Golf Tournament – GT
The purpose of this ten-member committee is to plan and present an annual fundraiser of women-only golf tournament with a scramble format. This event supports our scholarship program. It is a two-year commitment with meetings beginning in January with the tournament in the summer. Committee members are responsible for securing financial sponsorships to cover the operating costs of the tournament. Sub-committees will handle coordinating the event with the selected golf course, tournament rules, continental breakfast and luncheon, prizes, workers and any other duties deemed necessary by the chair. No golfing experience is necessary to serve on this committee. The committee recruits hole sponsors, larger gifts and prizes for the raffles and various small gifts to the golfers.
Because this is a major fundraiser, ALL Philo members who are not on the committee, are necessary to help in various areas to make the fund raiser successful. Members are asked to solicit a sponsorship, to work at the course, set up prizes, sell tickets, etc., the day of the event for a 3-8 hour commitment, or to sign up and play golf. Members are also requested to donate a gift basket.
