Blue-Gold Sussex Golf Classic Oct. 9
The 21st annual DFRC Blue-Gold Sussex Golf Classic is open for registration for interested golfers. This year’s event will take place Friday, Oct. 9, at Sussex Pines Country Club in Georgetown. Participants may sign up in groups of four or register as individual players.
DFRC Blue-Gold Golf Classics are held annually in each of Delaware’s three counties. The first tournament teed off in New Castle County in 1988, and with Kent and Sussex counties following the lead, together the three tournaments have raised more than $1 million for DFRC. At the conclusion of this year, DFRC will break through the $6 million mark in funds given back into the Delaware communities to support education, awareness and services for Delawareans with intellectual disabilities.
The format for the event is a four-person scramble, which will feature contests like closest to the pin and longest drive, and will conclude with an award presentation for top finishers. Participants will receive lunch, an event shirt and a 19th hole reception featuring a dinner buffet immediately following play. Registration begins at 9:30 a.m., and the event kicks off with a shotgun start at 11 a.m.
Part of the constantly expanding events for DFRC supporters, this is the latest endeavor in the months leading up to the 61st Annual DFRC Blue-Gold All-Star Football Game that will be held Saturday, June 18, 2016, at the University of Delaware football stadium. All proceeds benefit programs for people who are intellectually challenged through grants provided by DFRC.
The cost of the event is $125 per participant or $500 per team.
Opportunities are available for businesses and organizations to support this event as a statewide, hole or event sponsor. Sponsor information can be acquired by calling 302-454-2730.
