First Annual Ader/4-H Golf Scramble

The First Annual Ader/4-H Golf Scramble has been re-scheduled for Friday, September 14 at the Parke County Golf Club after last Friday’s rain-out.

Proceeds from the Golf Scramble will support the creation of the Alan Ader Family Tops in 4-H Leadership Award in honor of Alan Ader and his family’s dedication to the Parke County 4-H Program. This fund will generate a cash award annually to a deserving 10 year 4-H member who exhibits exceptional leadership qualities. All proceeds will be managed within the Parke County Community Foundation, (PCCF) which will be providing a $2,500 match for donations. The first award will be presented during Annual 10-Year Member Recognition during the Parke County Fair.

The event will use a scramble format and is open to the public. There is a registration fee that includes 18 holes of golf, green fees, golf cart, lunch and an afternoon of fun celebrating the Ader Family and Parke County 4-H Program. Hole sponsorships are available.

If you’re not a golfer, join the group just for lunch from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. There will also be a Golf Ball Drop prior to start. You can purchase golf balls for a chance to win. Ader will drop them from REMC bucket truck onto the putting green. First one in or closest to the pin will win half the pot.

Check-in and lunch September 14 will begin at 11 a.m. at the Parke County Fairgrounds Commercial Building, located adjacent to the Parke County Golf Club. The Scramble itself begins with a shotgun start at noon.

Online registration and/or sponsorship is available at parkecountyfairgrounds.com. For more information or questions, contact Kim Grayless by phone at: (765) 592-1478 or by email at: knicholas7@ivytech.edu.
