Every May on the Island, golfers have enjoyed playing golf at the Big Club in the annual Fishers Island Three Churches Golf Tournament. It has always been a wonderful day of socializing, getting exercise and eating. Truly, a great time is had by all and for a good cause.
The mission of this fundraiser is to generate funds for the long-term growth and success of the Fishers Island churches. We couldn’t fulfill our vital mission without our wonderful sponsors and volunteers!
This summer the committee presented checks for $10,500.00 to the Fishers Island Union Chapel, St. John’s Episcopal Church and Our Lady of Grace Church.
This year the committee is hoping to recruit more volunteers for the committee and the “BIG DAY”. The committee will be getting an early start – the first meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, January 17, 2017. Meeting details and agenda will follow.
In addition to coordinating the golf tournament, committee responsibilities include getting prizes for the players and for the raffle from local businesses, getting signage for tee and greens, getting on-line auction items, sending out invitations and thank you notes, making sure transportation has been arranged for the off-island guests, coordinating and manning the noontime barbecue and later, the prize award ceremony dinner.
