Duff Shaw Classic Set for December 12th

October 27, 2011 in 2-year, events

Duff Shaw Classic set for December 12 at North Ranch Country Club.

The Golf Course Superintendents Association of Southern California (GCSASC) will hold its 20th Annual Duff Shaw Classic December 12, 2011at North Ranch Country Club in Thousand Oaks, Calif. Duff Shaw Classic is the fundraiser for the association’s benevolent fund that has raised nearly $900,000 to benefit GCSASC members and fellow industry professionals in times of need.

The Duff Shaw Classic started as a fundraising event to benefit the family of GCSASC member Duff Shaw (Penn State 2-Year Turf Alum, class of 1986) who succumbed to his battle with cancer.  With the support of the GCSASC, his daughter Erin is able to attend Tulane University this year without the burden of tuition.  Sadly, Erin also lost her mother to cancer this past year.

The Duff Shaw Classic has continued to support the GCSASC fundraising efforts for its benevolent fund the past 20 years, supporting its members in times of need. In addition to the golf tournament, which begins at 7:30 a.m., Dec. 12, and the live auction that follows play, the Duff Shaw Classic will also include a 20th anniversary gala/holiday party, Dec. 11 at the Hyatt Westlake Hotel in Thousand Oaks, Calif., beginning at 5:30 p.m.

The goal of this year’s event is to raise $100,000 to reach $1 million in total donations over the 20 years of the benevolent fund.

Sponsorships and other donations are available for the event. Contact the GCSASC at 310-528-0723 or cyndy@cmnsupt.comfor more information.
