Please join us on Monday, September 10TH, 2018 for some great fun at the Ridge Club; one of the Cape’s most beautiful and picturesque golf courses!

The golf tournament is a shotgun scramble beginning at noon (sharp!), with a great lunch and dinner. There will be a raffle and a live auction, mixed in with lots of fabulous games and prizes! We recommend you come at 11am to register and be ready for the noon start.
