Lions to Hold 12th Annual Golf Tournament


The 12th Annual Leonard B. Donohoe Memorial Golf Tournament will be held at the Shawnee Golf & Country Club July 8, 2011. Registration is at 8:00 a.m. and Tee off is at 9:00 a.m. The tournament was started in memory of Leonard “Len” Donohoe, a long time Milford residents and Milford Lions Club member.

Lion Len joined the Milford Lions Club in January 1953, and was very active throughout his 45 years as a Lion. He held every office in our club and several District level offices. Lion Len was a tireless leader in the area of sight preservation.

Each year many local individuals and businesses donate door prizes or sponsor a hole for the Leonard B. Donohoe Memorial Golf Tournament. These individuals and businesses are listed in local newspapers and in the Lions Club information brochure for the next year’s tournament.

The entry fee is $70/person, each player will receive a goody bag and a door prize (estimated value $25). The entry fee includes a round of golf with cart, 2 Mulligans, Putting Contest (3 chances), refreshments on the course, Continental breakfast (coffee, bagels, donuts and juice) and hot dogs and hamburgers for lunch. Folks from The Home of the Brave donate their time and grill to cook the lunch. Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place low net, closest to pin, and straightest drive.

This is a fundraiser for the Milford Lions Club. The money earned is used to fight sight related diseases and to provide eye exams and glasses for needy local residents and school children. The Lions Club thanks all the individuals and businesses who have supported them in the past and hope to count on them again this year.
