Chilirhea Swag Classic golf tourney to benefit Alzheimers organizations

The folks behind one of the largest local Alzheimers fundraisers of the year have entered the charity golf tourney business.

Chilihrea, the annual chili cookoff with a kinda gross sounding name that raised over $80,000 at their 2016 event, will host their second ever Chilirhea Swag Classic at Stonebridge Meadows this fall on Oct. 14.

The event includes a four man scramble tournament as well as a long drive competition, putting contest, and closest-to-the-hole prize.

Teams of four can sign up for $400, and hole sponsorships are available for $100. Proceeds from the event benefit Alzheimer’s Arkansas and UAMS Reynolds Institute on Aging.

The fun begins with lunch at 11:30 a.m., followed by a shotgun start to the tourney at 1 p.m.

Sign up is open through Sept. 28. For more information or to register, email [email protected]
