Lady’s Island Country Club puts a light touch on a serious mission: Toys for Tots

Lady’s Island Country Club members, staff and volunteers are getting ready for Christmas. But it isn’t about themselves  — it’s the 10th annual Toys for Tots Scramble golf event that benefits the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation.
Over the years, the event has raised thousands of dollars, collected acres of toys and brightened hundreds of Christmases.
Registration begins at 10:30 a.m., Saturday, Dec. 10. The shotgun start is at noon and dinner and awards are at 5 p.m. It’s a four-member Captain’s choice format, so everyone can contribute to the round.
Even if you’re not a golfer, please join them for dinner.
Cost for golf is $45 per person, plus an unwrapped toy. (It’s $35 for members.) Dinner alone is $15 plus an unwrapped toy. Hole sponsorships are available, too.
Thanks to residents, members and local businesses, this event is one of the largest fundraisers for the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation.
Call Lady’s Island Country Club at 843-522-9700 for details or “like” us on Facebook.
Lady’s Island Country Club also is a drop-off spot for toys. Toys can be dropped off from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. any day of the week.
Also to celebrate the holidays, the club is having Sunday brunch the following day, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday. The menu will include everything from crab omelets to steak and eggs.
