Big Break Greenbrier celeb hosts "Swinging with Sasquatch" Tournament

Big Break Greenbrier Celebrity Isaac "Sasquatch" Sanchez will host the inaugural Swinging with Sasquatch charity golf tournament, Sat. Aug. 10 at Rolling Hills Casino Resort's nationally-ranked Sevillano Links Golf Course.

This team tournament (Scramble format- 1 Pro+ 4 Am's) will benefit Give an Hour, a non-profit organization that provides free mental health services to U.S. military personnel and their families whose lives have been affected by the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The day will kick off with warm-up on the range plus a putting contest, followed by a 10:00 a.m. shotgun start on the award-winning Sevillano Links, former site of the Northern California Open Championship. There are three levels of event participation. The $250 Par level includes: golf, cart, range balls and tee prize plus continental breakfast, box lunch, and a scrumptious dinner buffet in Carlino's at Rolling Hills Casino located just a short-iron away from the course. Birdie level is $500 and includes all-the-above plus $75 of free casino slot play and 1-night (Sat.) on-site lodging. The Eagle level, which is $1000 per player, includes all offerings above and a return Stay & Play Getaway at Sevillano Links.

The tournament will include a raffle drawing plus a silent raffle with plenty of golf-related items including certificates for golf at Sevillano Links and other top Nor Cal courses. During the buffet dinner attendees can expect an inspirational presentation by Mark A. Graham, Major General, U.S. Army (Retired), who is also a board member of Give an Hour. The evening will conclude with an optional slot tournament with proceeds, once again, benefiting Give an Hour.

"We welcome all golfers to participate in our inaugural charity tournament that will be played at a fun resort and on the best maintained course in Northern California," said Tournament Host Isaac "Sasquatch" Sanchez. "A good time will be had by all, and at the very same time we'll raise funds for a worthy cause, one that provides direct benefit to our military personnel and their families."
