Sent 2020-01-18: GNGT Gift Baskets - 

The Good Neighbor Golf Tournament (GNGT) is a 35-year tradition of Sunshine Estates Country Club.

There are many prizes and awards during the Good Neighbor Golf Tournament banquet on Saturday. A few years ago residents started a tradition of preparing gift baskets as great prizes during the banquet.These baskets have been prepared in the past with the donor’s hometown in mind and with new items valued between $30 and $50. We hope both residents and non-residents will continue this donation practice.The baskets do not, however, need to be from your hometown region. To lessen your costs, you might want to consider creating a basket together with friends or neighbors.We would also be grateful for separate gift certificates or items that we could assemble into joint baskets.

Janis McFee and Eileen Anderson have taken on the mission of receiving and storing gift basket donations for the GNGT. If you and or your neighbors would like to prepare and or share in preparing a gift basket, we encourage you to do so by providing them to Janis McFee and / or Eileen Anderson prior to the scheduled event dates.

Based on history, the recipients of these unique gift basket prizes welcome this approach and truly appreciate everyone's generosity.
