Rotary Interact to host golf tournament Sept. 10

Wednesday, September 5, 2018

The Eureka Springs High School Rotary Interact Club will host its third annual 9-Hole Golf Tournament at 5 p.m. Monday, Sept. 10, at the Holiday Island Golf Course. This will be a four-person scramble with a shotgun start to be played on the front nine of the 18-hole golf course.

Registration forms can be picked up at the Holiday Island Pro Shop. Sign up as a team or individually and you will be assigned a team. In addition, there will be a silent auction set up during the tournament and brats or hot dogs will be served after the tournament.

This tournament is the major fundraiser for Rotary Interact for the year. The club is sponsored by the Eureka Springs and Holiday Island Rotary teams. Students are sent to Rotary youth Leadership Awards camp during their junior year of high school, and proceeds from the tournament help send students to camp.

The balance of funds raised through the tournament and other fundraisers throughout the year is divided between various charities and causes in the community and around the world. Last year, the club donated $1,500 to Samaritanís Feet to provide new shoes before school started for Carroll County children in need, $600 to Dolly Partonís Imagination Library to provide books to preschool children in Carroll County and additional funds to purchase a wheelchair through the American Wheelchair Project, as well as to help the animals at Good Shepherd Humane Society.
