Local golfer Sue Pippin puts this way: “What lady doesn’t like a fashion show?” Soon, Springfield will have one. Even better, it will benefit the charities among the Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper.

The PCCC is accepting reservations for the Michele Kiser Women’s Golf Clinic, Luncheon and Fashion Show, an event sponsored by Advertising Plus and named in honor of the founder of Advertising Plus who passed away on January 1, 2015.

This year’s event offers a favorable date – Monday, August 1 – and is one of the first events of the PCCC, part of the PGA’s Web.com Tour and a major fundraiser for local children’s charities.

The entry fee is affordable. It’s only $30 per person, or $250 for a table of 10. To reserve your ticket, call the PCCC at 417-887-3400.

In fact, the clinic is one of two major women’s-related events tied to the PCCC, as the Betty Allison’s Pro-Am is scheduled on Tuesday, August 9 at Millwood Golf and Racquet Club. One of the highlights of the fashion show will be the drawing for four playing spots in the Betty Allison’s Pro-Am, the only women’s pro-am on the PGA’s Web.com Tour.

“This is such a fun event each year,” said Sharyn Wagoner, Tournament Chair. “It is a great way to spend a few hours with friends, get some great golf instruction while supporting 40-plus children’s charities of the Price Cutter Charity Championship.”

Designs from Uptown Boutique and Academy Sports will be modeled during the salad luncheon. Many ladies also attend for the 90-minute golf clinic, supervised by Brian Maloney, the Director of Golf at Highland Springs Country Club who also brings in area teaching professionals. The ratio of instructors to golfers is 1 to 10.

“I like how they give you options of what you want to work on,” Pippin said. “If you have trouble with your short game or whatever area of your game, there is a pro waiting to help you.”
