Planning is in full swing for the 24th Annual United Way Golf Tournament, set for Monday, July 8 at the Oswego Country Club.

The event will be organized the same as previous years, with four-person teams following the captain and crew format for tee times at 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. Both flights will have access to meals on arrival and snacks throughout the course, and all golfers will receive a full dinner prepared by the Country Club after their rounds.

?We are also pleased to welcome back Eagle Beverage as an event sponsor,? said Lexie Wallace, United Way resource development director. ?Thanks to their generous beverage donation, along with sponsorship from Pepsi Co., none of our golfers will go thirsty.?

Wallace said the United Way is also receiving continued support from Major Sponsors Exelon Generation, National Grid, Novelis, and Burritt Motors.

?We are lucky to have so many sponsors and golf teams step up year after year to continue participating in this tournament,? said Wallace. ?We rely on the community?s support to make this day a success and raise funds to support our 20 partner agencies that meet the changing needs of our county.?

Along with longstanding partnerships, Wallace said the United Way has also received support from several new groups.

?We are happy to have IBEW Local 43 joining us with a Corporate Team for the first time this year, and we have also had multiple new groups step up to sponsor hole signs, including Cayuga Community College, Lydall Performance Materials, and Housing Visions,? said Wallace. ?It is very encouraging to see such a broad range of businesses give what they can to support our mission and help create a brighter future for our community.?
