Sarah Bush Lincoln will host its 26th annual golf benefit on Friday, June 12, at Meadowview Golf Course. Net proceeds from the event will benefit the construction of Sarah Bush Lincoln’s new Regional Cancer Center building.
Though its Building Hope Campaign, the SBL Foundation is committed to raising $3.5 million to support the construction of the $15.8 million project, which is now underway. The campaign has already garnered nearly $2 million of its goals.
The event offers golfers a choice of either a morning or afternoon flight. A continental breakfast will be available during morning registration, which begins at 6:30 am, prior to a 7:30 am tee off. Lunch will be served from 11 am to 2 pm and registration for the afternoon flight will be from 11:30 to 1 pm. The afternoon flight will tee off at 1 pm.
Prizes will be awarded to winners of challenges on each of the 18 holes during a reception from 6 to 8 pm in the clubhouse. Prizes include gift certificates from area restaurants, furniture items, Cardinals baseball tickets, Illinois football tickets and Nascar ticket and outdoor living and patio items.
The lucky winner of a raffle will win a seven-night condo stay in Memphis, TN. Tickets for the raffle can be purchased for $10 each during the golf benefit. However, buy early to take advantage of the “buy one, get one free” offer available to anyone purchasing raffle tickets before June 11. You need not be present to win.
Title sponsors for this year’s event include Coles-Moultrie Electric Cooperative; Hinshaw & Culbertson, LLP; the Mattoon Area Family YMCA; and Neal Tire & Auto Services.
