The proceeds from this year’s tournament will go to Mount Desert Island Search and Rescue. Formed in 1982, MDI Search and Rescue is an all volunteer, non-profit service organization, providing search and rescue assistance on Mount Desert Island and surrounding communities. MDI SAR team members respond to callouts by Acadia National Park, the Maine Warden Service, and local police and fire departments. Team capabilities include ground searches for missing persons, emergency wilderness medicine, and technical rope rescue. They assist with 20-25 missions annually. Their 30+/- member volunteers put in roughly 10 times as much time training as they do performing searches or rescues. MDI SAR’s annual budget pays for member training and rescue equipment like ropes, carabineers, webbing, rescue litter, etc. For more information, you can visit their website at www.mdisar.org.
Bar Harbor Bank & Trust invites the community to help raise funds for Mount Desert Island Search and Rescue by participating in the tournament as a sponsor, golfer, or donor. Those who have already made a commitment to this year’s tourney include hole-in-one sponsors, Stanley Subaru and Darling’s Chevrolet. Golf tournament planning committee members will be contacting individuals and businesses for their sponsorship support of this annual charity tournament.
