by Denise Marie

LAS VEGAS – The Las Vegas Chapter of Speedway Children’s Charities will host the 17th annual Drive for Charity Golf Tournament presented by Insomniac on Monday, May 13, 2019, to raise funds for a great cause.

The event will take place at Bear’s Best Las Vegas, a one-of-a-kind Jack Nicklaus-designed course, and Speedway Children’s Charities’ Las Vegas Chapter will receive all proceeds from the tournament. The tournament’s presenting sponsor is Insomniac Events, creators of the Electric Daisy Carnival that will take place at Las Vegas Motor Speedway May 17-19.

Nicklaus selected 18 holes from his more than 200 course designs worldwide and put them into one extraordinary round of golf at Bear’s Best. Located in the upscale, exclusive Ridge neighborhood of the master-planned community of Summerlin, Bear’s Best is a high-end, daily fee public course focused on providing the best possible Las Vegas golf experience.

The entry fee is $1,000 per foursome or $250 for individuals, and players will receive a round of golf, golf cart use, unlimited range balls, continental breakfast, awards lunch, gifts and goodie bags. Complimentary chair massages from Spa Costa Del Sur at the South Point Hotel Casino and Spa and a ball drop, courtesy of Big Valley Towing, are just part of the extras that will be available to participants.

Registration begins at 7 a.m., followed by a shotgun start at 8 a.m., and the tournament features a scramble format. Players will be asked to provide their handicap index when registering.

“This is one of our biggest fundraisers of the year, and Bear’s Best is a wonderful facility,” SCC Las Vegas Chapter Director Paulette Anderson said. “Not only do our participants get the chance to play one of the city’s top golf courses, but they are helping raise money for thousands of Southern Nevada children in need. It’s going to be a great day of fun and fellowship, and I encourage people to put a team together and be a part of it all!”

The tournament also will include a raffle, with prizes ranging from golf foursomes to spa packages and NASCAR tickets, as well as a live auction and various product samples set up around the course. Other event sponsors include LVMS and Las Vegas Sports Network’s ESPN Las Vegas.

The event helps SCC support children in need in Southern Nevada, and the charity donated more than $260,000 to 60 different charities in 2018. To register, contact Paulette Anderson at 702.632.8242 or log on to the SCC Las Vegas website for more information.
