Fort Gay Alumni Host Golf Tourney to Raise Funds for Scholarship
The Fort Gay High School Alumni Association will host the 5th annual Joe Damron Memorial Golf Tournament on Friday, September 1, 2017, at Eagle Ridge Golf Course at Yatesville Lake State Park in Louisa, KY.
The best ball tournament begins at 9:00 a.m. and is open to the public. Registration begins at 7:30 a.m. “The golf course is in excellent condition again this year,” said Paul Salmons, the tournament chairman.
The Alumni Association hosts the tournament to raise money to support an endowed scholarship it established through the Marshall University Foundation Inc. Each year, a senior at Tolsia High School, Fort Gay, WV, is awarded a four-year academic scholarship to Marshall University. This year’s award winner will share $12,000 for the 2017-18 school year with three previous Tolsia graduates, all of whom are designated by Marshall as “Fort Gay Scholars”. The alumni group has funded 58 scholarships to 25 scholars since the initial grant in 1999.
The entry fee is $50 per person, or $200 to sponsor a team of four persons. The fee includes the cost for cart, green fees, a continental breakfast, snacks, beverages, and lunch. There also will be prizes and awards.
“If you are unable to play, you can still help us raise money for the scholarship by sponsoring a golf hole for $100”, added Salmons. Please contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org, or (606) 652-4048, if you wish to play in the tournament or want additional details about sponsorships.
