Letter: Swing for the seniors

On Oct. 4, Pitkin County seniors and friends will tee off in a special flight of us seniors older than 70, whereas the younger seniors will be participants in an open field of players.

This year, the Mayors’ Cup has been combined with the Pitkin County Senior Services Council Tournament.

Our golf tournament is first and foremost about fun and fitness. However, it’s also our one and only fundraiser each year. This annual event supplements funding for important senior programs, including healthy lunches, home-delivered meals, fitness classes, wellness clinics, Medicare assistance, educational seminars and distribution of the monthly newsletter, The Voice of Experience.

We are asking for your help in ensuring the continued excellence of these wonderful programs for local and visiting older adults.

The tournament entry is $62.50 each or $250 per foursome. This includes green fees, cart, food and swag.

Hole sponsorships may be purchased for $250 and include a sign posted at the hole. Please note that donations in any amount are greatly appreciated. All gifts are tax-deductible.

We hope you will join us in this worthwhile benefit. Please send your donation payable to Senior Services Council, 0275 Castle Creek Road, Aspen, CO 81611.
