We are looking for golfers for our 11th Annual Chef Russell Memorial Golf Scramble set for Sunday, Aug. 12th, at the Batavia Country Club. Alex's Place sponsors this event and it will benefit Crossroads House and the Chef Russell Bugbee Scholarship.
For those who have not played in this tournament before, Colleen Kemp does an amazing job putting together a fantastic afternoon with great people, prizes, and drink specials.
Deadline for registration is Aug. 1.
It is one of the rare weekend golf tournaments out there and spaces fill up fast (we limit it to 128 golfers). Please consider putting together a foursome (we can also put teams together for you if you have less) for a great time, a great charity and a great scholarship opportunity.
Crossroads House -- is a comfort care home that serves the residents of Genesee and Wyoming counties who have been medically determined to be in their last stages of life. It is an alternative to a hospital or nursing home when care can no longer be provided in the patient’s own home. Crossroads is an incorporated not-for-profit organization that provides service free of charge.
The Chef Russell Bugbee Scholarship is awarded as a tribute to Chef Russell, who we tragically lost in October 2010. The scholarship will be awarded to an area high school graduate that is not only pursuing an education in the culinary field, but also has the drive and passion that Chef Russell had for the culinary arts.
Also note that Hole Sponsorships are available for $150 each. Proceeds will go to Crossroads House and the Chef Russell Bugbee Scholarship.
Last year we raised nearly $10,000 toward these two great causes!
Thank you for considering!
