The celebrity golf tournament’s host committee and local volunteers met with event organizers recently to discuss final details of the event.
“What makes this all come together, is the community working together,” said event organizer Chris Larsen.
Some local promotions are being planned to get the word out about the event. Organizers will be at the Spring into Summer expo at the Digby Arena in June, said Larsen.
“The goal is to have a sold-out golf tournament long before we tee off.”
