FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – The Alexander City Sports Foundation (ACSF) and Central Alabama Community College (CACC) will host their second annual Golf Tournament fundraiser Wednesday, March 20 at Willow Point Country Club.
The format of the tournament will be a 4-person scramble including sponsored holes from tournament participants, with costs per team being $1,000.
Prizes for the top four finishing teams include Cleveland Golf Equipment, along with a tee package for every player and bonus prizes available for everyone in attendance.
Once the golfing rounds are completed, tournament participants will be welcomed to enjoy complimentary food, beverages and prizes on behalf of the ACSF and CACC.
The first annual ACSF/CACC Golf Tournament in 2012 raised over $20,000 that was evenly distributed to both the ACSF and CACC.
With the funds, the ACSF contributed to gym repair, golf team costs, baseball tournament costs, and a football sideline mat for Benjamin Russell High School.
Funds from the 2012 tournament will also go towards scholarships for one boy and one girl from the ACSF that will be decided at a later point this year.
Also receiving monetary help from the ACSF from funds acquired from the 2012 Golf
Tournament was Alex City AAU Basketball, Alex City Gymnastics, Alex City Youth Wrestling, Alex City Youth Football and the Alex City Football/Cheer Banquet.
From the 2012 tournament, CACC was able to present athletes with athletic scholarships, as well as help with textbook costs over the course of the 2012 athletic seasons.
Funds raised from the tournament have contributed significantly to scholarship and facility maintenance over the course of the past athletic season at Central Alabama Community College.
All checks for the tournament can be made out to “Alexander City Sports Foundation” and will be 100% tax deductible.
Anyone interested in sponsoring and/or being a part of the event can reach ACSF Communications Director J.D. Cowart at jd.cowart@alexcityoutlook.com or ACSF board member Mark Worthy at mark@sacssoftware.com for tournament entry forms and details.
