New Pig Corp., NPC Inc. and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society will present the 18th annual Anne E. Barnes Memorial Golf Tournament on Sept. 6 at Iron Masters Country Club in Roaring Spring.

There will be morning and afternoon sessions.

A rain date is scheduled for Oct. 4.

A devoted wife and mother of three children, Anne lost her struggle with MS in the summer of 2001. In spite of the difficult times, Anne kept her faith, her happy demeanor and selfless attitude. Her constant smile was contagious and her positive outlook on life was an inspiration to her family and to all who knew her. An ardent supporter of the Multiple Sclerosis Society, her natural grace and personal integrity were with her until the end.

“We invite the public to participate in Central Pennsylvania’s ‘Golf Outing of the Year’ and challenge you to help raise money to end the devastating effects of multiple sclerosis,” said Anthea L. Germano, communications volunteer for the MS Society’s Pennsylvania Keystone Chapter Duncansville office.

“Proceeds raised from the tournament will be used not only for medical research and education but also for direct patient and family services for those affected by multiple sclerosis,” Germano said.

There is a $125 per golfer donation with a four-person scramble format. The donation entitles each person to 18 holes of golf, cart, refreshments and breakfast provided by Iron Masters Country Club. Lunch is a Holland Brothers Pig Roast and Delgrosso’s meatball sandwiches. Dinner will follow the event prepared by the clubhouse at Iron Masters. Each participant will receive a golf hat compliments of NPC Inc. and golf balls and tees compliments of Ketrow Travel and Ketrow Insurance.

Gift certificates will be given to the first-, second- and third-place winners (men and women teams). There will be a $50 cash prize for being closest to the pin (three holes), also to the man and woman with the longest drive.

The hole-in-one prize features a car donated by Stuckey Subaru on the ninth hole. Josh Albright took home a new Subaru in 2016.

The deadline for registration is Aug. 31, and it is on a first-come, first-served basis.

Tee and green sponsorships are available for $100, and there are various sponsorship levels available for corporate teams.
