The Golf Committee responsible for planning the 14th Annual PSWR Golf Classic, better known as the Don Shelton Memorial Golf Classic, held its first meeting this year on March 19th. The initial task, as always, is recruiting sponsors. Letters to sponsors from prior years went out by April 1.
Our list of Sponsor Options for this year’s event includes these categories.
- Platinum -- $10,000, one sponsorship, includes two foursomes
- Gold -- $5,000, one sponsorship, includes one foursome
- Silver -- $2,500, multiple sponsorships, includes one twosome
- Prize Packages -- $1,000 to $2,000
We’ve never had a Platinum, Gold of Silver Sponsor, so we’d love to have someone, or some business, step up to any one of these levels this year. If these levels are too high for you personally, or for your congregation, there are many other levels of sponsorships, including these categories.
- Tee/Foursome Package -- $1,000, multiple sponsors
- Hole Sponsor -- $500, multiple sponsors
- Putting Contest Sponsor - $500
- Hole-in-One Package -- $500, one sponsor
- Driving Range Sponsor -- $250, one sponsor
- GPS Scoreboard in Carts -- $100, one sponsor
- Prize Sponsor -- Any amount from $25 up to $500, multiple sponsors
With the help of our sponsors, last year’s golf tournament raised $20,000 which generated gifts in the amount of $3,333.33 for each of the six participating ministries (All Peoples Community Center, Disciples Seminary Foundation, DOC Students Program, Chapman University, Eastmont Community Center, Project IMPACT and the Camp and Conference Scholarship Fund of the PSW Regional Church). We hope to make 2018’s event even more successful.
The registration brochures have been mailed out to past golfers and to each congregation in the region. If you would like to participate in a fun event that raises much needed funds for 6 great causes, sign up. If you have not played in the past, but would like to join us, please send an e-mail to email@example.com, and I will mail you a registration form.
Contests & Opportunity Drawing
We have planned a lot of contests on the course, and we will have ‘buy your drive’ back this year. In addition, for the test drive this year, the driver will be a Callaway X series 416 adjustable. Don’t miss your chance to hit this driver, and maybe win it! We will also have the hole-in-one contest again this year. You really don’t want to miss it!
The opportunity drawing this year will have prizes of 1) season tickets to the Pantages theater, 2) Tickets to Rose Bowl parade 3) I-pad. The prize for the Don Shelton scholarship drawing is a 5 day/4 night cruise on your choice of 1 of 4 cruise lines (port fees and taxes not included, sorry!) If your church would like to help out by selling these, please contact Donna Woodbridge at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will be happy to send you some.
If you are interested in learning more about being a sponsor, either as an individual, or in the name of your congregation or business, please contact Tournament Chair Pat Vannoy at 714-496-6347.
