Pitching in for charity event

IT was a major success last time out with 42 teams participating and Killarney Rotary Club will again join forces with Deerpark Pitch & Putt Club to host a second late night pitch and putt charity event.
In aid of the Kerry Cancer Support Group/Kerry Cork Health Link Bus, the three-person scramble was launched last Wednesday at Killarney Rotary Club's weekly lunch in The Malton Hotel.
It's the second year of the event and this year it takes place on Saturday, September 14, at 8.30pm.
It costs €60 per team of three and all attending will be treated to a barbecue. A fundraising raffle also takes place on the night and there will be a bar at the venue.
Unveiling details of the event last Wednesday were Aidan O'Donoghue of Deerpark Pitch & Putt Club, Killarney Rotary Club President Paul Sherry, Killarney Rotarian James Tarrant and Sean Prendergast and Jay Galvin of the Kerry Cancer Support Group/Kerry Cork Health Link Bus.
The pitch & putt event takes place in full darkness and 'glow in the dark' golf balls are specially imported from America for the event by Killarney Rotary Club.
"We are really looking forward to what is going to be a super fundraiser for a very deserving cause," Killarney Rotary President Paul Sherry stated.
Booking is essential, contact Aidan O'Donoghue on 086-3364705 for further details.
