112 Golfers participated in the 6th Annual Agents of Hope Scramble Golf Tournament, hosted by ERA Team VP Real Estate & Vacation Rentals, to benefit the ALS Association and the ALS Division of MDA this past August at the Chautauqua Golf Club. The event, held every year on the last Wednesday of August, raised a total of $9,000.
Along with sponsorship opportunities there were many ways for the golfers to help raise money the day of the tournament. Featured on-course events included a Mojito Bar, Jell-O shot hole, betting hole, Arnold Palmer/John Daily Bar, Corn-Hole contest, and a prize wheel. Following the event, ERA hosted a steak dinner catered by Andriaccios, and included announcement of the tournament winners, a 50/50 drawing, and a raffle of over 65 items and gift certificates donated by local businesses.
“We’re delighted to host this friendly competition every year in order to show our company’s and our community’s true cooperation in supporting the efforts of the ALS Association and the ALS Division of MDA. Both organizations lead the fight to cure and treat ALS through global cutting-edge research, and empower people with Lou Gehrig ’s disease and their families to live fuller lives by providing them with compassionate care and support,” said Bill Soffel, Broker/Owner of ERA Team VP.
