For dedicated and die-hard golfers, playing the Pebble Beach® golf course would be a dream come true.
For one lucky Corporate Sponsor of the 24th Annual San Juan College Foundation Golf Scramble that dream will become a reality. The golf tournament will be held September 13-14 at Pinon Hills Golf Course. At the tournament’s dinner on the 14th, which will be at the San Juan Country Club, a ticket will be drawn and the winner will receive two rounds of golf at Pebble Beach®, two nights lodging at the Pebble Beach Resorts ®, and airfare.
In addition, two players in the tournament will receive two rounds of golf each at the Glacier Club Golf Course, north of Durango.
While the prizes are certain to attract area golfers, the real winners of the tournament will be San Juan College students, who will receive 100 percent of the tournament proceeds in the form of scholarships.
Gayle Dean is the executive director of the San Juan College Foundation and is, as always, excited about the tournament and how it benefits college students. “We’re proud of this tournament,” Dean said. “It’s a top notch event and people are always eager to participate – especially knowing that the money raised goes directly into the hands of the students.”
The San Juan College Foundation has provided almost $5 million to San Juan College students in the form of scholarships – an achievement Dean and the San Juan College Foundation Board of Directors are justifiably proud of.
Wells Fargo and Aztec Well Servicing are major sponsors of the tournament. There are several levels of sponsorship. A Corporate Sponsorship is $1500, which includes two days of golf for a four-player team, the Corporate Sponsor dinner on Friday evening, recognition in the program, and advertising of their business name on the Corporate Sponsor sign. For those who prefer to not golf, but want to participate in the fundraising and dinner, there are options available including an Activity Sponsorship ($500); and Hole Sponsorship ($200). Signage is also available for these sponsors.
Individuals may participate in the tournament for $250 per person. The fee includes dinner for the golfer and a guest, in addition to the opportunity to win great door prizes.
