GOLFERS INVITED TO TEE IT UP AT THE 18TH ANNUAL GOLF OUTING
Pittsburgh, September 3, 2009 — Sponsors and golfers, from beginners to pros, are invited to take part in the 18th Annual La Roche College Golf Outing on Monday,
Sept. 28, at Wildwood Golf Club, Allison Park, Pa. Proceeds raised from this annual event benefit the athletic department and programs at La Roche – and extends beyond that to benefit the entire community. Participants can support the event at numerous levels – with primary, foursome, individual or tee sign sponsorships.
“The La Roche College 18th Annual Golf Outing will be an afternoon of fun and camaraderie with fellow golfers,” said Bobbi Kress LaPlace, director, Special Events, at La Roche College. “Participation supports the college’s entire array of men’s and women’s athletic programs – where students learn the value of teamwork, sacrifice and dedication – principles and lessons that broaden their education and campus life experiences.”
The outing will be played in a scramble format. Registration begins at 10 a.m., with a putting contest at 10:30 a.m. and a shotgun start at 11 a.m. Attendees can enjoy
a round of golf, cookout lunch, and an awards reception with cocktails and hors d’ oeuvres. Prizes will be awarded to the winning teams, as well as to winners in different skills categories such as longest putt and hole-in-one.
Funds garnered are used to maintain and enhance student athletic and sports programs, build infrastructure, purchase needed equipment and supplies, and improve and maintain grounds, fields, and a state-of-the-art, 42,000 square foot gymnasium housing basketball courts, a dance and karate studio, weight room and racquetball courts. Equally important, La Roche College athletic facilities are used by teams, groups and clubs throughout western Pennsylvania.
