VDOT Fredericksburg Charity Golf Tournament

The annual VDOT Golf tournament will take place on October 3rd at the Meadows Golf Course in Locust Grove. Each year the members of VDOT Fredericksburg put on a golf tournament to benefit Gwyneth’s Gift Foundation. The 18-hole shotgun start tournament will boast several hole prices, raffles, a steak award dinner, and a whole lotta golf.

Here is a chance to come out and show your stuff on the course while supporting a great cause. This is also a great opportunity to play against other businesses and organizations, all while networking and having some fun.

Gwyneth’s Gift Foundation’s hope is that through our work, we can serve as a catalyst for increasing the survival rate of those suffering from an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest because they received immediately, a world where everyone can save a life.

Proceeds will be used towards training and educating the community on the importance of Hands-Only CPR and the use of an AED.
