LOS ANGELES - The UCLA baseball program will host the 29th annual UCLA Baseball Golf Tournament and dinner on Monday, Nov. 21, at Strawberry Farms Golf Club in Irvine, Calif. The yearly golf tournament includes a silent auction and banquet in the evening.
Participants will have the opportunity to meet UCLA's baseball team at the evening dinner. This year's golf tournament will coincide with the conclusion of the team's annual Blue-Gold World Series, scheduled for Nov. 14-18 at Steele Field at Jackie Robinson Stadium.
Those interested in attending the upcoming golf tournament or donating silent auction items should contact Scott Wandzilak in UCLA's Wooden Athletic Fund Office at (310) 206-3302 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The day's events include 18 holes of golf at Strawberry Farms Golf Club, tournament shirts, tee gifts, access to the driving range, a boxed lunch, the "low gross" foursome awards and "low net" foursome awards, raffle prizes, a silent auction, cocktails and a sit-down dinner and program. Also included are a long drive contest, closest-to-the-pin contest and hole-in-one contest.
Entry into the tournament costs $300 for an individual ($150 tax deductible) and $1,000 for a foursome ($400 tax deductible).
There are numerous opportunities for friends of the baseball program to support the tournament. For those unable to attend, such opportunities include sponsoring a tee, sponsoring a coach to play in the tournament, sponsoring a player to attend the dinner, or donating an auction item. The tournament web site indicates how to sponsor a tee. The baseball program encourages those unable to attend the golf tournament to join the team for dinner (5 p.m.), which costs $75 per person.
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.
