LOS ANGELES - The UCLA men's and women's water polo teams will host the 16th Annual Jim Toring Memorial Golf Tournament on Monday, July 23, at the Strawberry Farms Golf Club in Irvine, Calif. The yearly event, held in memoriam of former Bruin All-American Jim Toring, directly benefits both UCLA water polo programs.
Participants will have an opportunity to meet student-athletes from both the men's and women's water polo teams at this year's tournament. The women's water polo team captured its third consecutive NCAA Championship on Sunday, May 13, allowing UCLA to become the first university to win 100 NCAA team championships.
The day's events begin at 11 a.m. and include 18 holes of golf at Strawberry Farms Golf Club, tournament shirts and caps, tee gifts, access to the driving range, a boxed lunch, the "low gross" foursome awards, the "low net" foursome awards, raffle prizes, a silent auction, cocktails and a sit-down dinner and program. The day's events also include a putting contest, long drive contest, closest-to-the-pin contest and hole-in-one contest.
Entry into the tournament costs $225 ($65 of which is tax-deductible). There are many ways in which friends of UCLA water polo can support the tournament. For those who cannot attend the tournament, there are opportunities to sponsor a tee sign, donate an item to the silent auction or to the prize drawing, or advertise with signs at local stores and businesses.
The attached PDF registration form indicates how to sponsor a tee sign. These signs appear at each hole on the course and will be seen by each golfer that afternoon. Sponsoring a tee sign is 100 percent tax-deductible and can feature a company name, company logo or phrase showing your support for UCLA's men's and women's water polo programs.
Previous items donated to the silent auction and prize drawing have included a "Day on the Water Polo Bench," roundtrip airline tickets, a trip to the Bay Area water polo/football weekend, Los Angeles Dodgers tickets, vintage fine wines, seats in the VIP press box at a UCLA football game, breakfast with John Wooden, UCLA basketball tickets and pre-game receptions, a private suite at the Honda Center, UCLA Adidas sportswear, gift certificates to local restaurants and UCLA memorabilia autographed by John Wooden, current coaches and former Bruins playing in the NBA and NFL.
