LOS ANGELES - The UCLA baseball program will host the 25th Annual UCLA Baseball Golf Tournament and Banquet on Monday, Nov. 19, at the Strawberry Farms Golf Club in Irvine, Calif. The yearly golf tournament includes both a silent and live auction and a banquet in the evening.
The deadline to register for this year's tournament is Monday, Nov. 5.
Participants will have an opportunity to meet UCLA's baseball team at the banquet. Last season, the baseball team advanced to the NCAA Super Regionals for the first time since 2000. With the 2008 season fast approaching, the Bruins are poised for a run to the College World Series.
The day's events include 18 holes of golf at Strawberry Farms Golf Club, tournament jackets and caps, tee gifts, access to the driving range, a boxed lunch, the "low gross" foursome awards, and "low net" foursome awards, raffle prizes, a silent action, cocktails and a sit-down dinner and program. The day's events also include a long drive contest, closest-to-the-pin contest and hole-in-one contest. Entry into the tournament costs $250 ($75 of which is tax-deductible).
There are many ways in which friends of UCLA baseball can support the tournament. For those who cannot attend the tournament, there are opportunities to sponsor a tee, sponsor a coach to play in the tournament, sponsor a player to attend the dinner, or donate an item for the auction. The PDF registration form (see link above) indicates how to sponsor a tee.
Previous items donated to the silent auction and prize drawing have included MLB autographed baseballs and bats, roundtrip airline tickets, UCLA Adidas sportswear, gift certificates to local restaurants, and UCLA memorabilia autographed by John Wooden, current coaches and former Bruins playing in Major League Baseball, the NBA and the NFL.
