CANTON - Cerebral Palsy Association of the North Country will host its 15th annual Polar Bear Golf Tournament on Feb. 13.
This fundraising event is located at the Best Western University Inn/St. Lawrence University Golf Course in Canton and features nine holes of golf in the snow, warm refreshments throughout the day, prize raffles, and other outdoor activities.
There will be a casual dinner and a short trivia quiz at the end of the night. Some new activities for this years event are a kayak race in the snow and a snowshoeing activity.
All proceeds from this event go toward CP of the North Countrys Outdoor Recreation Program, which provides individuals with disabilities opportunities to enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, canoeing, kayaking, horseback riding and more.
This event is open to the public. Sponsorship opportunities are still available for those interested. If you are a business that does not wish to sponsor but would like to contribute in some way, form a team and come play.
Participants can play golf for $25, have dinner at 5 p.m. for $25, or do both for $40. Tee times for golf begin at 10 a.m. and run in 10-minute increments until 3:30 p.m. Each team has its choice of tee time depending on availability. The format will be a four-person scramble, but if you have less than four people, you are still welcome to play. Polar Bear Golf gear will be sold at the event, so if you are in the area, and would like to stop in and purchase an item, feel free.
If you are interested in participating or becoming a sponsor, please contact Tammy Beaudin, director of Public Relations & Fundraising, at (315) 386-1156 x2005 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
