LASD Announces Shootout Golf Tournament
This spring, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department is hosting its annual Shootout Golf Tournament at the Tournament Players Club in Valencia. The event is scheduled for Monday, April 15, 2013 and all proceeds will benefit the Sheriff’s Youth Foundation, which includes several important programs, such as Success Through Awareness and Resistance (STAR) and the Youth Activities League, among others.
“The Sheriff’s Shootout promises to be a great day of sport and celebration, all while raising money for the foundation,” said John March, director of operations for the Sheriff’s Youth Foundation and co-chair of the tournament. “At the end of the day, this is all about investing in the lives of Los Angeles County’s children. From those at risk to those with special needs, the foundation’s programs help prepare these kids for lives of success.”
The event is now accepting sponsors, and prices range from $250 as a single course sign sponsor to $50,000 as a tournament sponsor. Tournament sponsors receive four teams of four, four course signs and a logo banner, lunch for two with Sheriff Baca and more. Individual golfer registration is $250 and it is $50 to attend the awards dinner only.
“I’ve got to tell you, it’s a privilege to be involved in the Sheriff's Shootout,” said Santa Clarita Mayor Pro Tem and tournament co-chair Bob Kellar. “The men and women of our Sheriff’s Department are day-in, day-out pouring themselves into protecting and shaping our county’s youth. If that’s not reason enough to raise funds with a round of golf, I don’t know what is.”
