Tee It Up for Foster Teens canceled for ‘09
Dear Friends of San Pasqual Members and Supporters,
It has always been our intention that every dollar donated to Friends of San Pasqual Academy by our dedicated supporters goes directly to benefit the foster teens of San Pasqual Academy. With this commitment in mind, we have made a change regarding our 2010 “Tee It Up For Foster Teens” golf tournament. There have been significant increases in expenses to use the current venue for our golf tournament. A large portion of these donations generated from this year’s tournament would have gone toward payment of the tournament expenses and not to our foster teens. We were not comfortable with the use of our generous donors’ funds and for that reason have made the decision to not have the “Tee It Up For Foster Teens” Golf Tournament, which was to be held this April. Plans are still in the making for the 2011 tournament and we will keep you posted as details develop. We greatly appreciate everyone’s support and dedication to our previous and future tournaments. We agonized over whether to skip this year, but find this decision to be in the best interests of our donors, participants and children at the Academy. We look forward to seeing you next year for another fun, successful and rewarding tournament.
But, there is good news! Recently, the Public Defenders Office announced that Friends of San Pasqual Academy will be the designated charitable organization for their upcoming golf tournament. It will be held March 31 at the River Walk Golf Course in Mission Valley. The entry fee to golf in this tournament is $135 per person and includes lunch and dinner. To attend the dinner only, there is a charge of $75 per person. Proceeds from this golf tournament will benefit the foster teens of San Pasqual Academy, which is wonderful and greatly needed.
We hope you will consider participating in the first San Diego County Public Defender Community Outreach Charity Golf Tournament. For more information, call Debby Syverson at (619) 435-4557.
Thank you for caring about our foster students. You have made many things possible through your generosity and participation.
Friends of San Pasqual Academy board members Joan Scott, Teri Summerhays, Dagmar Helgager, Lois Jones, Kathy Lathrum, Ann Boon and Debby Syverson
