SUMMIT COUNTY Summit Fire Authority will hold its sixth annual golf tournament at the Keystone Ranch Golf Course on June 13 to benefit the Summit County Mountain Mentors. The Mountain Mentors Program works to provide local kids ages 6 to 16 with responsible adult mentors who act as positive role models, and more importantly, friends. We were very excited to hear that the Fire Authority chose us as their benefit organization, said Sarah Provino, Mountain Mentors Coordinator. All the money raised will go towards our scholarship program which allocates $200 for kids to explore extra curricular activities.According to Provino, Mountain Mentors has been able to match over 60 local kids with mentors, and there currently 24 kids waiting to get paired up with a mentor. We couldnt be more excited to golf, have fun and help out a great group of local kids. Does it get any better? said Tournament Director and Battalion Chief Paul Kuhn of Red, White & Blue Fire Protection District. Check-in for the tournament is scheduled for 9 a.m. and tee-off will take place shortly after. In addition to gift bags, door prizes, food and photos for participants, the tournament will feature prizes for Longest Drive, Closest to Pin, Longest Putt and, if anyone gets lucky enough, Hole in One. Early registration fee is $95 per entry, and $105 per entry after May 16 or on the day of the tournament.
