The Bridge Center Annual Golf Tournament at Olde Scotland Links

The Bridge Center, a non-profit (501)(c)( 3) recreation center that serves children with developmental, physical and emotional disabilities, will host its 19th annual Golf Classic on Monday, July 19, 2010 at the Olde Scotland Links in Bridgewater, Mass. and the Lakeville Country Club in Lakeville, Mass.

A scramble format will be in play for the Classic. Entry fee is $250 per person and includes golf fees, cart, prizes, lunch and buffet dinner. One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to The Bridge Center. Of the $250 entree fee, $175 is tax deductible.

"The Golf Classic is the largest fundraiser we hold every year and is always well attended, which is why we're holding it on two courses," said Jenn Harber, The Bridge Center's Executive Director. "In the past, this event has sold out, so anybody interested in playing for a great cause should sign up by June 30."

Interested golfers can register for the Classic online on The Bridge Center's Web site at If you can't make the golf tournament, you can attend the dinner for $75, including cocktails. Registration for dinner is also done via The Bridge Center's Web site.

In addition to the golf tournament, a live auction will be held during dinner. Channel 5's Susan Wornick, a longtime supporter of The Bridge Center, will be the guest auctioneer.
