Wednesday, August 7, 2013 • Posted August 8, 2013

The Highland Lakes Crisis Center is looking for sponsors for the 30th Annual Golf Tournament and Silent Auction to raise funds to continue services for survivors of domestic and sexual violence in Llano, Burnet, Blanco, and Lampasas counties.

The tournament and silent auction is set for Saturday, October 5, 2013 at the Delaware Spring Golf Course in Burnet. The four-person teams scramble will have a shot-gun start at 12:30 p.m.

“We are seeking sponsors, donors, and underwriters,” said Phillip Lee, Golf Tournament Director. “This fundraiser is the largest the Crisis Center hosts to raise awareness and support local families in need.”

Last year the Crisis Center provided free and confidential services to 2,786 new clients including children, women, and men. On average, counselors and advocates see over 250 individuals every month for intensive emergency and ongoing support services.

“For 30 years we have relied on the community’s support to help local families in need, especially children,” said Alma Lahmon, Highland Lakes Family Crisis Center Executive Director. “By becoming a sponsor or donor for our golf tournament you partner with us in creating safer local communities and support our mission to end domestic and sexual violence.”

Businesses such as The Business Center, W.E.K. & Associates, Service Title Company Hill Country RV, and Blanco Auto Parts have become sponsors, as well as many individuals. Local businesses have also donated to the silent auction, such as Atkins Pharmacy, Backbone Valley Nursery, Johnson Sewell Ford, Kingsland Health and Fitness, and Aladdin Home Stores.

The Golf Tournament have four levels of sponsorship: Platinum, which is a donation of $1,500, allows for 8 golfers, and sponsor’s name on a full sign; Gold , which is a donation of $1,000, allows for 4 golfers, and sponsor’s name on a half sign; Silver, which is a donation of $500, allows for 2 golfers, and sponsor’s name on a quarter sign, and Bronze, which is a donation of $250, allows for 1 golfer, and sponsor’s name on eighth of a sign. Each sponsor will receive recognition in the local media during and after the tournament.

This year the entry fee is $65 a player, which includes greens fee, cart, refreshments, and fajita dinner. The deadline to register is September 20, 2013 and is limited to the first 144 players. Golfers should expect fantastic raffles and door prizes this year, including a poker run in which the winner gets half the pot. The silent auction will also have great items from local merchants in which participants can bid.
