Entry fees are $10 for a two-person member team, and $35 for a member with a non-member guest. Call the pro shop at (614) 755-2024 to register.
Rally for Tori’s Angels July 18
For the second year, the LPN women’s league is sponsoring a nine-hole, four-gal best shot event to raise money for Tori’s Angels. The charity provides financial support to Iowa children with life-threatening medical challenges. The event is Thursday, July 18, with check-in at 5 p.m. and a 5:30 p.m. shotgun start. Golf will be followed by a pizza party, door prizes, and silent auction. A highlight will be people involved in Tori’s Angels telling their stories and answering questions.
The entry fee is $40 for LPN members, and $50 for non-members, which covers a T-shirt, golf and dinner. Those who already have a Tori’s Angels T-shirt to wear that night can mark “no shirt needed” on their form, and $15 of their entry fee will go directly to Tori’s Angels.
During golf, there will be special events on each of the nine holes. Once in the clubhouse, there will be more than a dozen door prizes and the opportunity to bid on gift baskets and other items in the silent auction. Some donations so far include $250 in merchandise from Scheel’s, $200 in Vera Bradley products, and two Lake Panorama prints offered by Fin and Feather. Additional donations are being sought. Entry forms are available in both the Panorama West and LPN pro shops, and online. For more details, or to register to just attend the dinner after golf, contact Becky Rolfes at 515-681-9111 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
LPN Gets Support from Granite Club
In 2008, 12 businesses made monetary or in-kind contributions to Lake Panorama National to support the construction of Spikes. In exchange, the businesses received a sponsorship sign on an LPN tee box. Several of these businesses have maintained their sponsorship since. One new member—Minnesota Cabinets—joined the Granite Club this year, and is featured on the 18th hole.
Original Granite Club members who renewed for 2019 are Panora Telco, Guthrie County State Bank/GCSB Investment Center, Exterior Sheet Metal, Bryton Insurance, and Total Financial Solutions.
Five new members joined in 2018 and renewed this year. These are Bristle Farms, Beer Can Alley, Panora State Bank, Hawley Insurance, and Robert Carr/State Farm. Three members joined in 2017, and have renewed annually. These are Martin Brothers, Jensen Sanitation, and Tometich Engineering.
Four holes remain available for sponsorship – seven, 11, 14, and 15. Annual sponsorships are $500. New sponsors also are asked to pay the cost of the sign, which is $250. Granite Club members receive a free round of golf for a foursome, including carts, when they purchase or renew their annual membership. Club members also are recognized on the LPN website and in this newsletter.
