NARFE golf tournament to raise funds for Alzheimer’s research


Registration is under way for the annual golf tournament to raise funds for Alzheimer’s research and the Sussex Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association, sponsored by Coastal Sussex Chapter 1690 of the National Active & Retired Federal Employees Association (NARFE).
The charity event will be held on Friday, June 3, at 9 a.m. at the Salt Pond Golf Club near Bethany Beach. Prior tournaments have resulted in contributions of more than $7,000 for Alzheimer’s research.
The tournament fee is $75 per player, which includes the greens fees, a cart and a luncheon at the Cottage Café in Bethany Beach following the tournament. The format will be a shotgun start and “best ball” play.
The post-tournament luncheon will include door prizes, prizes for the top-finishing foursomes and a live auction of items, including golf foursomes donated by area golf courses.
For a $50 contribution, individuals and businesses can sponsor a hole at the tournament. Sponsors will have their name and business advertised on their respective tee boxes.
Anyone interested in registering for the tournament should contact Bob Schappert at rschappert@verizon.net. Charity sponsors and donors of gift certificates or goods should contact Carol Weber at caw09@mchsi.com.
