You are invited to join members and friends of St. George Rotary to Swing for Literacy at the 9th annual charity golf tournament on Friday, October 28. The event will be held at the beautiful Sunbrook Golf Course.
Pre-registration is required. Lunch, sign-in and warm-up begins at 11:30 a.m. followed by a shotgun start at noon.
For a total of $450 per foursome – or $125 per person – as many as eighteen teams will take to the course. In addition to a fair amount of competition on the course, golfers will also vie for prizes, including more than $1500 in donated merchandise from Camping World, which has been the main sponsor for this event for several years.
All proceeds will benefit the club’s three literacy and projects including dictionaries for all 3rd grade students in the Washington County School District; books for the St. George Children’s Museum and the annual 4-Way Test Essay Contest for intermediate school students.
Additional donations from tournament participants will go toward the 59-member service club’s signature humanitarian project which involves building simple cinderblock stoves for Mayan families in Guatemala.
Donations will also be accepted in support of Rotary’s most important project – the final eradication of polio, a project Rotary initiated in the Philippines in the early 1980’s. Since then, with the aid of partners such as the World Health Organization, US Centers for Disease Control and the Gates Foundation, the incidence of polio in the world has been reduced by 99.9% with a current worldwide case count in 2022 of just 23 cases – all in Pakistan, Afghanistan or Mozambique.
St. George Rotary Club is the first – chartered in 1931 – and now one of six Rotary clubs in Washington County, including St. George Sunrise, Hurricane Valley, Washington City, Zion Canyon and Southern Utah Veterans Rotary Clubs.
