The 17th Annual Uxbridge Senior Center Golf Outing, sponsored by the Uxbridge Elderly Connection, features what is now clearly one of the best nine holes at one of the top golf courses in Massachusetts. On Sept. 18, the golf outing will be held at Whitinsville Golf Club in Whitinsville starting at noon with a Shotgun Start. The annual fundraiser benefits the programs and activities of the Uxbridge Senior Center.
Teams of four may sign up to play for $100 per golfer for nine holes including cart and buffet supper. Golfers may contact Russ Rosborough at 508-579-5983 or Karen Beane at 508-769-3816. A full sponsor may be purchased for $600 which includes fees for four golfers, carts and supper, plus tee sign with additional acknowledgement in press and print matter.
Special events at the golf outing include two closest to the pin prizes, longest drive, team prizes, individual prizes and more. The number of teams is limited to 14, so golfers should be sure to sign up early. Non-golfers may join in the fun for $30 for buffet only served at approximately 3:30 p.m.
Since its first year, local businesses and community members have supported the event by purchasing a tee sign, making donations, or providing a gift basket or gift item. Silent and live auction items have provided a fun addition. Tee signs, provided by Yyz Signs of Mendon, go for $100 and are a mainstay of this important fundraiser.
Forms for golfers, donors and tee signs can be obtained at the senior center between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. Or contact Russ Rosborough at [email protected]. For tee signs, gifts or donations contact Cathy Thornton at [email protected]. Checks may be mailed to Uxbridge Elderly Connection, Inc, P.O. Box 215, Uxbridge, MA 01569.

The staff of the Uxbridge Senior Center, under the leadership of Director Lisa Bernard, is an integral part of this fundraising effort dealing with much of the behind-the-scenes responsibilities and nice touches enjoyed at the event.
