The Salvation Army of Oswego County is launching a new tradition to support its services for people throughout the county.

The Corps is holding its first annual Red Kettle Classic Golf Tournament on Saturday, September 24, at Battle Island State Park Golf Course 2150 State Route 48, Fulton, NY 13069. Golfers from throughout Oswego County and beyond are invited to register teams for a day of fun and fellowship that will help neighbors in need.

The tournament is scheduled for an 8 a.m. shotgun start. Registration fee includes 18 holes of golf, use of a cart, gift pack, and a chicken dinner. Prizes, raffles, silent auction, and games will also be available. For more information or to register a team, please contact Salvation Army Advisory Board chairman Bruce Holman at (315) 591-0603 or Paul Griser at (609) 675-6219.

Major sponsorships and opportunities for businesses or individuals to sponsor holes are still available. Sponsor names will be publicly displayed with signs on the course and promoted the day of the event.

The Oswego County Salvation Army Corps, responding to ever increasing needs, provides fresh-cooked meals five days each week in both Fulton and Oswego, groceries from its food pantries, winter garments, and many other services to individuals and families in need throughout Oswego County. It also operates a Bridging the Gap program that teaches life skills and gives a second chance to young people that have made poor decisions.
