Mark your calendars! Saturday, April 23rd, 2016 is going to be an incredible day. It will be the day of the first ever 18 Fore Life Par-3 Skramble. The event will be held at Beaver Bend Par 3 in Hummelstown, PA, just down the road from Hershey.
This event is going to be a little bit different than your average charity golf tournament. It is going to be a 2-Man scramble event at a pitch n’ putt course. The longest hole is 80 yards. Beaver Bend is one of my favorite places to take friends that are visiting because it is FUN. That is EXACTLY what I want this event to be. Anyone can play, no matter their age, gender or skill level. We are simply getting together to have fun, play some golf and help out some people that could really use it.
There will be food, drinks (yes, beer) & prizes – including raffles and 18 closest-to-the-pin contests. It will only cost $35 per player and all proceeds from the event will go to 18 Fore Life and my sister-in-law, Wendy Wolpert. She is battling breast cancer, and doing it with grace and style that I cannot even imagine possessing at such a challenging time.
Payments can be made to me by check or Paypal, along with registration information. If you have a partner already, please email name and email address for both players to McNally22@gmail.com and let me know how you plan to pay. I will either give you a mailing address, or send you a paypal request. Partners, please, try to pay together.
We are looking for sponsors. There will be 18 hole sponsors at $200 per hole. We are also looking for donations and prize sponsors. This will be a great time to show off some products and promote yourself. I promise, everyone that contributes will surely get some promotion out of it. I will be handling the money for all donations and registration through PayPal. Please contact me if you are interested!
Thank you to 18 Fore Life and Skramble Clothing, not only for helping me bring this to life, but for all of the love and support that you continuously show me. If you don’t know these amazing folks, please click on their links and check them out. This would not be happening without them.
I have no doubt that this event will be just as incredible as I have dreamed it will be. Please come out and play, contribute, and spread the word. I hope to see you there.
If you have any questions, including the best way to get here, or where to stay, just drop me a line at McNally22@gmail.com. I will happily provide any assistance and information that I can.

A message from Herb.
I am asking all of you to help out and be a part of something very special…
Two months from now, on April 23rd, 2016, a dream of mine will have come true. This is all possible because of 18 FORE Life and so many wonderful people that I have met over the years. The inagural ’18 FORE Life Par 3 Skramble’ will be taking place on that day – a golf outing, not quite like any golf outing you have ever known of.
18 FORE Life is a foundation based in Dexter, Missouri. I have beenworking with them for a few years now, and I couldn’t imagine working with a better group of people. They are getting ready to host their 16th annual golf outing this year. All of the money they raise goes directly to people that are battling cancer and their families. The foundation’s mission is to get as many people together as possible to play golf and celebrate the gift of life by helping others in need and raising as much money as possible.
After speaking with them and doing some brainstorming, we decided to bring the 18 FORE Life mission to Central Pennsylvania. On April 23rd, that is exactly what we are going to do. We are going to hold a golf outing. We are going to raise money. And we are going to give ALL OF IT to families in Central PA that are battling cancer. I can’t even begin to explain how honored I feel.
This is going to be a little different than the average charity golf outing, and it is another part of what makes this a dream come true. This tournament is for ANYBODY. It is being help at Beaver Bend Par 3 in Hummelstown, PA. It’s a gorgeous little course, and the longest hole is only 80 yards. You only need 2 clubs – a wedge and a putter. This isn’t about who can hit the longest drive, or the best 150-yard iron shot. It’s about having fun and doing it for a good cause.
One thing I have certainly learned of the years is that there is nothing quite like the golf family. They know how to come together and do what they love to help people out. It’s a great family to be a part of.
So PLEASE, help me out with this. Let’s make this thing something for all of us to rally around. Come play. Contribute. Be a sponsor. Like this. Share this. Tag people who might want to play. Tag people who have been affected and want to contribute. Tag a business that might want to be involved. Come join us, and help us thank 18 FORE Life for coming to Central Pennsylvania.
