For the 3rd year running the Canton Rotary Club (CRC) is proud to host the "Swing fore Education" Golf Tournament partnering with the Canton Educational Foundation (CEF).


The event will be hosted at the beautiful Twin Lakes Golf Course on Monday, October 13 (Columbus Day). Shotgun Start 4-Person Scramble is at 8:30 a.m.


Last year's tournament raised over $24,000 for education in Canton, funds that went towards grants for local teachers through the CEF and 11 scholarships for graduating students from CRC. Both organizations share a common goal of making sure that Canton schools maintain their exemplary status and are working to increase this year's contribution to education in Canton.


This year 120 players across 30 teams will be competing for over $5,000 in prizes including drivers, golf bags and wedges. There will also be an opportunity to win a 2014 Buick Verano from Ray Ridings Buick GMC and a Kayak from Bella Maison Restoration. Lunch will be provided, catered by Applebee's, and drink carts will be making rounds throughout the day. Players will also receive gift bags and a nice tournament pullover. 


We will have a live auction this year which will include 2 autographed footballs from the Chicago Bears and 2 sets of four tickets with parking passes to 2 different Dallas Cowboys games.  Dallas games will both be in November which one will be Thanksgiving Day.  If interested in bidding on these tickets you can be present the day of event and/or through proxy.  You will need to contact Tyke Salazar @ tsalazar@vanzandtcounty.org or Phyllis Wise @ Phyllis.Wise@LegacyACA.com
