College of the Canyons Foundation to host annual golf tourney

Santa Clarita Valley golfers are invited to polish their clubs, gather a foursome and hit the links in support of education during the College of the Canyons Foundation's 20th annual charity golf tournament.

Presented by Klassen Corporation and Lundgren Management, the COC Foundation's charity golf tournament will take place Monday, Sept. 13, at the Valencia Country Club.

Proceeds from this year's event will benefit the COC hockey club team and the men and women's golf teams, while also supporting the Foundation's ongoing efforts to provide increased educational opportunities for students and community members of all ages.

"Our company has been a strong supporter of College of the Canyons and its students for many years," said Jerry Klassen, CEO, Klassen Corporation. "We believe in the college's mission and know the powerful impact a good education can have on the lives of students. We're pleased to continue demonstrating our canyons pride through events such as the charity golf tournament."

Often times student athletes pursue higher education as a result of their passion for a specific sport, only to find themselves increasingly fulfilled by the academic programs and educational opportunities they encounter while in school.

In addition to providing the impetus to seek out higher education, athletic programs help develop leadership and goal setting skills, instill an appreciation for teamwork and sportsmanship and build character through the lessons learned through competition.

On average, COC students pay roughly $2,100 per school year for academic fees, textbooks and supplies - making the cost of attending school one of the greatest barriers students will face on their educational journey.

In response, the Foundation has continually worked to generate funds - through annual giving, special events and endowment programs - to provide more opportunities for an affordable and accessible college education for all those with the desire to succeed.

Tournament participants will be supporting students beyond what public funding will allow. Last year's tournament featured more than 80 golfers teeing off in the name of education.

"Lundgren Management is pleased to sponsor the COC Foundation's annual golf tournament," said Dale Lundgren, President of Lundgren Management. "As a local company that calls Santa Clarita home we are proud to be able to have a positive impact on the college's continued commitment to serving students in our community."

Single player tournament sponsorship opportunities begin at $350, with each player receiving a continental breakfast, cart and greens fees, driving range privileges, a player's gift bag, lunch and beverages on the course and participation in the post tournament awards reception.

For a $1,000 sponsorship players will receive all tournament benefits, a sponsor sign display and entry into the hole-in-one, beat the pro, long drive and closest to the pin contests.

Tournament participants may also sponsor three man teams and fill the final spot in the foursome with a current or former member of College of the Canyons' championship golf team.

Other tournament team sponsorship opportunities include:
Birdie Sponsor - $2,500
One team made up of three players, plus a COC championship player.
Named as sponsor in publicity and tournament publications.
Tee sign.

Eagle Sponsor - $5,000
Two teams of three players, plus a COC championship player added to each team.

Sponsorship payments must be received by Aug. 16. Tournament reservations are not confirmed until payment is received.
