According to Debbie Lowman, the chairperson of the event, “The Seven’s for HOPE Golf Challenge is a great way to have fun playing golf in a super simple format, while giving back to our neighbors in need. Bluffton Self Help is the perfect recipient of money raised from this because there is a great need right now to help defray the costs of their new buidling, which they hope occupy sometime in November. We wanted a way to raise money this Spring quickly and easily, and this format is really simple for anyone at any golf club to get involved.”
The committee is asking that community groups get together and pick a time they want to offer the challenge. They are suggesting that the event last for up to 17 days, and culminate prior to May 31st.The format of play is that a dollar amount is pledged by friends and family for every “seven” a player expects to make over the 17 day suggested time period of the event. Scorecards are tallied at the end of the event, and money is collected. Prizes are given for the highest “winnings”.
To get involved, a player only needs to complete a Pledge & Play card, which will document their pledge amount and provide a place to record sponsor names and pledges.
