Registration open for annual Gordon Scott Memorial Golf Scramble

May 24, 2019

ARGILLITE, Ky. — The Hillcrest-Bruce Mission is hosting the 29th annual Gordon Scott Memorial 4-Person Team Golf Scramble at River Bend Golf Club in Argillite on Saturday, June 1. This is one of the Mission’s two major fundraisers for the year, and registration is currently open.

“Our Work Placement Program seeks to eliminate generational poverty,” said Mike Maynard, executive director of the Mission. “We accept parents receiving government assistance and provide mentorship and Adult Education to help them earn their GED and/or get them ready for college. Over the last year, three have earned their GED and nine are in college (two of those on the Dean’s List and one was just accepted into the RN program). And, our first work placement student graduates with a degree this Spring! We have also had two of our work placements secure full-time jobs. This is a hand-up to help eliminate poverty.”

Another area that Maynard said was crucial to the region is the gap in health care needs.

He said, “We have neighbors whose insurance won’t cover dental/dentures, hearing aids, diabetic supplies or even eye glasses. We are fortunate to have received a grant that has helped over 500 people over the last three years with those things their insurance will not cover.”

The Mission offers many programs at no cost to its neighbors:

• Education Needs (Preschool, Adult Education, Financial Literacy, Parenting)

• Health Needs (Dental/Dentures, Eyeglasses/Exams, Hearing Aids & Diabetic Supplies)

• Basic Needs (Food, Cleaning, Hygiene, Diapers, Clothing, Underwear & Shoes)

• Social Needs (Homemakers, Bingo, Nutrition Classes, Cooking Classes, Addiction Support)

• Spiritual Needs (Ladies Bible Study, Men’s Group, Youth Group, Summer Camps)

Registration is $280 per foursome and begins at 7:30 a.m. with a shotgun start set for 8 a.m. Fee includes 18 holes of golf with cart, coffee, doughnuts, soft drinks and lunch.

The winning four-some will win three-rounds of golf each and there are four $50 Gift Cards for “Closest to the Pin” on four different par threes. They also have door prizes and will auction off a year membership to the YMCA.

Hole Sponsorships are available at the $100, $250, $500 and $1,000 levels.

To register or for more information, contact Mike at the Mission at 606-324-5723 or by email at director@hillcrestbrucemission.com.
