FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (June 12, 2019)
First Annual Women Of ALPFA Golf Tournament: Golf & Network
ALPFA OC hosts its first golf tournament
Description: Local non-profit launches golf fundraiser as part of professional development series
June 12, 2019- Tustin, CA. In its inaugural golf program, ALPFA Orange County presents the Inaugural ALPFA OC First Annual Golf Tournament with a 4pm shotgun start on July 27, 2019 at the Tustin Ranch Golf Club. Not many Latinas play golf – the goal is for members and friends to learn how to leverage golf as a business networking and leadership tool while raising funds.
The ALPFA OC First Annual Women of ALPFA Golf Tournament consists of a 9-hole tournament, putting contest, dinner panel, and silent auction. This fundraiser is part of the Women Of ALPFA Initiative focused on Latina leadership & professional development. VIP dinner keynote speaker and rocket scientist, Marleen Martinez Sundgaard, shared that she is “more familiar with miniature golf.” Women golfing is akin to using the English language to conduct business globally – golf is the sport of business. The dinner panel features VIPs from CBRE, Comerica Bank, HACE, and UnitedHealth Group. We invite the community, professionals, corporate members, business owners, colleagues, friends and supporters to leverage golf skills, leadership & sharpen networking skills on the greens. Silent Auction features HACE Women’s Leadership Program in Los Angeles geared to empower high-potential Latina professionals at mid-management experience level executives valued at nearly $3,000.
The goals for the ALPFA OC First Annual Women of ALPFA Golf Tournament are to raise funds for leadership and professional development: enable 4 students and 4 professional members to attend the ALPFA National Convention in early August, as well as provide financial awards to students at the End-of-Year Gala to subsidize their continued education.
