Service Club Invitational Golf Tournament

 Local schools are facing tough times, but the Downtown Lion's Club is hoping they can lend a hand.

The organization is hosting its first invitational golf tournament at Hart Ranch next Friday in order to help contribute to area schools. Each team participating in the tournament is made up of four players – at least one of those golfers must be affiliated with a Black Hills service club. The money raised will support several new student scholarships for Central, Stevens and Rapid City High School.

"It's important for the reason of supporting things that we already support. We already give a thousand dollars to Young Leaders. We'd like to have it be three-thousand – it's a really good program. The early start program is the same thing, we give a thousand dollars, we want to build on that," explained President of Downtown Lions Club, Ron Bunnell.

Schools aren't the only winners – the team that wins the tournament will see prize money go towards their service club.
