Dear Friend of Lacrosse:
On behalf of the Philadelphia Lacrosse Association, I would like to invite you to participate in the 25TH Annual PLA Golf Classic to be held on Monday, October 9th at Rolling Green Golf Club in Springfield, Pennsylvania. Your participation in our Silver Anniversary Outing will support the PLA’s mission to promote the game of lacrosse in the region, particularly our New Start Program, which provides technical and financial assistance to new lacrosse programs.
Last year’s PLA Golf Classic at Manufacturers Country Club featured 92 golfers and 40 corporate and individual sponsors and helped the PLA raised over $17,000. The proceeds enabled the PLA to do the following:
- Support of the PIAA Public Lacrosse League and youth/middle school programs in Philadelphia;
- Conduct/sponsor high school and youth coaches’ clinics;
- Sponsor area charitable tournaments that keep Philadelphia lacrosse in the spotlight;
- Organize/underwrite the 4th Annual PLA High School Awards Recognition Banquet, which brought both the boys’ and girls’ games together to recognize elite high school lacrosse players and others who made their mark on the 2017 high school lacrosse season; and
- Support the HEADstring Project, which has refurbished and donated over 500 sticks for the benefit of programs in the City and Greater Philadelphia.
We are excited to return to Rolling Green, the Club last hosted our event in 2007. Since then, the course has experienced significant improvements and recently served as the venue for the US Women’s Amatuer. Rolling Green is a parkland style classic, featuring a great routing and scenic beauty throughout. Rolling Green is one of the “must play” courses in the Philadelphia area.
We would welcome your and your company’s participation and sponsorship to help ensure the outing’s success. All sponsors, patrons and (if applicable) their logos (and websites) will be promoted on tee-signs, in the event program, in press releases and on PLA website and the PLA Golf Outing website.
Please reserve your spot in the Silver Anniversary Outing by registering for the event as soon as possible, but in any event before Wednesday, October 5th (“Early Bird” special ends September 17th). If you are not a golfer or cannot attend the golfing activities, you are welcome to attend the cocktail reception and banquet that begins at 5:30 pm. Space in the outing is limited and registrations will be processed on a first come, first served basis.
As in the past, the PLA Golf Classic promises to be a fully subscribed and memorable one. So please come out, catch up with good friends and join the fun. At the same time, you will help make it possible for even more boys and girls in the City and our larger region to discover the joy of America’s native game. Hope to see you there, thanks for your consideration and continuing support.
Chair, PLA Golf Classic
