Kiwanis Club of Tyrone schedules fifth annual Dick Dutrow Memorial Golf Tournament May 14

The Kiwanis Club of Tyrone has scheduled its fifth annual Dick Dutrow Memorial Golf Tournament for Friday, May 14, with a shotgun start of 11 a.m., at the Sinking Valley Country Club.
Prizes, trophies, refreshments and a buffet dinner are included, along with a chance to win a new car for a hole-in-one.
Tyrone Kiwanis has been busy the last several months making plans for its fifth annual tournament, and Tyrone Kiwanis member Pete Dutrow, one of Dick’s sons, will once again chair the annual event.
“In the next several weeks, we will be sending out sponsorship letters and urging business, industry and individuals to start thinking about taking part in the tournament,” said Dutrow.
“We are urging area golfers to take part, either with a foursome or individually. We will put teams together if necessary.”
The golf tournament is held to raise funds for the Kiwanis Club’s various service projects throughout the year, most of which center on the Kiwanis International theme of “Service Children of the World.”
Most of the Tyrone Kiwanis funds are used to support local projects such as smoke detectors for newborns, support of various area athletic teams, Special Olympics, Tyrone YMCA, Tyrone Salvation Army and Tyrone School District’s ‘Terrific Kids’, Builders Club and Key Club programs.
Also, the Tyrone Kiwanis Club provides scholarships to area students annually.
Members of Tyrone Kiwanis also spend countless hours involved in the community, volunteering at Epworth Manor, the Tyrone Area Food Bank, the Tyrone Salvation Army, and the Tyrone YMCA, just to name a few.
Through the Pennsylvania District Kiwanis, the local club provides support for orphanages in Jamaica and Bulgaria as well.
“This golf tournament quickly became an important part of our Kiwanis year, not only because our generous sponsors and golfers provided much needed funds for our annual budget, but also because it gave all the golfers and Kiwanians a wonderful day of golf and fellowship,” said Dutrow.
For more information on the golf tournament, contact any Tyrone Kiwanis member.
