Couples Day Tees Up for "Crush Cancer"
The Social League celebrated a day of fun and friendship at Isabella on June 13th by hosting a Couples Day outing & luncheon to raise money for the UAMS Winthrop P. Rockefeller Center Institute in Little Rock, Arkansas' only cancer research and treatment facility. Most members and guests anted up to win prizes on designated holes. Winners were: Jimmie Carpenter won the 50/50 pot for $160; Marilyn Thomasson won the $30 drawing on the Play Par 5's as a Par 3 event; Claire Crumpler won $15 on the ladies' closest to the pin on Pinta #8 (she made a 13'8" putt for her very first birdie ever!); Steve Shorts won $25 on the men's closest to the pin on Nina #8; Lisa Morris and Steve Shorts won the Putting for Fun Trophies event. Lisa and Steve get to enjoy their trophies for the season, but will return them to the league in September for next year's winners. Well worth noting is all cash winners donated their prizes back to "Crush Cancer" to benefit the UAMS Winthrop P. Rockefeller Center Institute. In all, the League raised $890! Many thanks to all!
Tailgate registration worked out well! Sponsor signs surround the putting green!
