Golfing For Literacy
As the temperature drops a bit and we head into fall, why not enjoy a day of golf on a beautiful course while supporting literacy in Brunswick County?
Brunswick County Literacy Council (BCLC) will celebrate 30 years of golf for literacy at its annual fundraising golf tournament September 19 at Carolina National Golf Club.
Tournament format is Captain’s Choice with an 8 am sign-in, shotgun start at 9:30 am, and three flights—men’s, women’s, and mixed foursomes. The entry fee is $85 per person and includes green fees, cart, a $25,000 hole-in-one contest, breakfast, lunch, beverages, awards presentation, raffle prizes, free subscription to Golf Digest, and a silent auction.
To mark 30 years of fighting illiteracy in Brunswick County, the Council is also offering a chance to score an exclusive BCLC trip for two to San Francisco that combines seaside golf at beautiful Bodega Bay with a Napa Valley wine train tour and tasting, good for the next three years and at a bargain price.
That package, along with more great destinations at great prices for a great cause, will be available from September 8-18 through the “Buy It Now” link on the Council’s website at www.bcliteracy.org. Player registration forms, sponsorship applications, and more information about the tournament are also available on the website.
The golf tournament is a primary source of funding for BCLC and the only fundraising event the Council has been been able to hold this year and still comply with COVID-19 restrictions. It offers businesses, clubs, and individuals the opportunity to support a critical need for Brunswick County residents to improve their literacy skills and open new opportunities for themselves and their families, and, in turn, make them better able to contribute to the community.
Available sponsorships range from $100 to $5,000. Sponsors not only help finance the Council’s mission to provide free assistance with reading and writing skills to adult residents, they also demonstrate their commitment to broader community well-being and development. Every sponsorship level includes recognition on the BCLC website, including sponsor logos and websites when provided. In addition to sponsorships and playing in the tournament, donations of items for raffle prizes or for the silent auction are also welcomed.
Carolina National is taking numerous precautions to ensure a safe environment for members, guests, and staff, including following the North Carolina governor’s Executive Order requiring face coverings when in public spaces at the club.
