Riders Classic set for July 10 at Stonebriar Country Club
Proceeds benefit scholarship program, Boys & Girls Club of Collin County
The Frisco RoughRiders, Double-A affiliate of the Texas Rangers,
are proud to announce the 10th Annual Riders Classic Golf Tournament
presented by Park Place Lexus, benefitting the RoughRiders Foundation
Scholarship Program and the Boys & Girls Club of Collin County’s bus
fund.
The Riders Classic will be held on Tuesday, July 10 at
Stonebriar Country Club on the Tom Fazio course. Team registration for
foursomes is $600 and individual registration is $150. Proceeds from
the tournament will benefit the RoughRiders Foundation Scholarship
program, which awards scholarships of $1,000 to 10 North Texas
graduating high school seniors. Proceeds will also benefit the Boys &
Girls Club of Collin County’s bus fund to provide resources to add
gently used buses to their transportation fleet.
“The Boys & Girls Clubs of Collin County serves 3,133 students
and has the potential to serve hundreds more but must have additional
buses to meet this need,” said Mike Simpson, CEO, Boys & Girls Clubs
of Collin County. “We currently serve about 2.2 percent of the
students in the school districts with whom we partner in Frisco,
McKinney and Plano. To serve a greater number of students who want to
be in our clubs, we must add new buses and replace older ones.”
The Riders Classic Golf Tournament is a four-player scramble
format tournament beginning with a shotgun start at 9 a.m. Breakfast
and lunch are included with entry into the tournament. A silent
auction and raffle will be held throughout the day with prizes awarded
at the end of the tournament.
“The Riders Classic is a great event at a fantastic venue for a
wonderful cause,” RoughRiders manager Joe Mikulik said. “It’s a
tremendous opportunity to connect with our fans, sponsors and the
entire community. It’s not a secret that I love golf and this is the
event I look forward to every year.”
Sponsorships are also available for businesses and individuals.
