“Swing Fore our Seniors” Golf and Tennis Tournament

Talbot County is blessed to have a thriving senior center at Brookletts Place in Easton.  As the only county-run Senior Center in Talbot County, the center strives to continuously expand to provide even more for area seniors over and above our well-rounded menu of available services and resources. It is with this desire that we enter into a partnership with the YMCA of the Chesapeake.  By this time next year, we will be operating senior programs and meal services to residents in the Bay Hundred area from our permanent center housed within the St. Michaels Family YMCA. In order to do this, we must continue to rely on the generosity of our loyal sponsors and supporters.

In collaboration with the YMCA, we are planning our premier fundraising event of 2018, “Swing Fore our Seniors” Golf and Tennis Tournament. This exciting event will be run on two separate days with the tennis tournament on Sunday, September 30th and the golf tournament on Tuesday, October 2nd. Our planning committee expects this event to draw in over 150 participants and numerous spectators. It is our hope that members of the community would consider supporting this event.

The Tennis Tournament on September 30th will have Mixed Doubles, Adult/ Youth and a Celebrity portion of the tournament.  The tournament will be held at the Peachblossom YMCA tennis courts and will include a picnic lunch.  Our Celebrity players will include a few of the Tennis Pros at the YMCA along with the YMCA of the Chesapeake CEO Robbie Gill. Bring the whole family to cheer on the players! The celebrity’s partner will also have a goal to raise funds for the Senior Center.  Look for these local tennis enthusiasts to be reaching out to you for your support!

The 18-hole scramble Golf Tournament will begin with a continental breakfast and registration at 9 a.m. and tee off 10 a.m., Tuesday, October 2nd from the Hog Neck Golf Course.  There will be on-course beverages, free range balls, and an after-party celebration to include the golf and tennis communities.  A contest package featuring two mulligans, closet to pin and hole-in-one will be available, as well as a putting and chipping contest.  The tournament is open to all ages.

Childlene Brooks, Manager of Brookletts Place states she is excited about the upcoming tournaments and pleased to have the support of a committee of tennis and golf enthusiast to help make this premier event a reality.  Proceeds from the tournament will not only help with the expansion into the Bay Hundred area but will also help us continue to offer quality programs and activities at Brookletts Place.

Committee member and tennis player, Eleanor Shriver Magee states, “I think this is the best idea – who does not like to play and or watch two sports (tennis and golf) over two days and have the proceeds support such an amazing cause like TCSC! I cannot wait to swing my racket at this event.  And I know my fellow golfers feel the same way.”

Wayne Wilson, said, “I’m excited to be part of the planning committee for the Golf and Tennis Tournaments to benefit Brookletts Place.  As a resident of Baltimore County, I volunteered with the Sports and Recreation Program for physically challenged children.  Now that I’m a resident of Talbot County and older, I see (and feel) the needs of our seniors in Talbot County.  My wife and I are both members of the Senior Center and utilize the fitness and computer centers regularly.  Over the years we’ve developed new friendships at the Senior Center and, unfortunately, have seen some of those new friends pass.  But fortunately, they received multiple services at Brookletts Place and did not find themselves inactive or alone in those final days.  They were able to socialize, exercise, watch TV, play cards, travel, and eat a nutritious meal at least once a day with others.  As an employee for Talbot County’s Hog Neck Golf Course and avid golfer, I can’t think of a worthier cause.  If you cannot golf or play tennis, you can always be a sponsor or, volunteer your time and talents, or come watch the event.  You will see first-hand how vital it is to keep our Talbot County Seniors happy, healthy, and productive in their golden years.”

Online registration information for tennis is available at http://mscf.givezooks.com/events/copy-of-swing-fore-our-seniors-tennis-tournament-2018 and for golf at: http://mscf.givezooks.com/events/swing-fore-our-seniors-golf-tennis-tournaments-2018 or you may contact Childlene Brooks, at 410-822-2869 or cbrooks@uppershoreaging.org for a registration form and additional information.  Sponsorship opportunities are also still available either through the online registration link or by mailing your check payable to Mid Shore Community Foundation to Brookletts Place, 400 Brookletts Avenue, Easton, MD.
