Save the Date!
I am very excited to announce that a one-day C-tier event falling under the PDGA’s charity endowment program will be coming to the Riverside Disc Golf course in Sumner, Washington. It is my goal to raise $5,000 for the YMCA’s Friends and Servants Program. For the last year and a half, the Friends and Servants Program has been partnering with the Pierce County Disc Golfers Players Association to help with course maintenance. Friends and Servants is a non-profit organization that works with at-risk youth to help them disconnect from the court system by providing them with an outlet to work off their court ordered community service hours under guidance of a positive adult mentor.
Friends and Servants has graciously donated countless staff and volunteer hours, as well the equipment and operating cost to the course and the disc golf community. I feel that “The Lahar Benefit Open” provides an opportunity for the disc golf community to say thank you as well as give back to their community. With that in mind, if you have any leads or ideas of potential sponsors for the event, please contact me.
To help reach the goal of $5,000, I am trying to keep tournament costs to a minimum. I am also going to experiment with the payout structure. It is my intent not to pay out in cash or script to division leaders, but in donated prizes of equal or greater market value. Please stay tuned as I will be keeping both this thread as well as the Pierce County Disc Golf Players Association updated with newly acquired prize swag.
