Head Coach Carrie Forsyth, entering her 12th season, is excited about the event. "Our fundraiser has grown into a fun day of golf, camaraderie and all things UCLA. It is a great opportunity for our former players to reunite and help support our program. We are extremely thankful to the Gifford Foundation, which will serve as our title sponsor for the second consecutive year."
Forsyth has built the UCLA program into a national powerhouse, guiding it to 10 straight NCAA berths, an NCAA title in 2004, five NCAA Regional Championships, three Pac-10 titles and 34 tournament victories.
