The Pavilion Partners, the official volunteer organization of The Center for the Performing Arts at The Woodlands, a nonprofit organization and home of The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, hosts its Third Annual Swing for the Arts Golf Tournament at The Woodlands Country Club’s Palmer Course May 21, 2007.

"We are excited to host the Third Annual Swing for the Arts Golf Tournament at The Woodlands Country Club,” said Bunny Benditz, president of The Pavilion Partners. “This tournament has enabled Partners to raise a great deal of money to support the educational outreach and performing arts programs at The Pavilion, which is the mission of our organization. We hope the move to The Woodlands Country Club enables even more golfers to join us for this uniquely fun tournament in support of the arts."

A team of four in the Swing for the Arts Golf Tournament is $1,000 and includes play for four, plus tee packages, lunch, dinner and beverages. For an individual player, the fee is $250 and includes one tee package, lunch, dinner and beverages. Prizes are awarded for Gross and Net Team Scores and Worst Team Score, which garners the prize of tennis lessons for four. Individual prizes include Closest to the Pin, Longest Drive, Straightest Drive and Hole in One.
