There are still openings for this year’s most popular golf event, Deck’s Day for Dubbers! All proceeds from the fundraiser benefit the L. Dexter Woodman Scholarship Fund, which has awarded $401,500 in scholarships to 36 local students over the past 17 years.
Deck’s Day for Dubbers, the much anticipated golf tournament, will be held Monday,
June 5th, 2006, at Bass Rocks Golf Course in Gloucester. It was originally set for May 15th, but the inclimate weather caused a postponement. So, lucky for those who missed the sign up the first time around, there are still spots open for the 1:00 PM shotgun start. The entry fee is $200 per person, which includes 18 holes, lunch on the course, prizes, as well as a world famous Woodman’s Clambake Dinner. Make your reservations today by calling 978-768-2559 or 800-649-1773. Don Sudbay, from Sudbay Motors, will again be giving away a FREE CAR as a prize for a hole-in-one (on a specific hole). We thank him for his generosity and encourage you to enter the tournament and try your luck!
The L. Dexter Woodman Scholarship Fund originated in 1988 in memory of L. Dexter Woodman, son of the founder of Woodman’s of Essex and longtime owner of the establishment. Throughout his life, Dexter (‘Deck’) took great joy in serving and supporting the people who lived on and visited his beloved Cape Ann. Proceeds from the Taste of Essex and Deck’s Day for Dubbers are awarded to graduates of the Essex Elementary School and of Manchester-Essex Regional High School. The scholarship fund has expanded its generosity and is now giving scholarships through the Massachusetts Restaurant Association, the North Shore Chamber of Commerce, the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce, and the Essex Lions Club. All scholarships combined total $40,000 to be given out this year!
