Hit the Greens During the Angus Foundation Golf Tournament
The tournament scheduled July 14 during the NJAS supports education, youth and research.
Angus golfers and sponsors take note – the Angus Foundation’s 15th annual golf tournament will take place Tuesday, July 14, at the Forest Ridge Golf Club in Broken Arrow, Okla. The event, held in conjunction with the 2015 National Junior Angus Show (NJAS), helps fund education, youth and research initiatives.
“Evident from last year’s tournament, Angus supporters play through rain or shine to help raise funds for the Angus breed and youth,” says Milford Jenkins, Angus Foundation president. “This type of dedication shows the importance of our organization’s mission and the people who benefit from our projects.”
The 2015 event sponsor is Gary and Sharon Stevenson and family of Flying G Ranch, Caldwell, Texas. Stevenson purchased the sponsorship during the 2015 Angus Night on the Mountain fundraiser at Spruce Mountain Ranch, Larkspur, Colo., this past January.
Eight additional sponsorship levels are available for individuals, farms and ranches. Each sponsorship level contains various promotional opportunities, including recognition in the tournament program, post event news release, the Angus Journal, and the Angus Foundation’s website and annual report. Available sponsorships are: luncheon, beverage/player cart, club house, hole-in-one, gift, tee box, hole and flag. Sponsorship deadline is May 29.
In addition, Cusack Meats of Oklahoma City, Okla., will provide the Certified Angus Beef® brand steaks for the tournament awards luncheon.
Interested players may register until June 22, by either downloading the registration form online or by contacting the Angus Foundation for a quick registration. Adult golfer registration is $100 per player, and National Junior Angus Association (NJAA) member registration is $75 per player. After the June 22 deadline, a $10 late fee per player will apply to the rates.
