The Sanibel-Captiva Rotary Club will host the Charity Cup on Feb. 13 beginning at 9 a.m. at the Sanibel Island Golf Club. The golf scramble is being held in lieu of the club’s annual Arts and Crafts Festival, due to concerns of the public’s health during the current pandemic.

The goal is to raise money so the club can continue to support the organizations on and off the islands that it has helped in the past — and to have a day of fun. The tournament will be a four-person scramble format playing best ball. Three sets of “T” boxes will be used.

“We are hosting the Charity Cup in lieu of the Arts & Crafts Festival because we feel that we must be able to support the charities we always have in the past,” event Committee Co-Chairman Bill Rahe said.

Prizes will be awarded for the lowest scoring champions, seniors, ladies, and mixed men’s and women’s teams. Mulligans can be purchased at the event. Skill prizes will also be awarded for ball closest-to-the-pin, longest drive and most accurate drive. There will be a “hole-in-one” tournament with a Yamaha golf cart prize, along with a helicopter ball drop with minimum prizes of $500, $250 and $100 for the three balls nearest the pin. These could be larger depending on the total balls sold.
