Winona, MN (July 10 , 2017) -- The Minnesota State College Southeast Foundation is hosting the 9th annual Alumni & Friends Golf Tournament on Monday, August 7, 2017 at The Bridges in Winona. Secure online registration is available now at www.southeastmn.edu/winonagolf. Special thanks to our event sponsor, Winona National Bank.
"Over the years, events like this and our May golf tournament in Red Wing have raised more than $250,000 for MSC Southeast Foundation. This provides essential scholarship funding for our neediest students," says MSC Southeast Director of Alumni and Scholarships Casie Johnson. "Plus the tournament is a great way to build relationships with the Southeast Minnesota community and beyond while enjoying a day outdoors."
The golf tournament will be a four-person scramble with a shotgun start at 12 noon. Golfers can register as individuals or groups; the organizers can pair people up to make a foursome if needed. This year, the tournament will take place at a new location, The Bridges (formerly the Winona Country Club). Set in beautiful Pleasant Valley, the Bridges offers striking vistas and a challenging golf course. Pleasant Creek winds through the course, coming into play on nine of the eighteen holes.
After golfing, everyone comes together for dinner and a silent and live auction in the clubhouse. Prizes for the top golfers, 10th place and "Most Honest" (last place) are awarded. Guests who don't participate in the tournament are welcome to join in for the dinner and auction portion of the event. Auction items include theme gift baskets, event tickets, and special experiences.
To become a sponsor or donate items for the auctions, please contact Casie Johnson (507-453-2663 or firstname.lastname@example.org ). For more information and secure online registration, go to www.southeastmn.edu/winonagolf.
