It's almost time for GOLF!?!

It's getting warmer, the sun is finally showing and the days are getting shorter until people will be out enjoying the golf courses again! Now why am I so excited about golf? I don't even play! I am excited because this year I've been given the opportunity to work with my high school Alma mater to raise money for the school's athletic program through the 1st annual West Greene Golf Classic.  We're hosting an event in conjunction with Link Hills Golf Course in Greeneville, TN to raise money to help the students involved in sports at the school. Money raised will fund new facilities for the teams, equipment needs and scholarships for outstanding seniors. I know I loved being involved in sports during high school. It really gave me a way to put the theory of what I learned about leadership into practice. Plus, it helped me make some of my best friends, find mentors, build relationships, learn to cope with adversity, kept me busy, off the couch, and I had fun!
If you or someone you know might be interested in putting a team together, check out all of the information below. We can only take about 20 teams and spots will fill up quickly. Of course, if you are interested in sponsorship, those option are listed as well. I can't wait to raise some money for a great cause and contribute to the success of students athletes at West Greene High School!

On June 3, 2011, the West Greene Booster Club and student athletes and Link Hills Country Club are partnering to host the 1st Annual West Greene Golf Classic to support West Greene High School athletics.  In this inaugural event we hope to raise funds to support the student athletes that compete not only on the fields and courts but in the classroom as well.
This year’s event promises to be successful and exciting. We have an afternoon flight with four-person scramble teams teeing off at the 18-hole championship golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones. This event will feature wonderful gifts for each participant, amazing prizes for the special event winners, and grand prizes for the top team, a delicious lunch and a great opportunity to support local student athletes.
Because of the support of sponsors like you and the hard work of the volunteer staff this event is destined to be a success. I challenge you to help this year’s inaugural events set the bar high for coming year fundraising teams and their efforts. Student athletes in our community look to us to set the example of sportsmanship, hard work and service. Please join us in helping these students achieve success through this joint effort.
Sponsorships and teams will fill up quickly. Please make your reservations soon.
Sincerely,
