Valley benefit golf tourneys set
Every spring and summer, there’s an array of golfing benefit tournaments and fundraising events for being held, and they continue with two of the older tourneys on the horizon.
The Sonoma Valley Rotary Club’s 20th annual Louis Minelli Memorial Golf Tournament will take place on Friday, Aug. 26, at the Eagle Vines Golf Club in Napa, with this year’s event being held in memory of longtime member Bob Bohna.
The tourney opens with a noon shotgun start, and the cost is $175 a golfer, which includes green fees and cart, a box lunch, on-course beverages, long-drive hole and closest-to-the-pin contests, tee-prizes and the chance to win a new Chevy Camero.
In addition, Festa Sonoma will take place afterward at the Sonoma Valley Veterans Memorial Building and features a six-course Tuscan-inspired dinner including wine, beer and dancing to the sound of BackTrax.
Entry to Festa Sonoma is included in the golf entry, and the cost to attend the dinner only is $55 in advance or $65 at the door. For more information visit www.sonomavalleyrotary.org, www.festasonoma.com or call 996-9694.
Hanna Boys Center will hold its 19th annual Golf and Tennis Classic on Friday, Sept. 19, at the Sonoma Golf Club.
Check-in starts at 9:30 a.m. and includes a brunch at the Hanna campus, with a shuttle provided to and from the golf course, and the tourney gets underway with an 11:30 a.m. shotgun start. The festivities afterward begin with a hosted cocktail hour at 5 p.m.
The entry fee of $275 includes green fees, cart, privileges on the driving range, refreshments on the golf course, tee-prizes and the awards ceremony.
Anyone interested can sign-up or get more information at the Hanna Boys Center site at hannacenter.org or by contacting Tamara Stanley at 933-2504.
