Yarger Memorial Golf Scramble ends with a flourish

A local charity golf tournament that started with a conversation between cousins at a 1996 family reunion will finally come to a close this weekend as the Yarger and Kay families pull off their 20th and final Yarger Memorial Golf Scramble this Saturday.

Heading into the weekend, the total raised stands at over $187,000, so organizers are confident they will surpass the $200,000 mark when it’s all said and done.

It was very important to the families that the tournament finish strong, and $200,000 is a pretty good way to go out, said cofounder Bill Yarger of Hall.

“Let’s finish with a flourish,” agreed cousin Brady Kay, a Canandaigua native now living in Massachusetts.
