Oswego, NY ? Golfers participating in the 24th annual United Way Golf Tournament will once again have the chance to drive away with a brand new vehicle thanks to major sponsorship from Burritt Motors.

?We are so grateful that Burritt Motors has chosen to support our tournament by offering a hole-in-one contest,? said Lexie Wallace, United Way resource development director. ?Not only are they strong partners of the United Way, but the Burritt Motors team seems to constantly be active in the community. We consider ourselves lucky to have them as dedicated neighbors.?

Along with the hole-in-one contest, Wallace said there will be additional on-course games, as well as 50/50 raffles and other prizes.

The United Way Golf Tournament will take place on Monday, July 8, at the Oswego Country Club with tee times at 8 am and 2 pm. Together with Burritt Motors, Wallace said National Grid, Novelis, and Exelon Generation?s Nine Mile Point and FitzPatrick Nuclear Power Plants are returning as major event sponsors.

?This is our largest fundraising event of the year, and it would not be possible without help from these community partners,? said Wallace.

In addition to many returning sponsors and teams, Wallace said there have also been quite a few new community champions stepping up to support the event.

?We are very excited to welcome two teams from Vistra Energy to this year?s tournament,? said Wallace. ?And we have also seen many new hole sponsors, including Canale Insurance & Accounting and Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices CNY Realty. Every sponsorship truly makes a difference, and we are grateful for all of the new and returning supporters we have in the community.?
