To celebrate 100 years of volunteer service through Rotary, the Rotary Clubs of Lincoln County will work together to build a house in cooperation with Habitat for Humanity of Lincoln County.
In order to raise both awareness of Rotaryâ€™s Centennial Year and necessary funds and to provide an opportunity for fun and fellowship, the clubs will sponsor a golf tournament on Monday, June 21 at Verdict Ridge Country Club.
â€œThe Rotary Clubs of Denver/Lake Norman, Lincolnton, and Lincolnton Sunrise will be working together very closely this year. A Habitat house is a great way for our clubs to improve both Lincoln County and the lives of some very deserving Habitat for Humanity clients,â€ said Steve Gurley, president-elect of the Lincolnton Rotary Club.
Joe Lampron, president-elect of the Denver/Lake Norman club, said the golf tournament will be a great way to highlight the project.
â€œThe clubs have committed to raising a total of $20,000 through both this golf tournament and through in-kind donations of goods and services. Now, we need golfers who want to play a great course and sponsors who will be a part of our Centennial Year.â€
The format of the tournament will be a four-man Captainâ€™s Choice, with both men and women welcome to play. Individual entry will be $75, with team entries costing $300. There are a variety of sponsorship levels available both to businesses and individuals.
Rotary is an organization of business and professional leaders united worldwide who provide humanitarian service, encourage high ethical standards, and help to build goodwill and peace in the world. Paul P. Harris formed the world`s first service club, the Rotary Club of Chicago, Illinois, USA, on February 23, 1905.
