to be held Monday
DACULA - The sixth-annual Jack Dwyer Golf Tournament and Silent Auction will take place Monday at the Trophy Club Apalachee in Dacula, 1008 Dacula Road.
Though all tournament slots have been filled, plenty of opportunities to participate remain through the event's silent auction and Remembrance Pledge Program. As in years past, proceeds from the event will benefit the Georgia Cancer Foundation.
The tournament and silent auction will begin at 10 a.m. The auction, which is open to the public, will close shortly after the winners of the tournament are announced, usually about 3:30 p.m. Participants will bid on such items as airline tickets, golf packages, a Chastain Park concert package, Braves tickets, framed art, restaurant gift cards and autographed sports memorabilia.
The Remembrance Pledge Program invites participants to raise $100 each in sponsorship pledges. Those that raise more than $500 will have their choice of a portable DVD player, a digital camera or a $50 gift card to the PGA Store. The program's grand prize, a 42-inch flat screen TV, will be awarded to the person who raises the most over $2,000. Pledges must be turned in before 10 a.m. Monday at the tournament to be eligible for prizes.
