SPONSORSHIP PACKET

The Vail Recreation District and Vail Chamber & Business Association will host the seventh annual Businesses, Bogeys, and Bragging Rights Community Golf Tournament on Thursday, Sept. 10 at the Vail Golf Club to benefit the VRD’s Tom Slaughter Jr. Memorial Youth Recreation Grant. Teams, sponsors, and raffle item donations are being sought – don’t miss out on the best event of the season!

The grant program, a memorial to Vail Valley resident Tom Slaughter, Jr. who enjoyed endless recreational opportunities in the valley, is used to award funds to school-aged children who are in need of financial support to participate in VRD youth programs.

The VRD is partnering with the VCBA for the tournament as an opportunity to bring the community together for a spirited day of golf, celebrate a successful summer and contribute to the development of the Vail Valley’s youth.

The VRD is partnering with the VCBA for the tournament as an opportunity to bring the community together for a spirited day of golf, celebrate a successful summer and contribute to the development of the Vail Valley’s youth.

The Tom Slaughter, Jr. Memorial Grant Program began in 1997 and provides youth with opportunities to participate in VRD day and sport camps, gymnastics, golf, basketball and other programs in Vail. Each year, the VRD awards approximately $20,000 in cash and in-kind services to children in Eagle County through its Eagle County Youth Activities Grant and the Tom Slaughter, Jr. Memorial Grant programs.

These programs have helped hundreds of local youth get outside, learn, grow, and recreate. Last year’s golf tournament hosted 32 teams and raised over $20,000 to be used this year and in future years. “Last year’s tournament was incredibly successful and showed how the local community can come together for a great cause,” said VRD Executive Director Mike Ortiz. “We pride ourselves in providing amazing learning opportunities for the young and young at heart.

We’re excited to partner with the VCBA for the seventh summer and offer our community an opportunity to celebrate our local children.”  

Team registration is underway for the tournament and cost to participate is $500 per foursome, including up to two carts per team. Participants will enjoy unique challenges around the course, as well as opportunities to compete based on performance and spirit.

This year, the tournament has a new theme – Hollywood Golf Movies! Themed costumes are encouraged, so come dressed as your favorite Caddy Shack, Happy Gilmore or other golf movie characters.

Due to current public health orders, returning participants will see some modifications this year including tee times and no official after-party, however, we think everyone will still have a great time. Register today to reserve your team spot as this tournament will sell out.    

Sponsorships are also available for businesses within the community, including green and/or tee sponsorship, presenting sponsors and raffle item donations.

We hope you will join us for this fun event, with a new theme this year of HOLLYWOOD GOLF MOVIES!

For more information on the tournament, contact Alison Wadey with Vail Chamber & Business Association at 970-477-0075 or Jessie Klehfoth, VRD Marketing and Communications Director at 970-479-2446.
