Soroptimist International of Carson City seeks golfers, tee or green sponsors, and raffle prize donations for their 11th annual Stroke to Help Golf Tournament. The tournament is Saturday, September 29, at Eagle Valley Golf Course. Golfers may choose to play either the duffer-friendly East Course or the challenging links-style West Course. Play on both courses will be a 9 a.m. Shotgun start, with a Scramble format. Cost is $85 per player, and includes a Continental Breakfast, greens fee and cart, tee prizes, and a Barbecue lunch afterwards. A raffle, separate contests, games, and prizes add to the fun. Players may sign up individually, or as a team of four. Deadline is September 21.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. This tournament is the area kick-off for the local Think Pink campaign, raising money to provide annual mammograms, plus subsequent biopsies as needed, for local un- and under-insured women. Carson Tahoe Regional Healthcare and Tahoe Carson Radiology, in addition to serving as Tournament Sponsors, also discount their fees for the program run through local clinic and physician referrals. Non-golfers wishing to help fight breast cancer may sponsor a tee or a green for $150, or donate a prize for the raffle. Additional Sponsorship packages are also available. And cash donations are always welcome, too.
Additional funds raised may be used for other Soroptimist programs benefiting the local community, such as the Legal Fund - providing legal aid for the past 25 years for Carson area victims of domestic violence, or for the club's numerous scholarships - awarded to local women and girls seeking to improve their lives through higher education. New for this year's tournament is a partnership with the American Society of Civil Engineers, Nevada Capital Branch. ASCE is raising funds for a new scholarship, administered by Carson City Soroptimist, awarded to local women working towards an Engineering degree.
