The Woodstock Public Safety Foundation is making a last-minute push for sponsors and participants for its annual golf tournament.
According to Woodstock Police Department spokeswoman Brittany Page, there are still a number of spaces open for this event, both for those who wish to help sponsor the tournament and those wanting to hit the links for a good cause. This year’s event will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 13 at The Golf Club at Bradshaw Farm, located at 3030 Bradshaw Club Drive in Woodstock.
“This will be the fifth year the Woodstock Public Safety Foundation has hosted its annual golf tournament,” Page said. “Last year, we raised approximately $10,000 for the Shop with a Hero program.”
Entry fees for the tournament are $75 for an individual golfer and $300 for a team of four. Registration begins at 8 a.m. and will continue until 9:15, with the tee-off set for 9:30 a.m. Sponsorships range from $500 to $1,500 and allow sponsors at any level to enter a team of four into the tournament, while a sign for the sponsoring business is placed at one of the holes along the course.
In addition to supporting the Shop with a Hero program the foundation holds every year, Page said the money raised through the golf tournament helps with a number of other programs as well. These include an emergency aid program to help public safety employees who have been injured in the line of duty, the purchase of special equipment for the police and fire departments and educational materials and other similar items designed to enhance the partnerships the public safety agencies share with the residents of Woodstock.
“The Woodstock Public Safety Foundation has been a valuable partner in the effort to preserve our City’s heritage as a great place to live, work, play and raise a family. Its projects aid the City’s public safety team in realizing its goal of providing best in class service to the citizens of our great city,” Woodstock Police Chief Calvin Moss said in a statement on the foundation’s website.
Along with Moss’s comments, Woodstock Fire Chief Dave Soumas added, “The Woodstock Fire Department is grateful for the continued support of the Woodstock Public Safety Foundation.”
