BROKEN BOW – The Annual D.A.R.E. Golf Tournament tees off on Saturday, June 18th at 10 AM at the Broken Bow Golf Club, carrying on a fundraising tradition that has supported the nationwide Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) program in Custer County for more than a quarter-century.
The tournament, championed by the Broken Bow Police Department, raises money to fund the D.A.R.E. program not only for sixth graders in Broken Bow, but for those throughout Custer County by way of the Sherriff’s Department. According to Captain Dan Hanson of the Broken Bow Police, the golf tournament “supplies them with the funds to buy the material needed to do the D.A.R.E. program,” which includes teaching kids how “to make wise decisions about drugs and alcohol as they’re growing up,” as well as developing “the tools they can use to resist using those items.”
The fifty-dollar per person registration fee includes green fees, lunch, and Mulligans, as well as a shot at door and flag prizes. Julie Toline assures those wary of their drive, chip, or putt that due to generous donations from the community, “no golfer will go home empty-handed.”
Early registration is encouraged; entrants must call the police department’s non-emergency line at (308) 872-6424 to register their four-person team, and the Broken Bow Golf Club to reserve a cart, (308) 872-6444.
