Benefit event returns with Patriotic theme
HIGHLANDS – Rotarians are practicing their washer throwing techniques in preparation for the upcoming 14th Annual 3-Hole Washer Board Charity Tournament, to be held next Saturday, September 11th at Charlie’s Ice House. Charlie’s is at 906 N. Main Street in Highlands, and the tournament starts at 1:00 pm sharp, lasting until about 5:00 p.m.
This year the proceeds from the charity event will benefit Polio worldwide, in a Rotary program known as Polio Plus.
This event has become a city-wide tradition, with two-person teams coming from various clubs around the Rotary 5890 District, as well as local Highlands folks, to compete for bragging rights and the three top positions in the double elimination tournament. Teams are also expected from North Shore and Baytown clubs. The public is invited to field a team, also. You are welcome to come and watch if you don’t play, and there will be refreshments, and live and silent auctions.
It is expected that about 50 teams will compete in the tournament. Entry fee is $50 per team.
To enter a team, please come to Charlie’s prior to 12:30 pm on Saturday. For more info, contact Denise Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org, or Patricia Scott at email@example.com.
