The 7th Annual Children's Charity Golf Invitational will take place on Sept. 20 at Southern Hills Plantation Club in Spring Hill. The tournament cost is $400 per team or $110 per individual.
Registration and breakfast will begin at 8 a.m. with the tournament at 10 a.m. and a shotgun start. Award presentations and a lunch buffet will follow.
"This year it will help benefit the Spring Hill Children's Bereavement Hospice and First Tee of Brooksville," organizer Richard Sanvanero said. "This is what Kiwanis is all about. There is so much need for us to help out because governments are peeling back social services all the time."
The deadline to register is Sept. 10. To register, visit springhillkiwanis.org.
