Los Angeles - The UCLA men's and women's water polo teams will host the 15th Annual Jim Toring Memorial Golf Tournament on Monday, August 7 at the Mesa Verde Country Club in Costa Mesa. The yearly event, which is held in memoriam of former Bruin All-American Jim Toring, directly benefits both UCLA water polo programs.
The fun day of golf and cameraderie, which begins at 9 a.m., includes 18 holes of golf at Mesa Verde Country Club, tournament shirts and caps, tee gifts, continental breakfast, a putting contest, driving range, BBQ lunch, long drive contest, closest-to-the-pin contest, "low gross" foursome awards, "low net" foursome awards, raffle prizes, silent auction, hole-in-one contest, cocktails and a sit-down dinner and program.
Cost for an entry into the tournament is $215 ($65 of which is tax-deductible).
There are many ways in which you can help support the tournament. Of course, golfing is the best (and most fun) way, but if you are not a golfer or cannot make it to the tournament, you can still participate.
You Can Sponsor a Tee Sign
The enclosed participation form has a place for you to mark off if you want to sponsor a tee sign. These signs appear at each hole and are seen by every golfer who plays through on the course that day. You can have your name, your company's name and/or logo, or just something that says how much you support the Water Polo programs on your sign. It is fully, 100% tax-deductible.
You Can Make a Donation to the Silent Auction or to the Prize Drawing
Enclosed also is an "Auction Donation Form." We have had former players, friends, sponsors, and parents of current and former players donate various items to either our Silent Auction or Prize Drawing (raffle.) Some of our previous items include: "Day on the Water Polo Bench," Roundtrip Airline Tickets, Bay Area Water Polo/Football Weekend, Dodger Tickets, Vintage Fine Wines, Seats in the VIP Press Box at a UCLA Football Game, Breakfast with John Wooden, UCLA Basketball Tickets with Pre-Game Receptions, Private Suite at the Arrowhead Pond, UCLA adidas Sportwear, Gift Certificates to Many Local Restaurants, UCLA Balls and Jerseys Autographed by John Wooden, current coaches, and former players now in the NBA and NFL, and much more!
You Can Put Signs up in Local Stores or at Your Businesses
Just let us know if you need signs or other advertising and we will be happy to provide them for you. The more people participating, the more successful the fund raiser!
