LAWRENCE, Kan., Aug. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The Lawrence Memorial Hospital Endowment Association will once again be hosting the Penny Jones Open golf tournament. The event is scheduled for Friday September 6, 2013 and will take place at the captivating Alvamar Golf and Country Club in Lawrence. The registration deadline is this Saturday, August 31 and the registration fee is $175 for each player. There will be a choice of two tee times, one at 8 am and another at 1:15 pm.
Participants will be provided with a variety of activities. On top of the 18 holes will be a putting contest, multiple on-course skill prizes, a tournament gift, refreshments throughout the course and an award ceremony. Breakfast and lunch will be provided for all participants. Also included in the fee is the chance to win a brand new car courtesy of Briggs Auto, one of the sponsors of the tournament. The auto group will be giving a car to the first participant lucky enough to sink a hole in one shot.
The tournament committee has set a goal to raise $115,000 in net proceeds to go towards community programming and equipment for the hospital. Since it began more than 30 years ago, the Penny Jones Tournament has raised more than one million dollars. Money from last year's tournament went towards a variety of upgrades including a wireless fetal monitoring system, new vital signs monitors and recliners for patient rooms. Tournament proceeds also funded a large window in the hospital's nursery to allow families of special needs babies to keep an eye on their newest addition.
Participants who don't happen to sink a hole in one shot still have the chance to get a car from Briggs Auto. The Kansas-based auto group offers a variety of different models, both new and used. The professionals at Briggs can be reached at (888) BRIGGS-1 or through their website at www.briggsauto.com.
