A relaxing day of golf and fun will benefit patients at UNM Children's Hospital. COSTCO is hosting its Annual Golf Scramble Tournament on May 26 at PAA-KO Ridge. The tournament will begin with a shotgun start at 9 a.m.

COSTCO is a supporter of Children's Miracle Network, an alliance of premier children's hospitals in North America, including UNM Children's Hospital. Each year, COSTCO devotes the month of May to fundraising for the hospital. Donations can be made at both Albuquerque locations.

The proceeds from the golf tournament and the in-store donations will directly benefit UNM Children's Hospital and will be used to buy medical equipment and fund patient programs, such as Child Life, a playroom for patients within UNM Children's Hospital.

The entrance fee of $100 will include green fees, food and drinks. Players can form teams of up to four golfers. Prizes will be given for Long Drive, Closest to Pin, First Place, Second Place and Third Place. The winner of the Hole-in-One contest will win a car. Please sign up by May 14 by calling Ray Ulibarri at 345-9411 or fax 344-0601.
