Golf Tournament to Raise Funds for Speech Therapy Clinic Scholarships

September 20, 2017

MISSOULA – The annual Dolly Steward Memorial Golf Tournament will take place Sunday, Oct. 1, at the King Ranch Golf Course in Frenchtown. The event is a fundraiser for the DeWit RiteCare Speech, Language, and Hearing Clinic at the University of Montana.

The clinic serves people of all ages who have communication challenges or disorders. Thanks to the generosity of the Western Montana Scottish Rite Foundation, clinic scholarships are available to clients in need of financial assistance. The annual golf tournament raises funds that go directly to providing those scholarships.

The Oct. 1 events will begin at 8 a.m. with a breakfast at King Ranch. Individuals and teams will begin playing golf at 10 a.m. There will be team prizes and hole prizes, and a dinner after the tournament.

Entry costs $50 per player or $200 for teams of four. Sponsorships are available for businesses. Masonic affiliation is not required for participation in the tournament. For more information or to sign up for the tournament, call Harlan Ockler at 406-626-4392 or Marv Clover at 406-626-4000.
