Heads Up: 22nd Annual Fishers Island Churches Golf Classic

The 22nd Annual Fishers Island Churches Golf Classic will be held on Sunday, May 20, 2018. The Fishers Island Churches Golf Classic is a golf tournament held for the benefit of the three Island churches. The tournament is supported by the community through donations of time, gifts, tee sponsorships, auction items and tournament proceeds. The money raised from this tournament is split between the three churches.

Golfers come from all over to play in this prestigious event held on the Fishers Island Club golf course. The day’s events include a BBQ before the tournament, 18 holes of golf competition, awards ceremony after the tournament at The Pequot and dinner available for purchase. The final chance to bid on auction items will be held live at The Pequot after the tournament. Proxies for on-line bidders available, see website for more details.

Even if you are not a golfer you can help by:

  1. Buying raffle tickets for our great prizes which include 4 tickets to the Yankees/Red Sox game, Fishers Island Oysters, $200 landscaping gift certificate, Massage by Healing Hands, Flowering tree planted on Island, Fuel gift certificate, Dinner for 4 at the Pequot Inn, plus more.
  2. Going on line at fichurchesclassic.com, clicking on “Go To Online Auction” and bidding on the auction items.
