YMCA Southcoast’s signature funding event is hitting a milestone this year. On Monday, September 30, golfers will tee off in support of the Y for the 25th time at Marion’s renowned Kittansett Club located at 1 Point Road in Marion.

“This is a wonderful event for our Y supporters to come together to enjoy a round of golf while helping our community,” said YMCA Southcoast President & CEO Jim Scherer. “Every dollar raised helps children and families participate in Y memberships, camps, and programs, regardless of their ability to pay.”

Tournament format is best two balls of a foursome.

This full day of golf, food, and fun starts at 11 a.m. with registration and lunch, followed by a noon shotgun start. After 18 rounds of golf at the nationally-ranked Kittansett Club, there will be networking, cocktails, and hor's d’ oeuvres at 5 p.m., with dinner, an awards ceremony, and silent auction to follow. For the first time this year, the silent auction bidding will be available online beginning on September 25. Items can be found HERE.

Sponsorship opportunities are still available. For more information visit ymcasouthcoast.org or contact Robyn Branco, Director of Mission Advancement at 508.996.9622 x128 or rbranco@ymcasc.org.

100% of the proceeds from this tournament will benefit the Y's annual campaign.

As a leading nonprofit committed to strengthening community through youth development, healthy living, and social responsibility, the Y works to help children and teens discover their full potential by providing opportunities to learn, grow and thrive amidst caring, supportive adults.
