Tournament benefits the hungry and homeless of Niagara County

Community Missions of Niagara Frontier will hold its annual "Par Fore a Mission Golf Classic" on Monday, July 8, at the Seneca Hickory Stick Golf Course in Lewiston.

The four-man scramble will begin with registration from 11 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. Lunch will be provided from 11:30 a.m. until 12:45 p.m., before the 1 p.m. shotgun start.

Tickets to golf are $150 per person and include cart, greens fee, lunch, gift bag, beer and soda, and a steak dinner. Meal substitutions are available upon request.

Following the tournament, cocktail hour provides golfers with the opportunity to purchase 50/50 raffle and basket auction tickets, as well as the chance to view live auction items such as a Callaway driver, Callaway golf bag, a Sabres jersey and more.

All event proceeds will benefit Community Missions' crisis services programs, which include the community kitchen, homeless shelter, Mark's Place (HIV/AIDS residence), clothing closet and food pantry. This signature event will assist in continuing to provide food and shelter to the neediest neighbors of Niagara County.

In addition to participating in the tournament, basket/prize donations and sponsorship opportunities are also available and greatly appreciated.
