The “Putt for the Putt Putt” takes place at the Tonto Verde Golf Club, 18401 E. El Circulo Drive in Rio Verde on Wednesday, April 17. The cost of the tournament is $75. Attendees will play on an 18-hole putting green. Tournament registration begins at 1:15 p.m., with a shotgun start at 2:15 p.m.

Players will have an opportunity to participate in a Mulligan for Meals contest, and a benefit raffle drawing for a chance to win $5000 in cash prizes. The event is limited to 72 players. Individuals and groups are welcome to play.

A portion of the tournament proceeds will benefit the organization’s numerous programs including medical appointment transportation, van and wheel-chair van transportation, and mobile meal delivery for the elderly.

“Whether you are a serious golfer or just a beginner, this is a fun tournament that welcomes all playing levels. Most importantly, your participation helps to ensure we can provide much-needed programs for our elderly neighbors in the community,” said Debbra Determan, Executive Director of the Foothills Caring Corps.

The Foothills Caring Corps is a nonprofit organization helping older adults and persons with handicapping conditions to remain living independently. Through a force of volunteers the organization delivers services and support that provide access to basic needs such as food, medical care, and to activities that promote physical, mental and emotional health.
