Men That Care
Disc Golf Tournament
Tazewell Woodford Head Start is a federally funded preschool program for low income and under privileged families. We at Head Start believe in including fathers, grandpas, uncles, and positive male role models in our program to help negate some of the negative impacts of the absentee father in the household. Studies show that when the father is missing in the home, the likelihood to drop out of school, teen pregnancy, incarceration, and drug and alcohol abuse (to name a few) increases dramatically.
The Men That Care group will be hosting a disc golf fundraiser this spring to help fund some of our interactive outings. In the past we have taken hundreds of children to Rivermen Hockey matches, Bradley Basketball Games, Peoria Chief Games, fishing trips, etc.

Players Meeting at 9:15 and play begins at 9:30

Paypal may be opened at a later date. 100 players will be the max for tourney so please pre-register.
Lunch: Food will be provided on site for $5 per person between rounds.
Payouts: 50% of the registration fees will go to the Men That Care Group and 50% will be paid out to the top 1/3 of the field. Open division will receive cash and all other divisions will be paid in PFC fun bucks and prizes. Some cash has already been added and this will be added to the Open division payouts.
