Spring Branch Education Foundation’s (SBEF) 21st annual Golf Classic is slated for Saturday, April 8, 2017, at River Ridge Golf Course in Sealy. Proceeds from the tournament will benefit students and teachers in Spring Branch Independent School District. Co-chairs Mike Baker and Jay Sartain are expecting a sold-out event.
“For two decades, the Golf Classic has continued to grow,” said Cece Thompson, SBEF executive director. “It’s a popular tournament because golfers appreciate that the money goes for scholarships and campus grants. Everyone is guaranteed to enjoy the day.”
The tournament is a four-player team scramble and includes a raffle, mulligans, a sponsored drive for scholarships and contests for putting, longest drive and closest to the hole. Breakfast and lunch are included. Team and individual registration is open through Tuesday, April 4: teams, $2,000; individuals, $500. Register online at https://sbef.ejoinme.org/golf. Call the SBEF office, 713-251-2381, for more information.
Perdue Brandon Fielder Collins & Mott, LLP has signed on as the tournament’s Eagle Clubhouse sponsor. Also stepping up as sponsors are Phillips 66; Group 1 Automotive; MetroNational; Stantec Architecture, Inc.; and PBK Architects, Inc. Other sponsorships are available.
