Coastal Community Association and South Gulf County Volunteer Fire Department are joining forces to raise donations for Easter Baskets and food for needy families in Gulf County for Easter for the Gulf County Sheriff’s Department.  They have engaged the services of the wildest March hares they could find in Gulf County to kick off the drive with a crazy Bunny Rabbit Tournament to be held 1 p.m. ET Saturday, March 15 at St. Joseph Bay Golf Club.

These demented hares choose to hold the tournament on St Patrick’s Day just to spice things up and encourages all our golfing snow birds to join the locals for a day of golfing fun.  The March hares want to meet all the birds who are visiting Gulf County. 

The game will be individual play with handicaps so anyone can win.  There will be cash prizes for first, second and third place.  There is a prize on every hole and fun with every stroke.  Hole prizes have been donated by Sunset Coastal Grill, The St. Joe Shrimp Company, St. Joseph Bay Golf Club, the Blue Parrot and Smiley’s Car Detailing among others.  Sponsors are Penelope’s Pet Stop, Gulf 2 Bay Construction and Coastal Community Association.  Cost is $45 for club members and $55 for non-members.   Bring an Easter Basket or Easter stuffed toy and take $10 off.  All proceeds will go for Easter Baskets and food. 

Call St. Joseph Bay Golf Club at 227-1751 for more information or to register.  If you don’t have a team, no problem, the club will hook you up with some fun folks.

Don’t play golf.  No problem.  Coastal Community Association and South Gulf County Volunteer Fire Department (both nonprofits) have arranged with Dollar General Market in Port St. Joe to have a discount on food and Easter items from donations they collect just before Easter.  So we can multiply what we can make available for the needy in Gulf County with even a small donation.

 You can make donations or drop off Easter Baskets, Easter stuffed animals and nonperishable food items at the South Gulf County Volunteer Fire Department on Cape San Blas Road, St Joseph Bay Golf Club, Sunset Coastal Grill, or Gulf 2 Bay Construction (Simmons Bayou). 

You can make a difference. Thanks.
