14TH WOMEN’S CHARITY GOLF TOURNEY MAY 19
Eagle Creek Golf Course in Indianapolis, Ind. will again host the Women’s Charity Golf Tournament on Tuesday, May 19, benefiting the USAC Benevolent Foundation, which assists USAC and Indy Racing League participants.
The 14th Annual event honors the generosity of the late Mary Fendrich Hulman and is part of the celebration of 100 Years of activity at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, which opened in 1909.
Marie Hall, owner of ETC. by Wham Bam, a Speedway, Ind. racing collectibles shop and widow of former Indy 500 veteran driver and car owner Norm Hall, is the Chairperson for the event. Debbie Paulsen will serve as the Honorary Chairperson. Her grandfather owned midgets and “big cars” in the 1930s, 1940s and early 1950s and she has developed a true appreciation for the sport of auto racing. Her husband, Chris, owns and operates C & R Racing, which manufactures and markets radiators and other products for racing teams.
The main goals of the tourney are to assist a worthwhile charity dedicated to auto racing families and to give women a day of fun, relaxation and friendship during the “month-of-May” Indianapolis 500 season.
Registration begins at 7:30 am, including a continental breakfast for participants. A putting contest and raffle are also planned. The format is a nine-hole scramble from 8:30 to noon, followed by a catered lunch in the golf course dining room, compliments of the Olive Garden Restaurant.
Awards will be presented to the top three teams and for the Katie Oxley Longest Drive, sponsored by the Tony Stewart Foundation, and the closest-to-the-pin, sponsored by the Indianapolis 500 Oldtimers Club. The tournament is sponsored by The Oxley Financial Advisory Group of Raymond James & Associates.
