KMC has announced that it is shooting to raise $30,000 for the Paul Newman Hole in the Wall Gang Camp when it tees up for the 30th annual KMC Music EPU Charity Golf Tournament on June 5, 2017 in Avon, Connecticut at the Blue Fox Run Golf Course.
“Over the last 30 years this event has raised more than $180,000 for charitable organizations such as the Paul Newman Hole in the Wall Gang Camp and the FIDELCO Guide Dog Foundation. We could not have done that without the support of the dealers and manufacturers who sustain us every year with their participation and with their sponsorship support,” KMC president Mark Terry said. “This year marks the 30th time we have held this event and we want to raise $30,000 for the camp. We call it ’30 for 30’ and we think we can do it.”
The event’s Committee Chair, Roger Hart, is calling upon manufacturers and dealers to help the cause by making a donation to the raffle prize selection and/or sponsoring a hole or a beverage cart or some other event to be determined. Platinum Level Sponsorships, which include a hole sponsorship with corporate signage, mention in print materials, four rounds of golf (including carts), lunch, cocktail reception and dinner can be purchased for $1250. Gold Level Sponsorships include all the benefits of the silver level and two rounds of golf for $625. Individual Golfers can play for $150 and still enjoy the lunch, cocktail reception, and dinner. The Beverage Cart Sponsorship can be purchased for $1500 and that includes corporate signage on the cart, mention in print materials, and four rounds of golf, including carts, lunch, cocktail reception and dinner.
“And we’re open to new ideas from everyone who wants to help us reach our goal for the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp kids,” Hart stressed today. “Bring more golfers, sponsor a hole, donate a prize — we can all do something to make the 30th annual KMC Music EPU Charity Golf Tournament the biggest and best yet.”
The daylong event kicks off at 10:00AM on June 5th with a putting green contest. A box lunch will be provided to each golfer before teeing off at 11:00AM in a shotgun scramble format outing. Over the course of the day golfers will participate in the Hole in One Contest (trip for two to Key West, Florida and two sets of irons), the Longest Drive, Closest to the Pin, Par 3 Hit the Green in One, and Putting Contests. The cocktail reception will follow from 4:00PM to 5:00PM, with dinner, prize raffles, and a charity auction to follow in the evening. Participants can book a room at the Avon Old Farms Inn ($124 per night with attendee code 14374) by visiting www.avonoldfarmshotel.com or calling (860) 677-1651.
