Sponsorships are available in many dollar amounts or as in-kind donations. Gifts in memory of a loved one are also accepted. Sponsors receive a range of benefits depending on sponsorship level, including the opportunity to field a foursome in the tournament, inclusion in the event program and raffle tickets.
