Pittsfield - The Berkshire County Red Cross will be holding its Fifteenth Annual Red Cross Golf Classic at the Country Club of Pittsfield on Monday, August 27, 2007.

The event includes an 18 hole scramble format, many contests and activities including a Hole-In-One, putting contests, raffles, gifts, lunch, dinner and much more.

A special feature of this year’s event is a live auction featuring Red Sox tickets and a signed David Ortiz Nokona Wrecking Crew Game Bat.

This year’s event will also host two demonstrations with PGA professional and world renowned trick shot artist Ben Witter. One demonstration will take place at noon and the second will be at 6 p.m..

Ben Witter had a remarkable collegiate career where he was three-time NCAA All American and two-time NCAA Long Drive Champion. He followed up his collegiate career by turning professional and playing on mini- tours and the PGA qualifying tour pursuing his dream of playing on the tour. However after being diagnosed with cancer in 1988 his dream was cut short.

He has since become one of the most highly sought after trick shot artists in the world. He has also turned to teaching the game of golf and has taught thousands and continues to teach his unique philosophy to many. All monies raised from this event are used to fund the local programs and services of the Berkshire County Red Cross. Golfers who wish to participate or for more information contact Kathleen Phillips at 413-442-1506 ext.11. Space is limited.

For more information on sponsorship please contact Gina Isenhart at 413-442-1506 Ext. 13.
