One Last chance for Legends golf tournament slots

This weekend's 2011 Pacific University Legends Golf Classic, hosted by the KISS lead guitarist and Pacific University trustee Tommy Thayer, is sold out, but there's still a chance for local golfers to hit the links with some celebrities.

A total of six playing spots for Monday's tournament are being auctioned off this week by News Radio 1190 KEX and 105.9 The Brew, with proceeds benefiting Pacific athletics. For more information on the auction, please visit www.1190kex.com or www.1059thebrew.com.

In addition, supporters can also participate in the tournament at Aloha's Reserve Vineyards and Golf Club by purchasing a chance in a golf ball drop. For just $20 per ball, you could have a chance to win at least half of the money raised from golf ball sales up to $2,500. The golf ball drop takes places on Mon., Aug. 1, and you need not be present to win.
