The 9th Annual Project SAVE Golf Tournament is teeing off at 9 a.m. Monday Oct. 3 at the Catta Verdera Country Club in Lincoln.
The tournament is the main source of funding for Project SAVE (Safe Alternatives and Violence Education), a non-profit organization started in 1998 to educate and support children drawn to violence in schools.
Since its creation, the organization has helped 2,500 Sacramento County youth after they are expelled from school for violent behaviors. According to Project SAVE, nine out of 10 of these students do not resort to violence at school again.
The tournament check-in will begin at 8 a.m. followed by the "shotgun" start at 9 a.m. After the tournament, a short luncheon will be held.
The event is still looking for participants, tournament hosts, contest sponsors, individual hole sponsors, volunteers and door prize donations.
The entry fee is $150 per person or $600 for a group of four. For information about registering for the tournament, contact Cheryl Raney at (916) 228-2201. For information about Project SAVE, visit the Sacramento County Office of Education's website at www.scoe.net.
