The 24th Annual Denver Mills-Tablerock Golf Tournament on Monday, March 18, at Mill Creek Country Club will tee off a busy charity tournament season. The annual event has raised approximately $82,000 since 1996 for Tablerock Festival of Salado, Inc.
This year players will vie for a chance to win a one-year lease of a 2018 Ford EcoSport donated by Johnson Brothers Ford of Temple and $10,000 to be split with Tablerock, said tournament co-chair Letta Meinen. More than 10 teams are expected to play, she added.
Typically, more than 40 Central Texas businesses and individuals support the tournament, said Denver Mills, a Tablerock board member and volunteer as well as tournament namesake. A partial list of this year’s sponsors includes All-American Chevrolet of Killeen; Century 21 Bill Bartlett Realty, McCain’s Bakery & Café, Barrow Brewing Co., all of Salado; Kitchen & Bath REVAMP and Drywall Systems, Inc., both of Belton; Golf Ranch of Georgetown; and Monteith Title Company of Temple, Belton and Killeen.
Sponsorships are $450 for a team/hole combo, $400 for a team of four players, $150 for a company banner, and $100 per hole sponsorship or player entry.
