Links for Learning 2011



The University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton (UACCM) Foundation is making preparations for its sixth annual “Links for Learning” fund-raising golf tournament. The three-person scramble tournament is scheduled for May 19 at the Morrilton Country Club with a 10 a.m. shotgun start.
The cost of entry for the tournament is $75 per person or $225 for each three-person team. Players will receive access to a golf cart, snacks and beverages throughout the day, lunch, access to an awards ceremony reception and a gift bag with each paid entry fee. The awards ceremony reception will be in the Morrilton Country Club dining room following the tournament, and prizes will be awarded for top scorers in three flights. There will be a hole-in-one contest, a putting contest, and chances to improve overall scores through donations. Door prizes will be awarded throughout the day in the clubhouse and prizes will also be given for longest drive and closest to the pin winners.
There will be a golf ball drop contest, which will allow tournament participants as well as the general public to purchase chances for numbered golf balls which will be dropped from the sky during the tournament. The owner of the ball that lands closest to the pin will win a $1,000 grand prize. Tickets for the contest are $10 each and will be pre-sold to the public beginning April 1 by calling (501) 977-2011. Tickets will also be available for purchase on the day of the tournament at the Morrilton Country Club.
The College Foundation is currently seeking sponsors in the form of Platinum ($3,500), Gold ($2,000), Silver ($1,000), Team ($500), Hole ($100) sponsorships. The benefits of each level of sponsorship are listed on the college Web site at www.uaccm.edu by clicking on “Foundation Info,” then “Links for Learning.” Team ($500) sponsors and above will each receive at least one free team entry valued at $225.
The tournament will fill when 36 teams have registered. Entry and sponsorship forms are available online at www.uaccm.edu or by calling Mary Clark at (501) 977-2011. Forms should be returned by may 16.
The UACCM Foundation, which is comprised of a volunteer board of directors, oversees the various fundraising activities undertaken on behalf of the college as well as the management and allocation of the funds received. The Foundation is a non-profit 501 (c) (3) corporation making most contributions tax-deductible.
