A golf tournament and chicken and noodle meal are all being planned by different organizations.
A four-man scramble golf tournament is the process of finalization. The date was undetermined as of the press deadline. The Gyp Hill Premiere will post the final details on our FB page and in next week’s “What’s Happening” column. Tee time is 9am. Lunch will be provided. The cost is $200/team. Golf cart rental is very limited according to organizers. To sign up, contact Judd Dohrmann at (620)886-1057.
A raffle will be included the day of the golf tournament. Items that have been donated so far are beef bundles by Wheelock ranch and a Blackstone grill from Charlie Swayze.

Warner has also asked for anyone interested in purchasing scratch tickets for Bieber to show support and encouragement. “Biebs had the best time today working on the scratch tickets we took him, we thought we'd make it a thing,” Warner stated.
