Looking for Golfers for a Charity Golf Fundraiser

Many of you know me for my work with the Creakers and 4 years as treasurer of the Walnut Creek Senior Club.  For the past year I have been working to help launch a new non-profit organization for seniors, called The Walnut Creek Village.

Walnut Creek Village is one of a group of 190 established and 140 forming Villages throughout the country. Our purpose is to help seniors stay in their own homes as long as possible. We will provide volunteers to assist with driving, gardening, pet sitting, and other small tasks that become harder to handle as we age. We also provide referrals to professionals for hire to do more substantial jobs or tasks that require licensing or other certifications.  Rather than a physical location where people live, a Village is a dynamic association of people helping one another to age in place.

Walnut Creek Village is still in the development stage, with an opening date of May 1, 2017.  We are fundraising now in order to establish an office and employ a full time staffer.  Please help our fund raising effort and have a lot of fun by joining us in our FIRST ANNUAL CHARITY GOLF EVENT on September 14, 2016 at Boundary Oak Golf Course, Walnut Creek!!! Nothing is better than the fun of golf, coupled with a great community cause. We will have lots of contests and prizes as well as a box lunch and a buffet supper. Come join us in the morning to warm up on the putting green and driving range, then get your game on at this beautiful course high in the hills overlooking Walnut Creek. Bring your friends and make your own fab foursome, or let us pair you with other golfers so you meet new people in the community. Enjoy such contests as Longest Drive, Closest to the Pin or Poker Golf .After the game, pick up your prizes at the Awards Banquet at the clubhouse.

If you’re not a golfer — no worries! Come and buy a ticket to the Banquet, compete for raffle prizes and bid on fabulous auction items like gift baskets, wine and sports memorabilia!

We’re also currently looking for sponsors, donor goods and services — as well as volunteers for the tournament day. Please contact us at WalnutCreekVilage@gmail.com, or call us 925-956-1990 and a Golf Committee Member will get back to you with more information. You can also register to play on our website

Boundary Oak Golf Course, 3800 Valley Vista Road, Walnut Creek 94598

Please visit our website for further info and to register for the event on line.  Our website is http://www.WalnutCreekVillage.org.  If you have any further questions, you can reach me at bobmohler@earthlink.net.
