Wanted: Sept 6 Golf Tournament Organizers

Listen to this article

Hey Midland! I am looking for a few locals with experience, who can help us organize the first annual Midland Mayor’s golf tournament for Friday September 6th 2024 at the Brooklea Golf and Country Club. With the success of similar events in neighbouring Tay, Tiny and other municipalities, Midland Council’s goal is to raise funds for our community grants program, which donates funds to local charitable and not-for-profit initiatives serving Midland residents each year.

The community grants fund currently comes from tax dollars and Council’s goal during the 2024 budget discussions was to move away from tax funding while still keeping the program viable for 2025 and beyond.

Brooklea Golf and Country Club has offered to host the event and has a checklist of tasks to make the event successful. I am looking for a small group of individuals who have experience planning a one-day golf tournament (max 144 players), finding sponsorships and silent auction prizes and helping with promotion and communications. For both real and perceived conflicts of interest, there are tasks that neither I nor other councillors can do, such as selling sponsorships or solicit donations / prizes. Aside from those tasks, we are ready to pitch in an get this tournament off the ground and need the help of some of the amazing talent we know exists within the Midland community.

Please reach out to me using my contact form.
