The fourth annual Bob Rasor Memorial Golf Classic will be played Aug. 24 at noon at Bull's Bridge Golf Club in South Kent.

Proceeds from the tournament benefit MVP-SOS (www.mvpsos.com), a volunteer, non-profit organization supporting New Milford's youth in academic and athletic programs.

The event is named for Bob Rasor, a founding member of MVP-SOS, who believed, along with his fellow charter members, in the value of extracurricular activities via mentorship and guidance.

Last year's event helped to fund student endeavors at both Schaghticoke Middle School and New Milford High School.

Tournament host Shayne Newman of YardApes, Inc. said, among others, the following sponsorships "reflect the highlights of MVP-SOS's efforts"--20 SMS students sent on Orlando, Washington, DC and Boston Adventure trips; four NMHS band members sent to Orlando; NMHS cheerleader sent to London to compete in an international cheer event; seven Eliot Pratt Nature Center scholarships, and the funding of NMHS Film Club equipment.

Registration forms can be downloaded from YardApes' website at www.yardapes.org.

Golf day registration and lunch will start at 11 a.m. Dinner at the Bull's Bridge Inn will follow the round at 6 p.m.
