old Landing Golf Course until 1979 and Midway Par 3 course prior to his passing in 2010, he donated use of the Midway Par 3 Golf Course for Habitat’s Annual Golf Outing since its inception. His family continues his legacy of giving to this day. Additional annual events, such as the indoor winter Golf Clinic, spring Wine Tasting and Annual Auction Night also provide opportunities for friends and neighbors to support Habitat in his memory.
Tee times of 8:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. are available now for the upcoming Annual Golf Outing, to be held Friday, May 13, at Midway Par 3. To register to golf or to sponsor a hole or a tee, contact Affiliate Relations at (302) 855-1153, ext. 209, or visit: www.waltjonesmemorialproject.com or www.sussexcountyhabitat.org.
