This is your invitation to the Boca Grande Scramble Golf Tournament scheduled for Monday, Oct. 15, at The Gasparilla Golf Club.
As in past years, this is the major fundraiser for the Boca Grande Chamber Scholarship Fund. Your involvement in this event will be rewarded with breathtaking views of Charlotte Harbor while golfing on this spectacular Pete Dye-designed course, followed with an awards party, featuring culinary delights from Boca Grande's talented chefs and prizes too numerous to mention.
The best reward, however, is the gratification in knowing that you have helped in the academic advancement of so many deserving young men and women.
Every year tournament proceeds are deposited in a separate fund specifically for the purpose of awarding educational scholarships to students with ties to Boca Grande. These are students and parents who live, work, and/or volunteer in the community. This year we will distribute up to $27,000 to more than 42 students who meet the eligibility requirements to receive scholarships.
As a direct result of your tournament participation and/or sponsorship in 2011, the Chamber's Scholarship fund was able to continue the support and commitment to these young adults for another year. Our goal is to exceed that amount in 2012.
Volunteers are needed. Contact the Chamber at 964-0568 for registration or how you can help. Being a part of their history helps us all build a better future.
I look forward to seeing you at the tournament.
Boca Grande Chamber of Commerce
