There are still open spots remaining to play in the 15th annual Boys & Girls Club of Lake Tahoe Golf Tournament on Monday at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course.

The fundraiser remains one of the premiere events for the organization, which continues its long-standing tradition of providing activities for children living on South Shore.

In addition to there being slots open to play, there are also a few spots remaining for local businesses to sponsor selected holes on the course.

For $3,000, a sponsor can award the ace-maker $12,500 in company product, plus $12,500 in $150 sweepstakes tickets toward a $649,000 Lake Tahoe home being raffled by the Boys & Girls Club as its major fundraiser to keep the club’s doors open year-round.

The sponsorship also includes a foursome of players, tee signage and pre and post-event publicity and community goodwill. Hole-in-one sponsorships are also available for companies looking for a fun way to help a good cause and attract serious attention for their business.

And as it has for many years, Edgewood has donated the use of its course for the event and, as usual, there will be dozens of prizes and merchandise to be given away.
