JACKSON, KY – (Oct. 1, 2007) – The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Department of Highways District 10 office will sponsor a golf scramble on Friday, Oct. 12 at Sugar Camp Golf Club in Breathitt County. Proceeds will benefit the Kentucky Employees Charitable Campaign (KECC).


The fee is $40 per person, with an additional $5 for each mulligan or skirt with a limit of two each per player. The format of play will be a four-person team scramble. Players may bring their own teams or be assigned to a team according to handicap. Prizes will be awarded for first and second place, along with longest drive and closest to the pin. Lunch will be provided.

KECC, formed in 1993, is comprised of six partner charities: Christian Appalachian Project, Community Health Charities, Easter Seals Kentucky, Prevent Child Abuse Kentucky, United Ways in Kentucky, and WHAS Crusade for Children. The six partner charities cover more than 1,000 agencies, programs and services all across the Commonwealth, representing almost every aspect of health and human services. KECC is supported and planned each year by state employees, the participating charities and the Personnel Cabinet. Thanks to the generosity of state employees last year, the campaign raised over $1.37 million last year to help those in need.
