Give Big CHQ - June 14

Giv Big CHQ

The Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame is excited to announce that on June 14th, we will be participating in Give Big CHQ! This 24-hour online event, sponsored by the Chautauqua Region Community Foundation, is a great way to get our community excited about giving locally, and an amazing opportunity to raise funds for the CSHOF and 50 other not-for-profits who will be participating.

The CSHOF, currently occupying 4,000 square feet in Downtown Jamestown, has reached an agreement with our landlord to secure an additional 2,000 square feet at no additional cost to the organization. We have a need for additional exhibit space and storage area for our ever-expanding archives, a business office and a meeting room.

A dedicated group of volunteers has just completed the process of patching and painting the walls and replacing damaged ceiling tiles. The next step is to repair the floor and install carpeting.

The cost of the carpet project is $6600. The Board of Directors has committed to $5000 and hopes to raise the remaining $1600 through Give Big CHQ.

Check out our fundraising page.

Please mark June 14th on your calendar and thank you for supporting the Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame and our mission to honor and preserve the sports history of Chautauqua County.

There will be a pre-match lunch at noon; food, snacks and drinks on the course; and a post-match steak dinner. The fee is $300 per team. Price includes carts and all amenities listed above.

Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame inductees Sam Restivo (Class of 2017), left, and Stan Marshaus (Class of 2006) are making preparations for the first CSHOF Scramble Golf Tournament, which will be held June 16 on the Lake Course at Chautauqua Golf Club. Marshaus, the former director of golf at the club and the tournament chairman, has earned many honors during his 35-year career. Among them was the opportunity to play a round of golf with former President Bill Clinton (the two men are seen in framed photograph above) during the latter's stay at Chautauqua Institution in October 1996 in preparation for his debate with Bob Dole prior to the presidential election.
