Dodge City Community College Foundation is looking for sponsors.

The Foundation’s Seventh Annual Fundraising Golf Tournament is set for Friday, Aug. 18 at Mariah Hills Golf Course in Dodge City. The Foundation has sponsorship opportunities at four different levels.

The Marshal Level ($1,000) includes advertising in all promotional materials, name on banner and scorecard. It also includes 4 player registrations.

The Deputy Level ($500) includes advertising in all promotional materials, name on banner and scorecard. It also includes 2 player registrations.

Posse Level ($250) includes advertising in tournament day brochure and score card.

Wrangler Level ($150) includes sign on specific holes.

"This is one of our biggest fundraisers each year," said Christina Haselhorst, DCCC Foundation director. "The goal of the Foundation is to have funds to help the college with programs, improvements, whatever we can to help."

The four-person scramble is limited to 36 teams with prizes offered for three flights and on-course contests such as longest drive and closet to the pin. Registration is 9 to 10 a.m. with a shotgun start at 10. Entry fee is $90 per person.

"The Foundation wants to see Dodge City Community College flourish and expand to meet the higher education needs of Dodge City and southwest Kansas," Haselhorst said. "DCCC is important and beneficial to our community.

"Many communities our size would love to have a college like DCCC and we recognize how important community support is to a college. Having an annual fundraising golf tournament will certainly meet some of the financial needs of the Foundation for the support of the students and DCCC, and I would encourage everyone to support the tournament by playing, sponsorship or both."

Haselhorst mentioned previous golf tournaments have been good to the Foundation, which has gone through some recent changes.

"We’re only about 25 percent associated with the college, which allows us more control of where our funds go," she said. "It gives us opportunities to help the college in more ways than we have in the past."

For more information on playing or sponsoring the tournament, contact Haselhorst at the DCCC Foundation at 620-225-9541 or Chris Robinson, Mariah Hills golf pro, at 620-225-8182.
