The Vail Recreation District (VRD) and Vail Chamber & Business Association (VCBA) recently issued the following press release on the upcoming Businesses, Bogeys & Bragging Rights Charity Golf Tournament:
The Vail Recreation District (VRD) and Vail Chamber & Business Association (VCBA) will host the 10th annual Businesses, Bogeys & Bragging Rights Charity Golf Tournament on Thursday, Sept. 14 at the Vail Golf Club to benefit the VRD’s Tom Slaughter, Jr. Memorial Youth Recreation Grant. Teams, sponsors and silent auction donations are being sought – don’t miss out on the best event of the season, and help us celebrate our landmark 10th anniversary of this tournament.
Register today to reserve your team spot as this tournament will sell out!
The grant program is a memorial to Vail resident and Lionshead employee Tom Slaughter, Jr. and is used to award funds to local school-aged children who are in need of financial support to participate in VRD youth programs. The VRD partners with the VCBA for the tournament as an opportunity to bring the community together for a social and spirited day of golf, celebrate a successful summer and contribute to the development of the Vail Valley’s youth.
Each year, the VRD awards approximately $20,000 in cash and in-kind services to children in Eagle County through the Tom Slaughter, Jr. Memorial Grant programs. Last year’s golf tournament hosted 32 teams and raised over $20,000 to be used this year and in future years.
“The 10th anniversary of the Businesses, Bogeys & Bragging Rights is a significant milestone for everyone involved,” says Mike Ortiz, Executive Director of the VRD. “We are immensely proud of what we have achieved over the years, and the impact this tournament has had on the community. We are very grateful to the players, sponsors, staff, volunteers and the VCBA for making this event a success for ten years running!”
Team registration is underway for the tournament and cost to participate is $650 per team, including carts. Mulligan cost is one for $10 and three for $25 – those who purchase mulligans will be entered into a raffle drawing for a variety of prizes donated by the community. Each golfer will receive a take-home gift, and the winning teams will receive unique themed awards.
Sponsorship opportunities include: title sponsor, activations sponsor (sponsor on-course challenges including the driving range and the potato gun contest), hole-in-one sponsor, golf ball sponsor and more! These sponsorships are a great way to get your company’s name out to a large group of local business leaders and prominent community members. Raffle items and silent auction items are also being sought.
This year, the tournament has a new theme – Viva Las Vegas! Themed costumes are encouraged, so come dressed in your favorite Vegas getup!
Following the tournament, an after-party with raffle prizes and awards will be held in the beautiful Gore Range Room at the Vail Golf & Nordic Clubhouse, and the Grill on the Gore restaurant staff are already planning a fun Vegas-themed menu for the party.
