Fundraiser for one of top college club teams in country

KINGSTON, R.I. – June 21, 2010 – The University of Rhode Island’s women’s ice hockey team will hold its 11th annual golf tournament Monday, July 19.

The proceeds will benefit the women’s hockey team, a club squad that relies on Student Senate grants and fundraisers to stay viable.

The daylong event will be held at the Winnapaug Country Club, 184 Shore Road, Westerly. Registration begins at 10 a.m., with a shotgun start at 11:30 a.m. The $125 fee includes green fees, golf cart, lunch and a steak fry at 4:30 p.m. There will also be live and silent auctions along with a raffle.

“Last year’s tournament raised nearly $10,000, which boosted our program financially and gave us the opportunity to train like champions,” said head coach Beth McCann. “We finished fourth nationally and captured our seventh consecutive Eastern Collegiate Women’s Hockey League championship.”

If you are not a golfer, you can join the fun at dinner for $40. Individuals and businesses may sponsor a hole for $100 or $200 for a flag. For $1,000, patrons can become power play sponsors. Such a contribution pays for one foursome, one flag, two tee signs and use of a golf cart with the company or individual’s name on it.

For more information or for questions, please contact head coach Beth McCann at 401-874-9217 or 401-369-0492. She can also be reached by email at
