After raising more than $88,000 to support local charitable organizations in the past six years of the Bridgeville Charity Open Golf Tournament, volunteer organizers have announced the date for the Town of Bridgeville's seventh annual event. This year's golf tournament is scheduled for Friday, October 11th at Heritage Shores Club in Bridgeville, Delaware.

Registration and a continental breakfast begin at 7:30 a.m. with the shotgun start for the four-player scramble starting at 9:00 a.m. A luncheon and awards ceremony will follow the tournament.

Proceeds from the event will support the worthwhile efforts of three local organizations – the Bridgeville Kiwanis Foundation, the Bridgeville Lions Club and the Bridgeville Senior Center.

The Tournament committee, composed of representatives from the three service organizations and Bridgeville Town staff, is again excited about raising monies for our local charities.

Although 2013 continues to be an economically challenging year, Heritage Shores has provided a top-rated championship course right here in Bridgeville and this Tournament has been well-received each year by both the sponsors and the players.

This year's tournament will be a scramble with the field separated by flights according to handicap. Senior tees will be available and on-course skill contests will be offered for additional prizes.

Last year a total of 63 sponsors and golf foursomes supported our local charities, while giving Bridgeville the opportunity to host a memorable golf tournament that keeps players returning year after year.

Several levels of sponsorship are offered to allow businesses and individuals the opportunity to participate. Hole sponsorships are available for $150 and golfers will pay $145, or $580 per foursome. Additional sponsor opportunities are available, as well.
