Tee it up for a Good Cause

16th Annual Jefferson Carnegie Library Golf Tournament

May 17, 2014

 

Hey golfers, tee it up for a good cause - the 16th Annual Jefferson Carnegie Library Golf Tournament will be held at The Challenge at Cypress Hills Golf Club in Waskom Texas on Sunday, May 17, 2014.

 

Call to reserve your spot now.  Tournament is limited to 64 players.  Contact the Jefferson Carnegie Library at 903-665-8911 or the Challenge at Cypress Hills Golf Club at 903-938-4941.

 

Don't golf?  You can still support the Library by becoming a Hole Sponsor for $100.  The sponsorship includes signage at your hole, recognition at the awards banquet and a "Thank You' in the Jimplecute newspaper.  Learn more by contacting the Library.

 

Registration will run from 7:30-8:30 a.m. and we will tee off promptly at 8:30 a.m. with a shotgun start.  Four person teams.  Don't have a foursome?  Don't worry, we will pair you up with a team.

 

Take your best shot at a chance to win a 2014 Chevrolet Truck in the Hole-in-One contest sponsored by EXCEL Chevrolet of Jefferson.  Hole-in-one prizes on the other par-three holes will also be given away.  This year's raffle will include a new Odyssey White Hot two-ball putter by Calloway.  Many other great items will be in the raffle.

 

Registration is $50 per player which includes lunch, chances on the hole-in-one contest, string game, and awards at the luncheon.  We will do our best to wrap up by 1:00 p.m.

 

Just fore fun, come on out for a swinging good time.

 

Many Americans first entered the worlds of information and imagination offered by reading when they walked through the front doors of a Carnegie library. One of 19th-century industrialist Andrew Carnegie's many philanthropies, these libraries entertained and educated millions. Between 1886 and 1919, Carnegie's donations of more than $40 million paid for 1,679 new library buildings in communities large and small across America.  Jefferson's library, built in 1907, is one of only five Carnegie Libraries serving its original function in Texas today. 

 

Operating as a non-profit organization, the library board is committed to the preservation, maintenance and full usage of this historic landmark.  The library depends on donations and the fund raising efforts of the Friends of the Jefferson Carnegie Library.  All proceeds from the golf tournament will be used to operate the library and to preserve a part of history.
