Stuart, FL (PRWEB) December 13, 2004
Million Dollar Hole-In-OneÂ®Âs Annual Tournament was held in Las Vegas at the renowned Revere at Anthem Concord Golf Course on December 6, 2004. The field included an international group of men and women from as far away as Finland, Spain and the UK. The skies were sunny and all enjoyed the scenic mountain, valley and city news.
The insurance underwriters sighed in relief, when one golfer was within inches of scoring an ace at the Âmillion dollarÂ 165 yard par three 5th hole on the Concord Course. He did win the closest to the pin contest where the ArnieÂs Army Battles Prostate Cancer Contest was held.
This was the first time the Million Dollar Hole-In-OneÂ® Annual Tournament offered the ArnieÂs Army Battles Prostate Cancer Contest. Under the leadership of Million Dollar Hole-In-OneÂ®Âs two leading franchise owners and Wilson Sporting Goods, one hundred percent of the field contributed. Glyn Evans, who heads our Western European franchise, reminded all in attendance of the seriousness of the disease as measured by the statistic that one in six males in the US would contract prostate cancer.
Gene Rebhan, a Million Dollar Hole-In-OneÂ® founder, was the master of ceremonies at the Tournament Awards Dinner. It was held at MGM MirageÂs Treasure Island Hotel. ItÂs steps away from the Venetian, the Wynn, the Mirage and Fashion Show Mall. Gene indicated Âhe didnÂt know which offered the contestants and attending spouses and guests more enjoyment, the world class golf, gaming, entertainment (including the national rodeo championship) or dining. He did note there were rumors that the most frequently purchased item was additional luggage to bring home holiday presents bought for friends and relatives. There was no question that the attendees enjoyed all that Las Vegas had to offerÂ.
