SEEAG Seeking Sponsors for 7th Annual Agricultural Day Golf Tournament, June 26

Individuals and businesses can show their support for agriculture and agricultural education by becoming a sponsor of the 7th Annual Agricultural Day Golf Tournament, Monday, June 26 at the Spanish Hills Country Club in Camarillo. Proceeds will go to Students for Eco-Education & Agriculture (SEEAG).

“It’s important to educate school children not only on how their food is grown but also about the many and exciting career opportunities available in the ag industry right here in Ventura County,” says Mary Maranville, founder and executive director of SEEAG. “The money raised through the Ag Day Golf Tournament helps us reach students through our elementary and middle school programs.”

Sponsorship levels range from $200 to $5,000. The cost for individual players is $250 and includes green fees and cart, 18 holes of golf, continental breakfast, lunch, cocktail reception, prizes and awards dinner. In addition, tasty farm-fresh snacks and drinks at different holes will be prepared and served throughout the day. “The tournament will be bigger and better than ever with farm-to-table bloody marys, berry elixir, hard lemonade bars, lots of games and prizes and Pin-Up golf,” says Maranville. Items for a silent auction are also needed.

“The tournament is a great way to show appreciation to our local growers and to ensure that a new generation is ready and eager to be part of this vital industry,” says Maranville.

Golf check-in is at 8:00 a.m. with a shotgun tournament start at 10:00 a.m. For more information, contact Caitlin Paulus at 805-901-0123, [email protected] or go to http://www.seeag.org/agricultural-day-golf-tournament/.
