Chic Rhodes, Chairman, CEA Golf Committee

This year’s CEA Annual Golf Tournament marks the 20th year of this gathering of Elks from all over the state to enjoy the comradery of a round of golf together and raise funds for our beloved State Major Project, Connecticut Children’s Medical Center.
 
Once again, the committee has held the cost per person to $100, including golf, cart and dinner.  That is a great deal in today’s tournament arena.  We have done this to help enable golfers from every lodge, at every level of talent to come out, enjoy and support this great charity.
 
There are a few exciting changes to note in this year’s event:
  • Hole signs are still a very affordable and tax deductible $50.
  • Raffle donations are being accepted by any District Chair, so if you have something you would like to donate from yourself or a local business, just contact a committee member.
  • The raffle is being changed to a table raffle this year.  There are several exciting prizes being donated and this will allow participants to put their tickets to the prizes of their choice.
  • There will be a special “Pink Ball” contest within the tournament for every foursome to have a chance at a prize just for not losing their pink ball.
  • One of the Par 3 holes will be a 50/50 contest for players on the green.
 
Every lodge can have a foursome.  Just contact any member of the CEA Golf Committee and let them know your lodge will participate.  If you can bring a tax deductible donation for the raffle, that will help make this the best tournament yet.
 
We hope to see you in Bridgeport!
