10th Annual Gateway Science Academy Men’s Club Golf Tournament

Subject: 10th Annual Gateway Science Academy Men’s Club Golf Tournament

Friends and Family of Gateway Science Academy,

The 2020 Gateway Science Academy Men’s Club Golf Tournament will go on as scheduled. This year’s event will be held at Quail Creek Golf Course on Saturday, October 3 at 1:30pm.

After months of debate as to whether or not we would have the event, we decided that if there ever was a time to have the event, that time is now! Our students and our teachers need resources and support more than ever as we navigate thru these unprecedented times of virtual education.

In hosting this annual Men’s Club fundraiser which netted just over $10,000 last year for Gateway Science Academy, we needed to be sensitive to the following; (1) Covid-19 and (2) our local businesses who support the golf tournament and are too struggling during these times.

Despite last year’s success, this year’s focus will be primarily on golf revenue and smaller sponsorships. We reduced this year’s foursome price and hole sponsor donation amount requests. Our goal is to fill the entire field and do what we can for our GSA Family. This year’s event will not have a dinner to follow, but the Men’s Club will have a Grill going all day behind the 1st Hole. As always, there are plenty of spirits to be enjoyed. All participants will receive a comprehensive tee gift package and prizes will be awarded for A & B Flight Winners. There will not be an auction at this year’s event, but we will be selling raffle tickets for select items and gifts on the 1st Hole during play.

We hope that everyone will consider playing in this year’s event (since there is nothing else to do). If you can’t participate, we are looking for the following donations/sponsorships:

  • Corporate Hole Sponsor: $100 (Name on Hole Sign Only)
  • GSA Family & Friends Sponsor: $75 (Name on Hole Sign Only)
  • Grandparent Sponsor: $50 (Name on Hole Sign Only)
  • Helping Hand Sponsor: $___________ (Donation of Any Amount)
  • Lunch Sponsor: $400 (Name at On-Course Grilling Station)
  • Beverage Sponsor: $500 (Name at Registration, On-Course Station, & Beverage Cart)

Last year’s newly added Grandparent Sponsorship was a huge success. If you can’t donate, this is a great way to boost the success of this event; Call Grandma and Grandpa!

Please see the attached entry form for golf and sponsorships.

Thank you in advance for your participation in the Gateway Science Academy Men’s Club Golf Tournament!
