Angus Foundation Golf Tournament Scheduled for July 8

Get involved to support the future of Angus education, youth and research


The Angus Foundation’s 14th annual golf tournament will take place Tuesday, July 8 at the Deer Creek Golf Club in Clayton, Ind. Held in conjunction with the 2014 National Junior Angus Show (NJAS), the tournament is a short drive southwest of Indianapolis. The Angus Foundation is seeking both players and sponsors for the tournament.

Angus Foundation President Milford Jenkins says the organization aims to raise $25,000 from the tournament, which benefits the Angus Foundation’s education, youth and research programs.

 “We invite Angus-golf enthusiasts to join us for this enjoyable fundraising activity as a player or sponsor,” Jenkins says. “With your help, we will raise the remaining balance needed to achieve our goal, as Express Ranches has given us a good start.”

The 2014 event sponsor is Express Ranches of Yukon, Okla. Bob Funk, owner, purchased the event sponsorship for $4,000 during the 2014 Angus Night on the Mountain fundraiser at Spruce Mountain Ranch, Larkspur, Colo., this past January.

Eight additional sponsorship levels for individuals, farms and ranches are available. 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, annual report and newsletter. Available sponsors are: luncheon, beverage/player cart, club house, hole-in-one, gift, tee box, hole and flag. Sponsorship deadline is May 30.

Interested players may register until June 23. Adult golfer registration is $100 per player, and National Junior Angus Association (NJAA) member registration is $75 per player. After June 23 deadline, a $10 late fee per player will apply to the rates.
