23rd Annual Scott Verbic Golf Tournament Set to Tee Off

Leonardtown, MD – The St. Mary’s County Department of Recreation & Parks announces the 23rd Annual Scott Verbic Memorial Golf Tournament. This year’s event takes place Friday, October 12, at the Wicomico Shores Golf Course in Mechanicsville. The event is held in remembrance of Scott Verbic who was a Recreation Advisory Board Member, volunteer coach and advocate for youth in the community.

In the event’s 23-year history, more than $144,500 has been raised. This year’s event is likely to surpass the $150,000 mark. Proceeds support the youth scholarship program, which provide children in St. Mary’s County an opportunity to attend summer camp, sports and other leisure programs throughout the year at a discounted rate.

Space remains for team entries. Team registration fee is $340 and includes greens/carts fee for 4 golfers, breakfast, lunch, drinks on the course and door prize entry. The event includes a best ball format with opportunities to participate in various raffles, closest to the pin, longest drive and other contests. Participants will enjoy a day of fun, sportsmanship and giving youth a chance to experience recreation.

Recreation and Parks seeks additional community support from businesses to supply door prize sponsorships, which can include. but are not limited to, gift certificates to local business, item donations and more. In addition to supporting a good cause, event sponsorship is also a great way to promote your business. Recreation and Parks thanks ADF Community Outreach for being this year’s gold sponsor.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
