Eighth annual Golf Fore Education fundraiser tourney scheduled for June 24

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — It’s that time of year again — spring has sprung and the eighth annual Golf Fore Education tournament is gearing up for another fabulous fundraising event on June 24 at the Championship Course in Incline Village.

Three local nonprofit organizations are the recipients of proceeds from the Golf Fore Education Tournament: Incline Schools Academic Excellence Foundation (ISAEF), the Tahoe Nevada-American Association of University Women (TN-AAUW) and Project MANA.

“Project MANA is very excited to be involved with the Golf Fore Education tournament again this year and we’re expecting another fantastic day of golf and evening reception with a silent and live auction,” said Heidi Allstead, executive director of Project MANA. “Some changes were made for 2012 — we went from a two-day, two-course tournament last year to a one course, one day event at the Championship this year. The auction will immediately follow golf at the Chateau and golfers as well as non-golfers are invited.”

Auction items are now being accepted. Businesses and organizations who would like to donate silent and live auction items may call Project MANA at 775-298-0008 to inquire or send an email (please include a description and value) to HeidiA@projectmana.org to make arrangements to drop off the item or have it picked up from your location.

“We’re calling on the community to help us raise funds to increase educational opportunities for students and reach out to those in need, people can do this by making a donation for our silent or live auction,” Allstead said. “It’s our summer fundraiser, followed by the Chocolate, Wine and Roses event in the fall, and goes a long way to help our collaborating organizations throughout the year.”
