It is almost time for the return of the Westwood Baseball Booster Club Golf Tournament! After a year off for COVID, we are back and ready to raise some money for our team.
There is a ton of excitement around the Warrior Baseball program after a fantastic 2021 season. They ended the lengthy playoff drought, and are ready to make a big playoff run this year all the way to the Dell Diamond! We need to share this excitement with our community, and make this golf tournament a huge fundraising success.
The money raised at our previous golf tournaments has made a big impact for our team. Funds have gone towards building covered batting cages, improvements to the bullpens, artificial turf at home plate, team equipment, and so much more. There are still many improvements to be made at the field. There are plans to upgrade the lighting in the batting cages, putting in an artificial turf mound, new banners and signs around the park, updating the backstop behind home plate, and the list goes on and on. You can help us make a big difference for this team by participating in our golf tournament!
The tournament this year will be at beautiful Live Oak Country Club in Lakeway. It will be a great day of golf, tons of fun socializing outdoors with fans of Westwood Baseball, and raising much needed funds for our program. We need golfers, sponsors, and volunteers to make this event great.
RECRUIT PLAYERS – It is pretty simple. The more golfers we get to play, the more money we will make for the program. Please forward the golf tournament info to all your family, friends, co-workers, and acquaintances. Encourage them to sign up and play. This is our 6th tournament, and it has been a really fun event every year. The flyer for the tournament is attached. Feel free to email it, post it on social media, print it out and post it at work, at church, or anywhere that you think will help us get more players to come out. Most of our baseball players have select teams, personal instructors, or strength & conditioning coaches outside of Westwood. Please invite all of those people to come support Westwood Baseball. The absolute maximum number of players we can have is 144. Lets get to that number this year!
RECRUIT SPONSORS – At the end of the tournament every year, people have come up and said they wished they would have been a sponsor. We really want to increase the number of sponsors this year. So, please reach out to your work, local businesses, and anyone that you think would want to sponsor Westwood Baseball. There is a sponsorship document attached to this email.
DONATIONS – In addition to those options, we need donations for prizes like: gift cards, golf related items, or baseball related items, and donations for our gift bags like: coupons, small golf related items, and advertising freebies. Buying a tee box sign is the easiest way to be a sponsor. Signs are not restricted to only businesses. If you don’t play golf but want to help out, then consider buying a tee box sign. It can be advertising for a business, family name, or just some small words of encouragement for the Warriors. There are an unlimited number of tee box signs we can put out on the course. Don’t be that person that wished after the tournament they would have been a sponsor!
VOLUNTEERS – We are not able to put on this awesome event without volunteers. Please consider signing up to volunteer on the day of the tournament. We need people to help with registration, handing out gift bags, monitoring the silent auction, and most importantly out on the course running our contests. The Par 3 Challenges and Putting Challenge raise a large amount of money at every tournament. It is really easy to do. You get to spend the day outside on the course visiting with groups of really fun people who want to help the program and help them enter the contests. There is always a big sense of pride for those volunteers when we announce how much money each of the contests raised. Really has become one of the most anticipated parts of the tournament each year. Below is the link to the SignUp Genius page.
If you have any questions about the golf tournament, sponsor options, or volunteering please don’t hesitate to contact me. Hope to see you in Lakeway, and GO WOOD!!!
