ELDORADO -- CASA of Saline County Inc. is preparing for its biggest fundraiser of the year -- its annual golf tournament, that will be held Friday, May 11 at Saline County Golf and Country Club in Eldorado.

"This is our biggest event of the year," said Executive Director Trina Irwin. "We may have a few smaller events, but this is the big one for us."

CASA, which stands for court-appointed special advocates, provides judge-appointed volunteers to represent abused or neglected children in courtroom setting or other appropriate situations.

Saline County Sheriff Keith Brown and State's Attorney Jayson Clark are hosting the tournament, which is the organization's 10th annual golf scramble.

The format is a four-person scramble. Teams have a $300 entry fee, or $75 per individual. There will be a skins game, with an entry fee of $40 per team, or $10 per player.

Irwin said there will be two tee times available, 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. Lunch will be served from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Participants will have the opportunity for several competition prizes, including straightest drive, closest to the pin, and longest putt.

Sponsorships are available. Corporate sponsorships are $1,000 and $500. There are also sponsorships for individuals at $250, $200, $100 and $50.
