TAMWORTH — Tamworth's Barnstormers Theatre is holding its first golf tournament fundraiser on June 16 at Indian Mound Golf Club in Ossipee. It will be a 1 p.m. shotgun start.
The format is an 18-hole, mixed scramble. On the eighth hole, there will be a hole-in-one contest, where players have the opportunity to win a Ford Focus — sponsored by MacDonald Motors and Chalmers Insurance Group. The day includes 18 holes, use of cart, raffle, prizes, auction and a barbecue dinner presented by River's Edge Grille and Tavern. Sponsored by the MacCabe Family Foundation, the cost per player is $75 (Indian Mound members $60).
"For years, we've considered organizing a golf tournament as so many of our neighbors and supporters are avid golfers," said Barnstormers' Bob Shea. "By holding it on Father's Day Weekend, we're hoping families will give dad a pass to play golf or even make it a family event!"
All proceeds go to the nonprofit Barnstormers Theatre and will help support its summer stock — eight plays in eight weeks, Young Actors Project, and the theatre's availability to local performing groups in the fall and spring.
Entry forms may be downloaded at www.barnstormerstheatre.org or call 323-8661. Tee sponsorships are available for $75.
