Registration is filling up fast for the June 14th event, and we wanted to take this opportunity to let our golfers and sponsors know what’s in store this year.
Once again Keil Financial Advisory Group is hosting the always exciting Million Dollar Shoot Out, and there will be four major hole-in-one prizes, including cars, trips and more. The gorgeous Crown Isle course will be buzzing on Wednesday with games, delicious food, beverages and activities on all 18 holes, keeping our golfers well fed and entertained.
After golf, our participants will get to enjoy an incredible supper in the Crown Isle Ballroom, where they can mingle, mull over many amazing silent auction prizes, then get ready to out-bid one another for one of our 10 live auction items.
