Golf tourney to benefit Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity of Lake-Sumter will host a golf tournament fundraiser 8:30 a.m. April 28 at Mission Inn’s Las Colinas course in Howey-in-the-Hills to benefit Habitat’s veteran-based housing project, Veterans Village.
Habitat officials say registration is now open for the ChariTee Golf Tournament, featuring a day of golf and awards luncheon on-site at Mission Inn. To register, golfers are encouraged to visit, email, or call 352-483-0434, extension 146. Tickets are $125 for an individual or $500 for a foursome, which includes a round of play as well as the meal afterwards.
Check in starts at 7:45 a.m. as well as the putting competition before the shotgun start. During the day, players will be competing for Longest Drive and Closest to the Pin, and the winning overall foursome will receive a “Night on the Town” prize package.
Proceeds from the tournament will be used to further Habitat’s veterans housing initiatives in the community, including the Veterans Village in Umatilla, and the preservation and repair efforts and the newly-formed Youth Construction Academy.
“A special thank you to our major event sponsors who helped make this event possible,” Matt Owen of Habitat said in a press release. “United Southern Bank has been a consistent partner with previous events and programs, and we’re excited to have Age Wave Solutions join us in our efforts.”
