76 FOR 76 GOLF TOURNAMENT

SPONSORED BY PANERA BREAD

Proceeds will benefit The Salvation Army's Branson Corp

Springfield, MO (April 23, 2012) Panera Bread and Millwood Golf and Racquet Club are pairing up to host the 76 for 76 Golf Tournament for The Salvation Army's Branson Corps.

     The 4-person scramble will take place on Monday May 21st with registration beginning at 12:30 p.m. followed by a shotgun start at 1:30 p.m.  

     On February 29th, a powerful EF2 tornado tore through the Branson area causing damage throughout the community including at The Salvation Army's Branson Corps. Total damage estimates at the Branson Corps now total approximately $170,000. All proceeds from the tournament will go directly toward helping the Branson Crops recover and allow the Corps to continue to provide assistance to those in need all year long.  

"Panera Bread is proud and committed to giving back to the local communities that support us," Sean Kosar with Panera Bread said. "We're also proud and committed to supporting organizations like The Salvation Army, which helps Ozarks residents in need every single day."

    Registration costs $76 per player or $300 per team and includes the cart rental, range balls and a meal. In addition to Par 3 and putting contests, there will also be prizes given for the longest drive and closest to the pin.
