The Friends of Manteca Parks & Recreation Foundation and the Manteca Parks & Recreation Department will be co-sponsoring their 7th Annual Swing for Youth Golf Tournament on Friday, July 24.

The Friends of Manteca Parks & Recreation Foundation will use funds from this event to assist the city in providing youth scholarship funds.

The Parks & Recreation Department offer scholarships to families for youth ranging from 5 to 18 years of age. Classes available for scholarship assistance would include: swim lessons, all youth sports, toddler art and exploration, toddler creative play, karate, judo, after school child care, youth art, dance, gymnastics and cheerleading classes just to name a few.

The entry fee for the event is only $75 and includes green fees, cart, continental breakfast, course beverages, hat, goodie-bags, snacks and a post tournament lunch at the golf course. They will beat the heat with a 7:30 a.m. shotgun start with registration beginning at 6:30 a.m. You can sign up as a foursome to a single and the format will be a best ball scramble.

Special activities during the tourney include: Chance to win Harley Davidson from Eagles Nest Harley Davidson in Lathrop, $600 cash prize for a hole-in-one sponsored by Uncle Franks Grill, prizes for Long Drive and Closest to the hole and much more.

Co-Sponsors for this event include Nolte & Associates, PG&E, Manteca Police Officers Association, Piper Jaffray, Richards, Watson & Gershon and Manteca Firefighters Union.

Charity golf tournaments are an American tradition. Nationally, there are over 140,000 charity golf outings with over 15 million participants raising almost $3 billion to support local needs and strengthen communities. This fun filled day of good natured competition provides not only a good time for the participants, but will help make quality youth programs and services to many families throughout our community.

If you would like more information on how to sign up you can contact John Boore at 825-2575 or you can go online to www.ci.manteca.ca.us/parks to download a registration form. If you can’t play that day and would like to support the youth scholarship program you can make a personal donation to the event.
