Members of the Boys and Girls Club of Lake Tahoe enjoyed a very eventful week at the American Century Championship event held at Edgewood Tahoe. On Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday club members received passes to attend the event, take photos, and get autographs from their favorite celebrities. In addition to the club’s involvement of selling tickets for the event and providing volunteers for an NBC vendor booth, the club received a special surprise from the team of volunteers who facilitate at the event. Unbeknownst to the club, the volunteers and Ross McAlister, from Southern Golf Enterprises, came up with a plan to raise money for the club.

Spearheaded by Kathi Woodman of Sacramento the group sold raffle tickets for a special golf memorabilia print donated by McAlister.
