There will be a clubhouse party immediately following the tournament with complimentary wine, appetizers and—new this year—a light dinner buffet.
“The clubhouse party will feature exceptional musical entertainment by our first Arizona Musicfest Scholarship recipient, pianist Karen Nguyen,” said event co-chair Mary Goldthwaite. “There will be prizes for the low gross, individual and foursome; a limited voice auction of wonderful items; and the famous ‘Wine Tower’ for party guests to take a chance on winning special wines.”
Also taking place at the April 26 event will be the Arizona Musicfest “Big Apple Raffle” featuring a “New York Entertainment Package” grand prize valued at $4,000 with four nights of luxury hotel accommodations, airport limousine service, plus airfare and entertainment stipends. Second prize is two premium season passes to Arizona Musicfest 2015, a total value of $1,300. Third prize is a Sedona-based “Enchantment Resort Package” with a total value of $1,200.
Tickets for the "Big Apple Raffle" are available at the putting tournament and at the Arizona Musicfest office.
Registration is $100 per person for golf and the party or $50 for the party only. The registration fee includes two mulligans plus entry into the "Hole in One Challenge" with the winner splitting a $1,000 pot with Arizona Musicfest.
