Shurfine Golf Tournament to Benefit Four Charities 

A golf tournament to benefit four local charities is teeing off tomorrow in Vassalboro.It’s the 13th Annual Shurfine Food Stores Charity Golf Classic. It’ll be held at Natanis Golf Course.The money raised will benefit the two Ronald McDonald Houses in Maine, the Make a Wish Foundation, and the Maine National Guard Foundation Fund.Dina Casey of the Bangor Ronald McDonald House says the funds are badly needed. “It’s a great day to be outside, but what’s important that these funds are going to four different non-profit organizations and in these tough economic times, it’s really important that people continue to support the organizations and this is one way to help out.”The folks from Shurfine Food Stores say they expect to raise $30,000 dollars this year for the charities, and over the 13 years they’ve sponsored the golf tournament, $850,000 have been raised for charity.
