The Rotary Clubs of Bladensburg and Bowie-Crofton are joining forces to sponsor an Indoor Golf Tournament to fight off the gloom on Feb. 26. This is a charity gala for pros and duffers alike to benefit children with disabilities and injuries.

The evening includes an open bar, buffet and miniature golf. Sponsors will give away trophies and door prizes, including Capitals and Bullets tickets, meals at local restaurants, golf merchandise and autographed books by such authors as Art Buchwald, Dave Barry, Gary Larson and Gary Trudeau.

The proceeds of the tournament will go to two charitable projects. One is Opportunity Park, a Bowie playground accessible to children with disabilities. The other recipient is a foundation that supports the work of Dr. Thomas Koury, a prominent Maryland surgeon. Twice a year he donates his skills and those of his staff to perform reconstructive facial and hand surgery for disadvantaged children in Ecuador.
