Emory & Henry Announces Ninth Annual I-HEY Golf Tournament - Friday, May 13

EMORY, Va. - The Emory & Henry College Department of Athletics is pleased to announce the Ninth Annual I-HEY Golf Tournament presented by Branch & Associates, Inc. The tournament will take place on Friday, May 13 and will once again be held at Glenrochie Country Club in Abingdon, Virginia with a shotgun start set for 9:30 a.m.

This annual event is held in appreciation of the loyal contributors to the I-HEY Fund and to raise money for the College's athletics program. All are invited to join us for a day on the links with your Emory & Henry friends.

This year's tournament will feature prizes for winning teams in each of two flights. Blue Ridge Auto Group will sponsor the hole-in-one contest with the top prize being a brand new car. In addition, there will be plenty of contests such as the Bank of Marion 'Closest to the Pin' contest, two 'Longest Drive Contests' sponsored by Hampton Inn and Pop Ellis Soda Shoppe, and two 'Longest Putt Contests' sponsored by B&J Embroidery and Front Row Music. Thanks to all the companies who are sponsoring these contests as they add more excitement to the day!

The registration fee is $125 per person with a 140-person limit to the field. Registration deadline is May 3, 2016, but register early as the event filled last year and some people were turned away. Sponsorship opportunities are also available. Hole sponsorships are available for $250, while Friends of the Tournament sponsorships are $100.

I-HEY is the official fundraising arm of Emory & Henry College's athletic department. For nearly 65 years, alumni and friends have supported athletic programs at E&H by joining I-HEY (I Help Every Year). Contributions, which go directly to the Athletic Department, help teams purchase equipment and pay for travel to and from competition. Gifts earmarked to I-HEY will help young men and women become leaders on the field and court as well as in the classroom.

Call the E&H Department of Athletics at (276) 944-6819 or email Taylor Jefferson at tjefferson@ehc.edu for more information on how to participate or become a sponsor of this year's tournament.
