21st Annual Lettermen's Golf Tournament
Sept. 30, 2009
Tulsa, Okla. -
Dear Lettermen, Alumni, Golden Hurricane Members and Friends:
The Twenty First Annual University of Tulsa Lettermen's Association Golf Tournament will be held on Friday, October 30, 2009 at LaFortune Park Golf Course. Once again the tournament is being held in conjunction with Homecoming. We encourage everyone to sign up early as last year we had the largest turnout ever!
An All Sports Reception with Silent Auction will be held Friday evening beginning at 7:30 p.m. It will take place on the ONEOK Club Level at Chapman Stadium. Food and drink will be provided at a cost of $20.00. The reception will be complimentary for Lifetime Lettermen Club members.
Eastern Oklahoma Orthopedic Center (EOOC) will be our presenting sponsor. EOOC has supported the university and TU athletics for more than 40 years.
This event is the only major fundraiser for the Lettermen's Association. This past year funds generated by the Lettermen's Association paid for 85 lettermen rings for graduating senior athletes. The University of Tulsa is one of the original schools in the country that provide lettermen rings for their student athletes. We also host a graduation reception and award TULA student-athlete stoles worn by the student athletes during commencement exercises. Lettermen jackets continue to be provided to both male and female letter award winners by the association. Our total contribution to TU athletics since 1995 is over a half million dollars.
Shotgun starts for the tournament are at 7:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. at Lafortune Park Golf Course. We are encouraging morning participation that includes a breakfast snack in addition to lunch. You can also look forward to great gifts, raffle prizes, a silent auction, and lots of fun! More information is available at tulsahurricane.com. A sign-up sheet for registering your foursome is attached. If you do not have a complete foursome, we will pair you with other players. The tournament is open to everyone.
We encourage you to attend this event, either as a group you put together or as a single participant. Another avenue to assist us in gaining revenue for the Letttermen's Association is through a hole sponsorship. Information concerning hole sponsorship is attached. If you cannot attend or do not play golf, your tax-deductible donation would be greatly appreciated in helping us continue to better serve our student athletes.
To ensure your preference in tee times, we ask that sign-up sheets be returned as soon as possible, but no later than Friday, October 23, 2009. Again, we expect a large turnout so entries received after the deadline will be subject to availability.
Thank you for your continued support of The University of Tulsa and Hurricane Athletics! Please feel free to contact me with any questions. I can be reached at (918) 637-7115 or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
