Last year, the Chuck Diesel Invitational golf tournament at West Seattle Golf Course raised more than $7,000 for The First Tee of Greater Seattle and its youth health/wellness/junior-golf programs. Consider this your invitation to be part of it this year, coming up this Saturday. The announcement we received explains that “this year’s tournament theme is a tribute to classic Seattle sports: Think Gary Payton, Chip Hanauer, Fred Couples, Steve Raible, Steve Largent, Brian Bosworth, the Kingdome!” More than a dozen local businesses have chipped in with money and/or prizes for the tournament, which we’re told “started out with six friends trying to raise money for a good cause” and included more than 70 golfers last year:
Founder Charlie “Diesel” Anderson has set himself up for a large goal in 2014, by attempting to raise over $10,000. Hoping to keep the game as fun as possible, Diesel and the event staff have been working to add some exciting new activations around the course to keep the participants on their toes, and hopefully walking home with a trophy or two. Not a golfer? There will also be a silent auction during the tournament, as well as a raffle. Come out, join the fun, and support a worthwhile cause.
Since there’s still room/time to do that, here’s how: Register at golfcdi.com, where you’ll find five different registration options, all including greens fees to play in the tournament, plus a golf cart, and dinner. If you just want to donate, you can do that online by going here.
