MARINES ANNOUNCE TOYS FOR TOTS GOLF TOURNEY

0

The St. Croix Marine Corps Association will hold its 6th Annual "Toys For Tots" Golf Tournament on Sept. 30, 2001.
Toys For Tots, a U.S. Marine Corps tradition for more than 55 years, has the mission of insuring that no needy child goes without a toy for Christmas. The program distributes an estimated 7 million toys nationwide.
Marines in the territory distributed over 700 toys last Christmas to such local charities as The American Red Cross, Angel Tree, The Women's Coalition and others.
"Every penny raised for the event goes to the purchase and distribution of toys," said former Marine Corps officer and local businessman Carl Gotts, who serves as the St. Croix association’s executive director. "We can always depend on the tremendous support of the St. Croix business community and the golfers who make it all possible."
This year’s tournament will once again be held at the Carambola Golf Course with a 0830 tee time. That's 8:30 a.m. for civilians. The entry fee is $ 85.00 per golfer, which includes a goodie bag, lunch buffet, chances for raffle prizes, Hole-in-One prizes and a great morning of golf.
The format will be a four-person scramble with a shotgun start. Call the Carambola Pro Shop at 778-5638 to register or Gotts at 719-4065, Cell# 771-0486. Semper Fi!
