by Sherrie Norris
Casa Rustica Restaurant in Boone is hosting its seventh annual Charity Golf Tournament on Aug. 15 at the Boone Golf Club, with shotgun starts at 8:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.
Proceeds from the event will
benefit the High Country Caregiver Foundation and Blowing Rock CARES.
The fundraiser promises to provide a great day of golf, food and prizes -- all in the name of community spirit, according to Casa Rustica Restaurant organizers.
The four-man captain's choice tournament will offer white T-shirts for male players, red for women and gold for both men and women older than 70.
Entry fee is $125 per player and includes greens and cart fee, mulligans, lunch and dinner afterward, which will be held at the clubhouse and provided by Casa Rustica.
Prizes will be awarded for the shot closest to the pins, hole-in-one and all-day raffles.
Hole and banner sponsorships are available from $100 (hole sponsors) to $2,000 (presenting and exclusive sponsors).
