Los Angeles - Goodwill Southern California's first annual Golf Classic will do much more than test players' skills. Behind the tee-shots is the serious purpose of raising money. Each participating sponsor and/or golfer is helping the more than 15,000 people Goodwill Southern California serves in the counties of Los Angeles (north of Rosecrans, from the ocean to Orange County), San Bernardino and Riverside every year. The day-long Tournament takes place on Monday, September 12th, 2005, starting at 9 a.m. at the North Ranch Country Club in Westlake Village.
100% of the proceeds from the annual event will support Goodwill Southern California's job skill-building education, training, and work experience programs which transform lives through the power of work. Event title and other levels of sponsorships range from $500. to $25,000. and cover foursome entry fee, on-course tee signs, gift bag, program recognition, reception and awards banquet and more. Individual player spots are $475. each with teams now forming. Along with friendly competition on a top-rated golf course, registered players will also enjoy a continental breakfast, golf cart and range balls, tee prizes, a putting contest, Shotgun Start, and an on-course BBQ lunch.
Mark Walberg, TV personality and Goodwill Southern California Board of Governors member, is hosting the Awards Dinner and Live Auction as Master of Ceremonies.
