Angus breeders and enthusiasts will want to mark July 17, 2012, on their calendars for the 12th Annual Angus Foundation Golf Tournament, which will be hosted at the Quail Chase Golf Club in Louisville, KY. The golf tournament will take place in conjunction with the 2012 National Junior Angus Show.
The Angus Foundation is currently seeking players and sponsors for the tournament. All tournament proceeds will benefit the Angus Foundation’s youth, education and research programs. Angus Foundation President Milford Jenkins says the organization aims to raise $25,000 from the tournament.
“We welcome Angus breeders, youth, as well as our industry friends, to join us by participating in this always fun fundraising activity as a player or as a sponsor,” says Milford Jenkins, Angus Foundation president. “Either way, this outright cash support will play an even more crucial role this post-campaign year in the Angus Foundation’s abilities to sustain the previous funding levels for education, youth and research as we strive together to advance the Angus breed.”
The 2012 event sponsors are Terry Stade Farms, Shakopee, Minn., and Richard Ames, Jordan, Minn. They purchased the event sponsorship at the Angus Foundation fundraising event, “Angus Night on the Mountain,” held at Spruce Mountain Ranch, Larkspur, Colo., in January.
There are eight additional sponsorship levels for individuals, farms and ranches to consider. Each sponsorship level includes various promotional opportunities for the sponsor, which include but are not limited to recognition in the tournament program, post-event news release, Angus Journal® and the Angus Foundation’s website, annual report and newsletter. These sponsor levels include: luncheon, beverage/player cart, club house, hole-in-one, gift, tee box, hole and flag. Sponsorship deadline is June 15.
If you are interested in joining other Angus friends as a player in the tournament, player registration is open until July 1. Adult golfer registration is $100 per player, and National Junior Angus Association (NJAA) member registration is $75 per player. After the July 1 deadline, a $10 late fee per player will apply to the rates.
