Pearl & New Generations Golf Tournament @ Persimmion Golf Tournament
Aug 28 @ 1:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Mark your calendars! We have been invited by the Portland New Generations Rotary Club to partner with them in hosting a fun and important golf tournament. The mission is to raise awareness and resources to alleviate homelessness in Portland. The event will be held at Persimmon Country Club’s private golf course on Monday, Aug. 28, with lunch followed by a 1 p.m. shotgun start.

Of Portland’s homeless:

• 49% are unsheltered
• 57% are disabled
• 17% have young children
• 30% are women on their own
• 19% are older than 55
• 6% are younger than 24
• 11% are US veterans
• 27% have been homeless for more than 2 years

The Portland New Generations and Portland Pearl Rotary clubs have combined to serve the City of Portland for more than 47 years. Together we have donated thousands of dollars and volunteered countless hours to our community. One of PPRC’s visioning goals is to collaborate more with other Rotary Clubs. Both clubs share a vision of making a difference in the homeless community and we support many of the same non-profits. What a great opportunity to work together!

Portland Pearl Rotary hosted its own golf tournament for a couple of years, with modest success. New Generations has hosted this tournament at Persimmon CC for the past two years and it has grown in stature each year. By combining our effort and resources, the goal is to produce an event that has a much greater impact than we were able to produce on our own.

This is where we need your help! PPRC members are tasked with recruiting foursomes to play in the tournament. The cost is $500 per foursome or $125 per player. This includes 18 holes of golf, lunch, dinner, drinks and prizes. The more players that we recruit, the more money we can raise in support of homelessness. We have set a goal for PPRC to bring at least 10 teams to the event. We need your help to accomplish this. If you play or if someone you know or work with plays, invite them to join us. This can be an excellent opportunity to team-build with your colleagues, enjoy a fun day with clients, or a chance to get away from work for a while.

Another significant task is for us to recruit event sponsors. There are a number of sponsorship opportunities available including:

• Presenting Sponsor (1 Available) $2,500
• Drink Shack Sponsor (1 Available) $1,500
• Putting Contest Sponsor (1 Available) $1,000
• Hole in One Sponsor (1 Available) $500
• Contest Sponsors (4 available) $250
• Hole Sponsors (18 available) $150

Our goal is to fill all of the sponsorship slots. It will be a great opportunity for you or your company to gain great exposure while also supporting a very worthy cause.

We will also be looking for 5-6 day of the event volunteers to help out.
