Middletown, CA — A charity golf tournament benefitting local nonprofit Hammers for Hope will be held on Friday, October 24, 2014, at the Hidden Valley Lake Golf Course, located at 19120 Hartmann Road in Hidden Valley Lake, north of Middletown.

The tournament will be a four-player scramble format. Cost is $150 per player or $500 per foursome with space limited to 30 teams. Entry fee includes green fees, golf cart, lunch, gifts, dinner, and drinks. A silent auction will be presented. Registration and lunch are at 11:00 a.m. with a shotgun start at noon. The event will celebrate “Halloween on the Green” with golfers, sponsors, and other participants invited to dress up in their spookiest, zaniest, most ridiculous Halloween costume.

The mission of Hammers for Hope is to assist seniors, low-income individuals and families, and people with disabilities in making minor home repairs and necessary accommodations for people with accessibility issues. The goal is to keep homeowners living independently in the safety and comfort of their homes.

While the organization would like to be able to help everyone who needs assistance, services are based on need, funds available, and volunteerism.

“Hammers for Hope relies on local volunteer help, in-kind support, and donations,” said Danielle Matthews Seperas, Hammers for Hope’s vice president and manager of government and community affairs for Calpine Corporation. “The goal with this tournament is to raise money to make our efforts go even further. We want to assist as many people in our community as we can.”

Hammers for Hope partners Kelseyville Lumber and Calpine Corporation are working together to host the golf tournament, which is the organization’s first fundraiser. Several area businesses also have committed to sponsoring the event, including Moore Family Winery, GK Enterprises, Obie Drill & Casing and Hug’s Painting with TNG Energy Services and Southwest Contractors pledging Platinum sponsorships; Team Industrial Services and United Rentals as Gold sponsors; and B & L Casing Services, Clipper Controls, CTI, Mechanical Insulation Supply, MP Environmental Services, SPX Cooling Technologies and many others sponsoring as well.

“Funds raised from this tournament will help us continue our mission of providing charitable assistance to people right here in our community,” said Rob Brown, Hammers for Hope’s president. “Our local businesses have been extremely supportive of our efforts.”
