This year MLF teams up with Bidding for Good, a non-profit support site, to register golfers and coordinate the silent auction component of the classic.  Golfers can register and sign up at BiddingforGood.com/MLFgolf, to sponsor a tee or hole, and see and bid on some of the silent auction items one week prior to the event.

“We’re excited to offer an alternative means of participating in the event this year,” stated MLF Executive Director Dion Agee.  “Technology makes it possible for more people to support non-profits more easily.  Even if you can’t play in the tournament this year, you can donate, commit to a sponsorship or even bid on silent auction items.  The Bidding for Good technology will also allow for real-time bidding during the tournament which should make the event even more exciting.”

Early Bird registration is available through August 31st.  Players can register for $99 per person or $396 per foursome.  The tournament is a best-ball scramble with a 10:00 am shotgun start with on-site registration and continental breakfast available starting at 8:30 am for those who want to get in a little putting practice.

A Super Ticket will be available for $25, limited to one per player, with the Grand Prize being a new iPad.  There is also a raffle with multiple prizes with tickets sold on the course at all Par 3s by MLF Scholarship students.  Tee Sponsorships are $125 each and Hole Sponsorships are $300 each.

Several other sponsorships are also available for Breakfast, Lunch, Beverage, and Awards celebration.  Title Sponsors are Ron and Shirley Heck and the Putting Challenge sponsor is Ormat.   Dave Schacht of Sierra Star Golf Course coordinates all the course activity, including a “Beat the Pro” contest on Hole 2 and the Putting Contest with a guaranteed winner.
