CCLA NEWS !!!
A few details I thought I would share for this year’s 2018 Golf Tournament-
This is our only fundraiser for the Mike Stacy Memorial Scholarship Fund.
Last month we gave away 14 scholarships to area students,
14 scholarships totaling over $10,000.
Our golf tournament is quickly approaching. As of today, we have 80 golfers pre-registered. It’s going to be a great day!
You must register and pay by October 6 in order to receive the special discounted price. The savings is $25 per golfer.
Be sure to send in your information today! This event usually sells out.
This is largely due to your generosity. Local businesses donate raffle prizes; friends, family, and members donate their time to work the tournament; businesses sponsor tee signs or part of the event; the board plans and executes the event; members and friends enjoy the course and the day. It all comes together to benefit the scholarship.
Please consider donating a raffle gift – especially if you own a business – gift certificates are so popular! It’s a win/win, bringing business back to your local business.
Please consider sponsoring a sign – for $100 we’ll have a sign on the golf course all day with your company name. It might even be included in the pictures of the day’s events.
Please consider golfing – it’s a fun day for an important cause.

Everyone had a great time at this week’s joint meeting mixer with the Home Builders. Lots of folks enjoyed networking, a beautiful location, wonderful food and a fun bartender!
Thank you to everyone who helped make this meeting a success. A big thank you to Stonewood, the setting was great, fire pits were going, the lights were twinkling, everything was great!
Paula Marlowe and Rob Kennedy presented the scholarship checks to this year’s recipients. We were so proud to present almost $10,000 to area students. Thank you to everyone who made this possible!
Some pictures of the night for your review!
Next month CCLA will be presenting the 2018 scholarship recipients with over $9,000! We’re so proud to be able to continue this tradition year after year and it’s a direct result of our yearly golf tournament – which is the sole fundraiser for the Mike Stacy Memorial Scholarship Fund.Although the tournament is months off, we’ve already started reaching out to our members to sponsor signs, donate raffle or auction prizes, help with the event and more. We’ve listed our sponsors who have already agreed to help and we’d like to thank each and every one of them.
Won’t you consider sponsoring a tee sign at our tournament? We will display your company name on the course for the duration of the event. Cost is only $100 and benefits the Mike Stacy Memorial Scholarship Fund.
