The event begins at 10 a.m. and will raise money and non-perishable food items for the Brandon Food Pantry. Disc golfers of all levels and ages are encouraged to play, and there will be open, advanced, intermediate and recreational divisions to participate in. Cost is $20 and at least two non-perishable food items, and prizes will be awarded in each division. Each player will receive a tournament disc. Call 553-3298 for information.
