About the “Be a HERO” Golf Tournament
The 13th Annual Ensign John R. Elliott “Be a Hero” Golf Tournament, hosted by MediLink Homecare, Inc., will be held Wednesday, May 15th, 2013 at the Sand Barrens Golf Club in Swainton, NJ. Funds raised from the event will benefit the “Hero Campaign for Designated Drivers®,” a program of the John R. Elliott Foundation.
In its first twelve years, the tournament has raised over a half of a million dollars to promote the importance of sober designated drivers. Our community continues to enthusiastically support this wonderful event. We expect this year’s outing to be even better!
In addition to a great day of golf, lunch and dinner, every golfer will receive a HERO black overnight bag. Prizes will be awarded to the top three winning foursomes and to the “High Achievers” (the losing foursome due to the highest score). There are cars as prizes for a hole-in-one on select holes and miscellaneous prizes for closest to pin, longest drive, etc.
