The Rotary Club of Martha’s Vineyard and Martha’s Vineyard Community Services (MVCS) announced they will stage the Vineyard Charity Golf Classic in late September to benefit Island charities and MVCS service programs.
The tournament is scheduled for Monday, Sept. 28, at the Vineyard Golf Club, the award-winning course in Edgartown that recently redesigned several of its holes, according to a press release.
For the past 10 years, the Rotary Club has helped stage an annual golf tournament that has raised more than $100,000 for various Island charities and scholarships. This year, Rotary asked MVCS to join the effort, said Rotary board member and golf tournament chairman Delos Lander.
“We believe Rotary and Martha’s Vineyard Community Services will provide an incredible day for golfers that will ultimately benefit a number of worthy programs across the Island,” Mr. Lander said.
“We’re delighted to join with the Rotary Club, which has a long history of service, to raise awareness and funds for so many worthy Island causes,” Victor Capoccia, president of the MVCS board of directors, said.
