Alle-Kiski Society Alumni Golf Scramble set for Aug. 9

Unlike the U.S. Open at Merion Golf Club in eastern Pennsylvania, alumni and friends of Penn State New Kensington do not have to qualify for the Alumni Golf Scramble at The Links at Spring Church. All scratch golfers, daily duffers and weekend warriors are prequalified to participate in the Alle-Kiski Society's 14th annual golf tournament at 11 a.m. Friday, Aug. 9, at the home course of the campus golf team in Apollo, Pa.

While the Open features the best players in the world, the scramble features the best Penn State alumni and friends in the world. The $110 fee includes green fee and cart, lunch, dinner, prizes and refreshments on the course. Participants can form their own foursome or a group can be formed for them. Various golf packages are available including tournament sponsorships, foursomes, tee sponsorships and "dinner only." Tee sponsorships are available for $100. Upper-level sponsorships for the tournament, dinner, lunch and beverage cart run from $500 to $3,000. Donations for door prizes always are welcome. Last year, the tournament raised a record $9,400 as 83 alumni and friends participated in the outing.

Proceeds benefit the Alle-Kiski Society Endowed Scholarship, which will award $3,600 to Penn State New Kensington students this year. Since 1999, the society has awarded $36,000 to 45 students. For information, contact Bill Woodard at 724-334-6049 or
