Iota Chi Lambda Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. is hosting the 7th Annual Carl C. Poston Jr. Scholarship Golf Tournament, June 19, 2021 at Swan Valley Golf Course, Saginaw MI. This is an annual event to raise scholarship funds for high school students in the Great Lakes Bay region. Shotgun Start at 9:00 am.
Alpha Phi Alpha has a long history of scholarship activities. Over the years, nearly 80 young men have attended many colleges/universities with partial support from our scholarship program. This program with the help of the community has been greatly appreciated by many students and their families who need financial assistance in attending college. Individuals and local businesses have supported this fundraiser through their participation as golf competitors, and by sponsoring gifts and/or golf holes with monetary contributions. So far, we have nearly 20 financial sponsors.
Our sponsors for 2020 included a number of Great Lakes Bay regional businesses, fraternal groups and individuals who have been partners with our Fraternity and friends with Mr Poston Jr, for whom this golf tournament is named, said Sherwood Spells, Iota Chi Lambda chapter Vice President and golf tourney co-chair. A list of other individual, fraternal and business sponsors supporting this event can be provided. Each sponsor will be recognized at the event with special signage both in the Club house and at each hole on the golf course.
The golf competition is a “scramble” format, full of challenges and fun-filled activities; and it includes a lunch, dinner and many prizes, said Gary Brooks, golf tourney co-chair. Golfers and sponsors are still welcome to participate. We are still seeking organizations and individuals to support this fundraiser by either sponsoring a team or becoming a golf hole sponsor. Sponsorships range from $50 for display board recognition, to $600 for full-tournament recognitions and include a 4-person team. Early-bird individual registration is $65 until June 6, 2021 and $85 after that date.
