Committee Announces 2016 Auction, Dinner, Golf and Basketball Tournament Dates

The committee for the Coach Baker Fund is pleased to announce this year’s date for the ninth annual auction, Golf Scramble and basketball tournament.  This year’s weekend will be June 17th and 18th at the historic Hoosick Falls Country Club in Hoosick Falls, NY.

 

The annual weekend of organized events includes a golf tournament, a basketball tournament, an auction and a dinner.  The weekend was established in memory of the late coach Ken Baker of Hoosick Falls and Cambridge who passed away in 2008.  For almost a decade now a committee of friends and family have come together to organize a packed weekend in order to raise funds.  These funds go towards scholarships of deserving students from both the Cambridge and Hoosick Falls school districts, as well as programs in both communities to focus on health, civic responsibility and leadership.  Last year the committee gave out two, $2,000 scholarships to deserving students in both school districts.

 

Starting on Friday night of the weekend, family, friends, past students, athletes, scholarship recipients and both communities come together with a live auction and dinner starting at 6pm at the Hoosick Falls Golf Course.  Community members are invited and can purchase tickets at the door.  The 2016 scholarship applicants will be announced before the live silent auction, which starts at 8pm.  As with every year, the silent auction dinner is entertained by live auctioneer Ron Seifert and will have items large and small to bid on to raise funds.

 

The Weekend continues on Saturday with 3-on-3-basketball tournament at the Cambridge Central School. To sign up for the basketball tournament please contact Andy Nolan or by going to the website.  The two tee times for the Golf tournament are 8am and 1pm at the Hoosick Falls Country Club. To create a team and enter the golf tournament please contact Mike Baratto at mpb416@gmail.com.
