EGUSD 10th Annual Golf Tournament for college scholarships now accepting registrations
June 2, 2010
The Elk Grove Unified School District will host its 10th Annual Golf Tournament on Saturday, August 7 at Bing Maloney Golf Course in Sacramento. The golf event is the main fundraiser for the districtís college scholarship fund and has successfully raised over $130,000 to date.
The college fund was created by EGUSD employees to support students pursuing post-secondary education. Because of the continued success of the golf tournament, EGUSD employees have been able to award over 130 $1,000 scholarships to EGUSD graduates and fund a $10,000 Golden 50 Endowed Scholarship in honor of the districtís 50th Anniversary.
The tournament offers participants 18 holes of golf (including golf cart), lunch, prizes for the winning team, and menís and womenís longest drive, accuracy and hole-in-one contests. Participants also can take part in a putting contest with EGUSD Superintendent Steven M. Ladd, Ed.D.
The cost is $95 per player with $20 going directly to the scholarship fund. Registration starts at 7 a.m. and the tournament begins with a shotgun start at 8 a.m. at Bing Maloney Golf Course (6801 Freeport Blvd., Sacramento, CA 95822).
