We have lots of awards to give out to our golfers including a free trip to The Masters with a hole in one. This tournament is all about having fun, so we invite all levels of golfers to participate and enjoy the day with us.”

Immediately following the tournament, The Lowcountry Business Network will host a 19th Hole After Party at The Cocktail Club on King Street beginning at 6:00 p.m. featuring a live band, food and a cash bar.  The $10 cover charge per guest will be donated to the Charleston Basket Brigade.  The entire community is welcome.

“Last year we raised $2,950 for the Charleston Basket Brigade. So many local businesses and individuals came out. It was an absolute blast, and we are looking forward to this year’s turnout and raising substantially more,” added Bradley O’Mara, CEO of Armada Real Estate.

Co-founder of the Charleston Basket Brigade, Pam Hartley said, “The Lowcountry Business Network and Armada Real Estate have put forth so much effort to make this year’s event bigger than ever and we are eternally grateful.  As our big kick-off to our fundraising effort for 2012, this event will go a long way to help us reach our goal to feed 18,000 people in need in the Lowcountry this Thanksgiving.”

The meal includes a 10-12 lb. turkey, stuffing, potatoes, gravy, corn, green beans, sweet potatoes with marshmallows, cranberry sauce, a pumpkin pie, fresh rolls and butter.  Each family receives an anonymous letter inside the basket that reads “This comes to you from someone who cares about you.  All we ask is that you take care of yourself well enough to be able to do this for someone else one day.”  The CBB is a 501-(c)(3) nonprofit.
