Meals on Wheels of Lewes and Rehoboth has a busy September planned for weekend golfers and local pros alike, all in support of the organizations's mission of providing nutritious meals for homebound neighbors in eastern Sussex County.

The golf professionals of Rehoboth Beach Country Club and Kings Creek Country Club will play as many holes as possible in a fundraising Golf Marathon from 4 to 7 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 10, at Rehoboth Beach Country Club. The pros are asking community members for donations on a pledge-per-hole basis. All money raised will stay in the Lewes-Rehoboth area.

The premier event of the month is the 37th Annual Harry Derrickson Memorial Golf Tournament, Dinner and Auction Sunday and Monday, Sept. 21 and 22, at Rehoboth Beach Country Club.

The pre-tournament dinner from 5 to 8 p.m., Sept. 21 includes appetizers, a grand buffet, open bar, entertainment and live and silent auctions.  Price is $85 per person.

The main event, Monday's golf tournament, begins with registration at 11:30 a.m. and a shotgun start at 12:30 p.m. Price is $195 for single players and $725 for a foursome. The annual event is a principal fundraiser for the Meals on Wheels program.
