South Windsor "Shootout" Back In May
Once again Willow Brook Golf Course and the Shepard Family will be hosting a business challenge golf tournament with the best team to be named the winner of “The Shoot-out.”
The Shepard Family of South Windsor will provide the first prize of $1500.00 to be donated to the South Windsor non-profit charity of choice for the winning team.
“This is a wonderful day for our business leaders to network and play some golf while giving back to our community at the same time”, said Jeff Beyer, PGA Head Golf Professional at Willow Brook. “We encourage all local businesses to get involved in this event and see if they can “Win The Shootout” and make a donation to their charity of choice.”
All businesses are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity to thank their employees, customers and suppliers by taking them to enjoy a day of golf while networking with other businesses in our community.
“Having the opportunity to host an event like this is special. We not only get to support a charity that benefits our town we get the chance to help grow local business and our economy at the same time,” adds Beyer. “We hope more businesses take advantage of this unique opportunity to help those in need.”
