PTA students teeing up for second annual fundraiser
Time is running out for any golfers who want to register for the second annual Athens Technical College PTA Classic Golf Tournament that is scheduled for Friday, November 8 at Lane Creek Golf Course in Bishop. The deadline to register is this Thursday, November 1.
Students with Athens Technical College’s Physical Therapist Assistant program have organized the fundraiser to help cover costs for them to attend the American Physical Therapy Association Combined Sections Meeting in February in Nevada. Proceeds from the event will pay for the students to attend the national gathering. Athens Technical College PTA students try to participate every year.
The annual meeting provides an educational opportunity for the students but also involves travel costs and expenses. Students can attend local or state meetings during the year, but they have to pay for each class they attend. At the annual meeting, however, one fee covers all the classes they attend.
The November 8 golf fundraiser will feature four-men teams playing a Lauderdale format, meaning each team member hits his or her ball from the lie of the best previous shot. Entry fees for the tourney are $75 per player, and the cost includes 18 holes of golf at Lane Creek, range balls to practice at the course, lunch and dinner, and a tee gift. Mulligans and Par-3 string holes also are available. Sponsorships are available as well at $1,000, $500, $250, or $100 levels.
Sign-in on the day of the tournament begins at 10:30 a.m. at Lane Creek with lunch served at 11:30 a.m. and tee time set at 12:30 p.m.
