On June 15, the Fishers Sertoma Club will host its first Golf Classic. The event will take place at Stony Creek Golf Course in Noblesville. Proceeds raised will benefit Prevail of Hamilton County, Lutheran Child & Family Services, Hear Indiana, Fishers United Methodist Church Come to Me Food Pantry and Hamilton Southeastern Schools Foundation.
“(Fishers Sertoma Club) is a not-for-profit organization whose efforts through volunteers serve the Hamilton and Marion County areas,” member Deb Persic said. “We chose these charities because of what they do. We felt they were something we wanted to support by virtue of needy families, victims of crime, the hearing-impaired, addressing hunger and education in our county.”
The day will begin with registration at 7 a.m. Tee time is 8 a.m.
“Everyone will be greeted by one of the FSC volunteers who will tell them which tee they will be teeing off from. They will go out and play 18 holes. There are all kinds of prizes on holes,” Persic said.
Contests include men’s longest drive, women’s longest drive, closest to the pin and longest putt. Raffle tickets for prizes also will be available. There are four opportunities for a hole-in-one.
“One (prize) is $18,000 in cash. Another one is airline tickets,” Persic said. “There are also some games that are played on these holes. They have opportunities to win prizes that way. We have a big screen TV to give away and rounds of golf at a variety of golf courses in the area.”
After the golf classic, lunch will be served, along with a presentation about the five organizations FSC supports.
“It raises awareness in the community for those organizations,” Persic said. “Our goal is to see if there is anyone in the community who wants to come out and golf with us while supporting these five, fine organizations.”
