Now is the time to hone the golf game.

The Antone Raymus Golf Tournament and Car Show on June 10 will provide participants with a chance at not one but two hole-in-one prizes.

Aram Alexander, CEO and founder of Aram Solar – founded in 1998, he’s one of the pioneers of the solar industry – is making possible the $1 million hole at the four-person scramble event at the Manteca Park Golf Course on June 10.

Eagle’s Nest Harley-Davidson of Lathrop recently stepped up to give golfers a shot at winning a Harley Sportster Iron 883 motorcycle, according to organizer Jim McDonough.

The 13th annual golf tourney and car show is sponsored by the Knights of Columbus and the Manteca Children’s Foundation.

The car show, sponsored by Union Pacific Railroad, Raymus Homes, Ameriprise Financial Inc., and Trinity Associates, to name a few, will take place on the front lawn of the golf course facility at 305 N. Union Rodd.

Proceeds will benefit the Manteca Children’s Foundation by making possible scholarships and programs such as Teens Helping Seniors, Family Fun and Fitness, and Diabetes Education.

The MCF provides assistance to youngsters of all backgrounds in the Manteca / Lathrop area, with the emphasis to help those in disadvantaged circumstances or in need.

Cost to enter the car show – scheduled from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. – is $20 by June 8 or $25 on the day of the show.

The golf tournament honoring the memory of Sadie Cabral will begin at 8 a.m. with a shotgun start.

Cost to register is $100 per golfer or $360 per foursome.

In addition, a special drawing will be held for one-night lodging and two rounds of golf for two players at Stevinson Ranch Golf Course.

The first-place team will earn a foursome play at Diablo Canyon, with second place getting the same deal but at Spring Creek. The third- and fourth- place teams will get a round for four at, respectively, Greenhorn Creek and Creekside or Dryden.

Recognition will also go to those at the designated closest to the hole and the longest drive.
