The event will take place on Monday, Aug. 7, which represents a change from previous tournaments, previously held in September. Registration is underway online. Teams of four will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. In the event of rain, the Golf Classic will be held on Monday, Sept. 18.
This year, and in following years, the event will be known as the Gerard Miller Children First Golf Tournament, to honor Gerard Miller, a founding member of the Alumni Golf Committee and an original Alumni Board member at the Club.
This past sunny Saturday, 10 teams were preparing to play at Stamford Valley Golf Course in the 8th annual Drury High School Alumni Golf Tournament.
The annual tourney grew out of a class reunion nearly a decade ago that has since raised thousands of dollars to help the North Adams, Mass., high school.
The event is sponsored by the Drury class of 1973, said Nancy Bullett, a founder and organizer, and includes alumni from 1965 to 1978.
All proceeds from the event will support individuals with developmental disabilities, brain injuries and autism, as well as individuals with other disabilities ages 16 and above through Berkshire County Arc's Adult Family Care Program.
