Knights of Columbus Cypress Council prepares for annual charity golf tournament

By STAFF     3/16/2016

The Annual Michael Doss Charity Golf Tournament will take place April 15 at the Coyote Hills Golf Course in Fullerton, with proceeds supporting a number of local charities and community services projects.

Grand Knight Virgil Smith says organizations including HOPE, Special Olympics, the American Wheelchair Mission, People with Intellectual Disabilities, Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, His Nesting Place and the La Habra Life Shelter are beneficiaries of the charity event.

Michael Mercer, tournament organizer, says in addition to the golfing there will be a number of contests and side-events, including up to 12 different opportunities to purchase raffle tickets for a wide array of great prizes. Perhaps the most desired is the raffle for a week’s stay in one of Hawaii’s most popular vacation spots, Maui Schooner Resort, located on Maui’s Gold Coast, with beautiful sand beaches and warm Pacific Ocean water. Raffle tickets are $10 each or six for $50, also sold at other locations and times. Winner need not be present at the April 15th drawing.

The golf tournament entry fee is $125 per person, with an 8:00 a.m. shotgun start, and check-in beginning at 6:30 a.m. Golfers will be provided locker and shower room facilities for men and women, GPS-equipped carts and beverage service on the course.
