Sign Up for Angus Foundation Golf Tournament
An NJAS tradition, the event takes place July 5 to support education, youth and research.
The Angus Foundation’s 16th annual golf tournament takes place Tuesday, July 5, at the Indianhead Golf Club in Grand Island, Neb. The event is held in conjunction with the National Junior Angus Show (NJAS) each year and helps raise funds to support Angus education, youth and research.
“The annual golf tournament is a great way for Angus supporters to have a fun time with Angus friends, enjoy a round of golf while helping to generate much needed unrestricted funds for the future of the Angus breed and our youth,” says Milford Jenkins, Angus Foundation president. “We invite all Angus enthusiasts who will be in the Grand Island, Neb., area for the National Junior Angus Show to come out and participate in the tournament.”
Interested players may register until June 17, 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 17 deadline, a $10 late fee per player will apply to the rates.
The 2016 event sponsor is KNS Inc. Animal Nutrition of Lawrenceburg, Ky., who purchased the sponsorship during the 2016 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. Sponsorships that remain available until May 27 are luncheon, beverage/player cart, club house, hole-in-one, gift, tee box, hole and flag.
In addition, Sysco of Lincoln, Neb., will provide the Certified Angus Beef® (CAB®) brand steaks for the tournament awards luncheon.
