The Wayne District Masons will host a golf tournament to support area charities including Ronald McDonald Charities, Masonic Medical Research Institute and other local organizations at the Ontario Country Club, 2101 Country Club Lane.
The Marshall Francis Memorial Golf Tournament is the first of many yearly tournaments in honor of an individual who had a tournament each year to benefit his favorite charity, Ronald McDonald Charities. As a Brother Mason, the Wayne District Masons will host this tournament every year to carry on his charitable legacy.
Tee time for the tournament is 1 p.m. on Aug. 4. A buffet dinner and auction will be held in the clubhouse after the tournament. Reception will be at 5:30 p.m.; dinner at 6:30 p.m. with an auction of items donated for the charities afterward.
Cost of the tournament — teams of four will be made — at a donation of $100 per player includes green fees, golf cart and a ticket to the dinner after. Additional dinner tickets are also offered at $50 per person.
Ronald McDonald Charities is an organization which helps keep families together and near the medical care they need through a network of local chapters.
The Masonic Medical Research Institute is an internationally recognized biomedical research institute founded by the Grand Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons in New York State in 1958. This institute is an international center for genetic screening of inherited cardiac arrhythmia diseases, especially those responsible for sudden infant cardiac death syndrome and is actively involved in the development of safe effective drugs for atrial fibrillation, thus addressing one of the unmet medical needs facing the society.
Sponsors, and auction donations are welcome.
