Tahoe Celebrity Golf Fundraising
Each summer our Club looks forward to its involvement in the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship held in July at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course. With a purse of $600,000 and network television exposure, it’s the most prestigious and richest celebrity tournament in golf. The event is known not only for exciting golf, but also as an opportunity for the public to mingle with celebrities and also as a favorite event for autograph seekers.
Since 1990 our Club has had the opportunity to participate in this event by partnering with Edgewood to operate the food concession booths for the tournament. Each year our members, along with help from friends and family, contribute more than 2000 volunteer hours to this endeavor. Throughout these years we’ve been able to raise substantial funds that we put back into the community to accomplish our mission.
It’s not only about raising money; it’s an opportunity for all the volunteers to have fun while meeting and greeting celebrities. We share time together as we put on our aprons, roll up our sleeves, pin back our hair and demonstrate that if you need a big job done ask a women’s group to do it.
