Retreat golf tourney to benefit children's programs


BRATTLEBORO -- The Brattleboro Retreat will host its 9th Annual Golf Tournament at the Brattleboro Country Club on Wednesday, Aug. 6. All proceeds will help support children's services at the Brattleboro Retreat.

Over the years, the Retreat Golf Tournament has earned a reputation for providing a fun day for all. Each player will enjoy a hearty bag lunch, a day of golf, and a dinner buffet. Registration begins at 10:30 a.m., a shotgun start at noon with dinner at 5:30 p.m. Awards, raffles and an auction start during dinner around 6 p.m.

Each golfer will have a chance to win a 2014 Subaru Impreza. Other contests include closest to the pin, longest drive, straightest drive, 50/50 putting contest, and more.

The award, raffle and auction prizes will include dozens of items including a picnic lunch for four atop the Brattleboro Retreat Tower, New England Patriots tickets, Bose Bluetooth speakers, restaurant gift certificates, golf gear and clothing along with a number of other items. All participants will receive a complimentary wind jacket.

"Our treatment and care isn't just for adults, we also serve many children and adolescents," said Dr. Robert E. Simpson, president and chief executive officer. "Now you can support our work with kids and have a great day of golf."

Registration is $135 for all golfers. Dinner-only tickets may also be purchased for $35 each, giving non-golfers an opportunity to enjoy dinner and participate in the raffles and auctions and relax on the Brattleboro Country Club deck or dining room.
