Rancho Murieta Country Club hosts the 10th annual "Tee Up Fore a Cure" tournament benefiting the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation Sunday, Oct. 12. Last year the tournament raised more than $50,000 for the cause.
The tournament is open to all golfing members of the club and their guests. The entry fee is $65 per member and $130 per guest. The cost includes carts for guests, wine and dinner.
The day begins with registration, opening of the silent auction, and a putting contest from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The golf format is a four-person scramble shotgun. Tournament play begins at 1 p.m.
After golf, there will be no-host cocktails and the silent auction will continue. Dinner at 6:30 p.m. will be followed by the live auction, awards and raffles.
Since the golfing field is usually sold out, dinner-only guests are encouraged. The cost is $45 per person. Entry forms may be obtained at the Country Club office.
The top raffle prize is a new 2008 Columbia ParCar Eagle-LE Golf Cart.
Raffle tickets are $5 and are now available at club events or by contacting Lee Holm, 354-8756, or Marilyn Moore, 354-8472.
Auction items include winemaker and gourmet dinners for eight to 10 people, a five-night Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor condo golf package and seven-night Las Vegas resort package, spa and dining certificates, and a golf
outing at the Olympic Club San Francisco with Murietan Don Thames, who competed in the 2008 U.S. Senior Open Golf Tournament.
