Today is International Women’s Day – a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women – and this year is the launch date of the inaugural Red Tee Tournament.
This women's golf event will be held on Monday, June 12 at Berkshire Hills Country Club in Pittsfield. Proceeds from the tournament will be divided evenly between Berkshire United Way and Elizabeth Freeman Center.
“The Red Tee will be the first tournament of its kind in the region. I’m thrilled Berkshire United Way is part of the inaugural tournament,” said Berkshire United Way President and CEO Tom Bernard. “We are inspired to be officially launching it alongside Elizabeth Freeman Center on International Women’s Day and especially honored to be able to direct the proceeds toward programs with a focus on women and girls.”
“We are excited to be teaming up and teeing off with the Red Tee Tournament and Berkshire United Way for what promises to be a fun and uplifting event. We are truly thankful for everyone’s support,” echoed Janis Broderick, Executive Director of Elizabeth Freeman Center.
This all-woman golf tournament will feature up to 27 teams playing in a scramble format and a post golf networking event, open to the public. The tournament will start with a shotgun start at 9:30am. The post-tournament reception will be 4-6 p.m. and is included in the $150 player registration fee. For non-players, $50 tickets for the networking social hour will be sold separately.
