Alumni golf sponsorships a good investment in campus students
13TH ANNUAL ALUMNI SCRAMBLE
11:00 a.m., Friday, Aug. 10, The Links at Spring Church
Penn State New Kensington students will be the beneficiaries of the Alle-Kiski Society's Alumni Golf Scramble that is set for 11 a.m. Friday, Aug. 10, at the Links at Spring Church, the home course for the campus golf team in Apollo, Pa.
Proceeds from the 13th annual edition benefits the "Alle-Kiski Society Endowed Scholarship," that funds yearly awards to campus undergraduates. Since 1998, the society has awarded $33,000 to 43 campus students.
And in an effort to boost the awards, the society has pledged $26,000 to increase the principal of its endowment from its current total of $51,000 to $76,000 during the current University-wide fundraising effort, For the Future: The Campaign for Penn State Students.
To reach its target number by 2014, the alumni group is relying on a variety of sponsorship levels for the golf outing. Businesses and individuals are encouraged to invest in campus students by taking advantage of sponsorship opportunities that range from exclusive sponsor of the tournament for $3,000 to a tee sponsor for $100. There are five levels and each level has different perks. The levels include: "The Pride," tournament sponsor for $3,000; "For the Future," dinner and awards sponsor for $1,500; "The Nittany," lunch sponsor for $500; "Roaring Lion," beverage cart sponsor for $500; and "Blue/White," tee sponsor for $100.
For golfers, the green fee is $110 and includes golf and cart, lunch, dinner, prizes and refreshments on the course. Participants can form their own foursome or a group can be formed for them. Various golf packages are available including foursomes, tee sponsorships and "dinner only." Faculty, staff, alumni and friends are encouraged to take a few divots to raise dollars for the society's scholarship fund.
