The Kiwanis Club of Hoover Metro is teeing up for its 24th annual Crest Cadillac Charity Golf Classic.
This year’s tournament is in memory of longtime Kiwanis member Dave Broderick, who died in 2015 after a longtime battle with cancer. Broderick also chaired the golf classic for more than 20 years.
“We will have an easel where we’re registering all of our golfers, and we’ll make a big poster in memory of Dave,” said Deb O’Hara, chair of this year’s golf tournament.
The April 11 tournament will benefit SafeHouse of Shelby County, Camp Smile-A-Mile, Adaptive Aquatics, Hope for Autumn Foundation, Restoration Academy and two state university scholarships. Multiple donor and sponsorship levels are available, including individual sponsorships for $180 and four-person team sponsorships for $700.
O’Hara said people do not have to be great at golf to participate or enjoy the tournament, and there are several non-golfing ways to contribute through donations or sponsorships. They began accepting sponsorships and donations in February, O’Hara said, and will continue up to the day of the tournament.
“We’re really shooting very high this year,” she said. “We’re trying to double what we did last year, so there’s no deadline other than that April 11 deadline.”
Sponsorships include a round of 18 holes including green fees and cart fees, a gift bag, lunch, drinks during the tournament and eligibility for tournament prizes. The tournament’s “Hole in One” prize is the use of a Cadillac for two years.
