We are excited to announce the Utah Golf Marathon, scheduled for June 19th, 2013. This year, Alexander’s will be sponsoring the event to raise funds for the Utah Valley University Men’s Basketball team.
Golf fanatics and UVU wolverine fans will get the chance to show off their skills during the 12-hour, 54 hole event at the Links at Sleepy Ridge golf course in Orem, Utah. Teams register in groups of four, and only 20 team spots are available, so those interested should register quickly.
We hope that this year’s golf marathon will raise at least $20,000 for the Utah Valley University men’s basketball team scholarship fund. Funds raised will help the players stay in school year-round and find a better balance between athletic training and studying, leading to success both on and off the basketball court.
“We want to ensure our local university athletes are equipped for professional sports and training for a lifelong career afterwards," said Jeff Alexander, CEO of Alexander's. "We’re stepping up to help raise awareness and funds for the UVU Wolverines to help these young athletes achieve their educational goals."
The event begins with check-in and a continental breakfast at 6:30 a.m. and ends at 7 p.m. followed by an evening dinner and awards ceremony. Snacks and drinks are available to participants throughout the day. Teams of four are $1,250. Hole sponsorships and mulligans are also available for purchase online.
