The cost is $100 per golfer which includes green fees, use of a cart, an official tournament golf jacket, a gift bag, a pre-tournament refreshment reception, a light meal during the tournament, and a post-tournament dinner at the course clubhouse. Golfers will also have a chance to win prizes based on their performance in the tournament including a new car courtesy of Matt Burne Honda, Scranton.
Several types of golf and sponsorship packages, which are great advertising vehicles, are also available including hole signs for $100 and sponsorships of $250, $500, $750, and $1,000. There will also be a grand raffle of the Sisters’ famous gift baskets as well as prizes valued at over $100.
