Shooting to draw an even bigger and broader audience of participants to its iconic annual fundraising event, KMC, the industry leading, value-added distributor of MI, Band & Orchestra, and Pro Audio products, today announced that the 31st annual 2018 JAM U.S. Music Group EPU Charity Golf Tournament will take place on Monday, September 10, 2018 in Avon, Connecticut at the Blue Fox Run Golf Course — the same great course where the event has been held for the last several years.
“The 2018 tournament is being moved to September 10th in order to accommodate a large number of potential participants who have always wanted to play but could not due to the double crush of the InfoComm and Summer NAMM shows,” event Committee Chairperson Roger Hart said today. “And the weather is always better in early September!”
According to Hart, the 2018 tournament will, for the first time, also involve all of the divisions that comprise the JAM U.S. Music Group — KMC Music, KMC Pro Audio, Davitt & Hanser, U.S. Music Corp., and Marshall USA. “The addition of these sister divisions and their business associates promises to make the 2018 event the biggest and most successful one yet!”
Last year the tournament raised over $19,000 dollars, bringing the total amount raised to date to over $200,000.00. “We hope everyone will join us for the 2018 event and enjoy some camaraderie and golf during a splendid time of year in New England. It’s all for a very noteworthy cause.”
Hart called upon manufacturers and dealers to help the cause by making a donation to the raffle prize selection and/or sponsoring a hole or a beverage cart or some other event to be determined. Platinum Level Sponsorships, which include a hole sponsorship with corporate signage, mention in print materials, four rounds of golf (including carts), lunch, cocktail reception and dinner can be purchased for $1250. Gold Level Sponsorships include all the benefits of the silver level and two rounds of golf for $625. Individual Golfers can play for $150 and still enjoy the lunch, cocktail reception, and dinner. The Beverage Cart Sponsorship can be purchased for $1500 and that includes corporate signage on the cart, mention in print materials, and four rounds of golf, including carts, lunch, cocktail reception and dinner.
The daylong event kicks off at 10:00AM on September 10th with a putting green contest. A box lunch will be provided to each golfer before teeing off at 11:00AM in a shotgun scramble format outing. Over the course of the day golfers will participate in the Hole in One Contest (trip for two to Key West, Florida and two sets of irons), the Longest Drive, Closest to the Pin, Par 3 Hit the Green in One, and Putting Contests. The cocktail reception will follow from 4:00PM to 5:00PM, with dinner, prize raffles, and a charity auction to follow in the evening.
Participants can book a room at the Avon Old Farms Inn ($124 per night with attendee code 14374) by visiting www.avonoldfarmshotel.com or calling (860) 677-1651.
