HIGHLANDS – The Washer throwing tournament, held every year at Charlie’s Ice House, has become a city-wide mustdo for many District 5890 Rotarians, as well as local folks from the greater Highlands area. Proceeds from this charity event are sent to the national Rotary program Polio Plus, which has almost eliminated this dread disease from the whole world. Highlands Rotarians are able to give one of the highest contributions, per capita, of any club in the world due to this event.

The Public is invited to participate. It will be held Saturday, September 12 from 2pm to 6pm at Charlie’s Ice House, 906 N. Main St. in Highlands. Teams are limited to 50, entry fee is $50, and you must register by 1:30pm. Awards and Prize Money go to the top 3 teams. In addition, there will be a silent auction, live auction, and a Raffle. Prizes in the raffle include two tickets to an Astros game, or a cart full of liquor, or other goodies.

Sponsorships are also available, with your name displayed on boards or teeshirts. Sponsorships vary from $100 to $500. Contact Denise Smith for information, niecy1616@gmail.com.
