The El Hasa Shriners club has scheduled its annual golf tournament fundraiser.

The event is set for 9 a.m. June 9 at Portsmouth Elks Country Club, Roger Morgan, with the group, said.

Proceeds from the event will go to the transportation fund for members to take children to Shriners Children’s Hospitals in Cincinnati and Lexington, Kentucky.

Morgan said the cost to compete is $60 per person and that groups can sponsor a hole in the tournament for $100. He said those interested can contact him at 740-532-8333.
