2009 Golf Classic Raises Funds for Santee Schools

Carlton Oaks Country Club

On Wednesday, June 24, Carlton Oaks Country Club was the site of the 6th Annual Golf Classic to support the Santee School District Foundation.  Some 100 golfers signed up to play and raise money to help support technology and the arts in Santee Schools.  In addition to the players, some three dozen companies and organizations signed on to sponsor the event.  All money raised from entry fees, sponsorships, raffles, and the silent auction go toward a $40,000 pledge the Foundation has made to help the School District reach its technology goals.

This year’s turnout was slightly lower than last year’s, due in part to a combination of the economy and multiple local tournaments in May.  But the lower numbers didn’t mean any less fun and enthusiasm among players, Foundation members, and other volunteers.  An extra “atta-boy” goes to Thomas Hootman, of Simply Spa, who stepped in to cover for Chamber Executive Director Warren Savage, who had to attend the Las Colinas hearing downtown that same morning.  Simply Spa also provided chair massages for golfers who had perhaps strained an oblique teeing off on the 18th hole.

Another sponsor, North Island Credit Union, provided carne asada tacos to help keep players going until the big dinner.  They were also popular with the volunteers.

None of this could have happened without the efforts of the Santee School District Foundation.  A hearty congratulations to the Foundation and its volunteers.

6th Annual Golf Classic

Calling all golfers, or anyone who just likes to “putter” around.  The Santee School District Foundation and the Santee Chamber of Commerce are presenting the 6th Annual Golf Classic to raise funds for the Santee Schools on Wednesday, June 24.  Money from the Classic is used to provide additional funding for the district to help support the visual and performing arts and technology.

The day kicks off with registration and lunch starting at 11:00 am, followed by a shotgun start at 1:00 pm.  After the round ends, a no-host bar and reception starts at 5:00 pm, with banquet and awards ceremony beginning at 6:00 pm.  Along with the banquet there will be prizes and live and silent auctions, all to help the schools.

You can sign up to take part in the classic as a player, a sponsor, or a donor for the auctions – or all of the above.  Sign up starts at $100 for the round and dinner, and $30 for any additional dinner guests.  You can also get a VIP package for an additional $25.  If you are interested you can help sponsor the Classic at levels from Gold Business Sponsor at $100 on up.  The deadline for sponsorship is June 10 and the player deadline is June 17.
