Up To The Minute News

Faith in Action Volunteers/BC Council of Churches Golf Classic Aug. 13

Last Update: 6/10 9:35 am
From Broome County Council of Churches:

The 9th Annual Faith in Action Volunteers Golf Classic and BBQ of the Broome County Council of Churches will be held on Friday, Aug. 13, at Traditions at the Glen in Johnson City. The four-person captain and crew format tourney begins at 1 p.m.

Registration and a putting contest begin at noon. Discount rates of $100 for individual golfers are available through July 30; the rate goes to $125 on July 31. The rate covers greens fee, golf cart, BBQ dinner, refreshments, gifts and prizes, including a hole-in-one contest for a new car from the Miller Auto Team. Other contests will be held for longest drive (male and female), closest to the pin and the putting contest.

Several levels of business sponsorship are available for the tournament and include sponsorship signs on the tee and flyer or company publicity in all giveaway bags. For more information, contact Joanne Kays at the Council of Churches, 724-9130, ext. 304, or visit

The proceeds from the tournament benefit Faith in Action Volunteers (FIAV), a program of the Council of Churches. FIAV is a network of individuals from religious congregations that share traditions of human concerns for others, working with the frail elderly, the chronically ill and the disabled to help these people maintain their independence, dignity and quality of life. About 300 volunteers assist some 400 clients-at no cost to them—by providing transportation to medical appointments, help with grocery shopping, light housekeeping, home visits and minor home repairs or yard work.
