The Morris Hospital Auxiliary will host its annual Golf Outing and Bridge/Euchre Tourna-ment on Monday, May 13, at the Morris Country Club.

Guests are invited to golf, play cards, or come for a casual pig roast dinner, with all proceeds benefitting the Morris Hospital LifeLineŽ and Patient Transportation programs.

The day begins with golf registration and lunch served from 11 a.m. to noon. At noon, golfers will head out on the links for 18 holes of golf.  Bridge and Euchre tournaments will begin at 2 p.m. in the clubhouse.

All participants, as well as guests from the community, are invited to a buffet-style pig roast dinner at 5 p.m. The dinner program will include a brief awards reception as well as raffle drawings.

The cost for 18 holes of golf, lunch and hors d’oeuvres is $150 per person or $540 for a foursome. Registration for Bridge and Euchre is $30 per person and includes dinner. Individual tickets for the casual pig roast are also available for $25. A cash bar will also be available.

Sponsorships with varying benefits are available at the following levels: $5,000 “Top Flite,” $2,500 “Eagle,” $1,000 “Driver,” and $500 for a hole sponsorship. U.S. Bank has already claimed a “Top Flite” sponsorship with a lead gift to the event.
