Southwest 8 Golf Tournament - Sept. 24th!

It is not too late to join Southwest 8 Senior Services at our annual golf tournament, The Senior Swing on Friday, September 24th at 11:30am. We will be teeing off at the Council Bluffs Country Club for a four-person Texas scramble. If you don’t have a team to play with, we will place you with some other golfers to make a foursome.

Proceeds from our event will fund unmet needs of seniors needing assistance to remain independent. Examples of what will be funded include the construction of ramps so that seniors can easily come and go from their homes in wheelchairs, visual aids for those afflicted with macular degeneration, affordable respite service for struggling family caregivers of seniors, and to help kick start our two newest programs: Senior Companion and Foster Grandparent Programs.

Lunch will be provided by Hy-Vee, and following play there will be an awards banquet with appetizers, prizes, trophies and fun. We’d like to thank our Platinum Sponsors, Ameristar Casino and Hotel and Modern Woodmen Fraternal Financial for their support and concern for the senior citizens of southwest Iowa.

If you would like to play in the tournament, sponsor a senior golfer, or if you have any questions about the event or to make a donation, please phone Kelly Butts at Southwest 8 Senior Services: 712-328-2540 ext. 13.
