Not many people enjoy going back to work on a Monday after the weekend. Playing golf sounds like a better option, doesn't it? Then make plans now to be a part of the ninth annual Western Nevada Community College/Greater Nevada Credit Union Golf Classic at Thunder Canyon Golf & Country Club in Washoe Valley on Monday, Aug. 7. Proceeds benefit special projects at the college.
"This event is usually a sellout with more than 200 golfers and volunteers taking part," WNCC Vice President Helaine Jesse said. "We appreciate everyone who helps out."
The fun will start on Sunday, Aug. 6, with a kickoff party at Casino Fandango from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Complimentary beer and wine, hors d'oeuvres, door prizes, live music, and chances to win free golf rounds and an 18-month pass will be offered.
On Monday, golfers will tee off at 9 a.m. in a four-person, scramble format. Participants will enjoy a continental breakfast, tee prizes, on-course refreshments, and an awards ceremony, hosted by KRNV TV Sports Director Bryan Samudio, and barbecue following the tournament. Hole-in-one prizes will include cars and a Sea-Doo, courtesy of Michael's Cycle Works and the Dick Campagni Automotive Group.
Sponsorship opportunities are available that will include featuring the organization's name in the event program, banners at the events sponsored, and event announcements and promotional materials. Donations are also being sought, including raffle items and door prizes.
The entry fee is $800 for business teams, and $150 for individual golfers. Business team sponsors will be featured in the program and announcements at the kickoff party and awards barbecue, and will receive a tee sign and eight tickets to the party. Individual players will receive two tickets to the kickoff party.
To sign up, sponsor, or donate, call the WNCC Foundation office at 775-445-3240.
