Carlsbad CA— Carlsbad High School’s Dance Team Boosters are seeking sponsors and golfers, and are providing fabulous prizes at their 15th annual golf tournament on Monday, Oct. 19 at The Crossings at Carlsbad. Proceeds from the tournament support the Varsity Lancer Dancer team on their journey to the Universal Dance Association’s National Championships in Orlando, Florida In January.
The tournament is a best-ball scramble, with registration starting at 11 a.m. and a shotgun start at noon. One lucky person will walk away with $2500 cash. Cash drawing raffle tickets may be purchased directly through the Dance Team Boosters or online, at a cost of $20 each or 3 for $50. Only 500 tickets will be sold. Drawing will be held during awards dinner but winner need not be present.
Golfers can putt for a 5-Day Carnival Cruise for two to the Caribbean, Mexico or the Bahamas. Players will line up to putt and there will be a guaranteed winner. Cruise departs from choice of Long Beach, Miami, Galveston or Port Canaveral.
The event will also feature two hole-in-one contests. Skilled contestants could win a new Honda courtesy of Pacific Honda or a BMW courtesy of BMW of El Cajon, by sinking a hole-in-one on a designated Par 3. Other on-course events include the longest drive and closest to the pin contest for men and women, straightest drive and other unique contests, giveaways and entertainment while golfers enjoy the course’s oceans views and waterfalls.
After the best-ball golf tournament, the fun will continue with a cocktails, complimentary buffet dinner, raffle prizes, a silent auction, and special performances by the Varsity Lancer Dancer and Junior Varsity XCalibur Dance Teams.
According to tournament coordinator, Jon Whitehead, “we still need sponsors and donated items for our silent auction and raffle. We also have room for a few more golfers.” Whitehead also stated, “Our sponsors have a great opportunity here to increase their own business exposure as well as serve the community by supporting a local high school team of elite dancers.”
Sponsors will receive prominent signage at the tournament, GPS ads in every golf cart, a commemorative plaque and link on the Lancer Dancer website.
For the past several years, the golf tournament, private donations and other fundraising efforts have generated the funds needed to send the Lancer Dancers to Orlando, Florida, to compete in the UDA National Championships. The Carlsbad High School Lancer Dancers hold 10 National Titles and aim to bring back an 11th this year.
Foursome entry fee of $600 includes green fees, golf cart with color GPS, range balls, baggage handling and awards buffet dinner. Prices will increase after Oct. 1.
