KCCH annual golf tournament, a four-person scramble with scratch and handicap winners, will be held Monday, May 19 with a 1 p.m. shotgun start at Lakeside Country Club Penn Yan. The price to play is $75/golfer. Carts, greens fees, lunch and heavy hors d’oeuvres will be included.

Dale Lane, Mark Morse, and Fisher Tree Service will sponsor the Golf Ball Drop at the conclusion of the golf tournament. The winners will share in a percentage of the sales, and will be determined by the number of balls in the hole. The payout will be 15 percent for a ball in the hole, 10 percent for nearest to hole and 5 percent for second nearest. If more than one ball lands in the hole, the payout will be divided by the number of balls in the hole.

Numbered balls will be sold for $5 a chance prior to the drop from any golf committee members or at various locations around town. The golf ball drop is open to everyone, so come up around 5 p.m. to see the ball drop and find out who wins.

Several sponsorships are available: tournament, lunch, towel, and hole sponsor. To join the supporters of KCCH and the golf tournament, call KCCH at 315-536-1690 or Dick Correnti at 315-314-1353.

Volunteers needed

Volunteers who would like to help out that week are being sought for set up May 27 and 28; tagging and sorting May 29 and 30; and the sale May 31 and June 1. “If you have a few hours to share with us that week, we would love to have your help. We are especially in need of people with good backs and a good truck to help us with the bigger donations. If you have a youth group who could help us out on Monday for a couple of hours early in the day, that would be great!” says Maureen Wise, event coordinator.
