The Greater Herkimer Lions Club will be holding its 38th annual golf tournament benefiting the blind and visually impaired as well as many local charities (e.g. Herkimer County Hunger Coalition; Loaves and Fishes).

The event will be held on Friday, September 20th, 2024, at the Golf Club of Newport. The format is a four-person scramble with men’s and ladies’ divisions.

The $130 entry fee includes golf, cart, contests (long drive, putting, closest to the pin, hole in-one-prize is a new car donated by Steet-Ponte Chevrolet), lunch, dinner, awards, open bar c.5-6 PM, and refreshments on the course (fried baloney sandwiches).

The closest to the pin contest requires a $5 donation benefiting Erin’s Light with the winner getting a 55 inch T.V.
