Les Eathorne Golf Classic Players, Sponsors & Volunteers,
We have some exciting news in regard to changes for this year’s event. First let me say thank you for all your support over this past 6 years. With your support we have raised more than $40,000 which has helped pay for summer league fees, new uniforms for both and girls varsity teams, training sessions and many more for the basketball program at Bremerton High and in the greater Kitsap area. In addition, we have also donated over $8,000 towards scholarships for BHS senior girls and boys basketball players to help assist them further their educations.
Starting with this year we will combine forces with former Gold Mountain Director of Golf Scott Alexander to offer a larger fundraising golf tournament. We will be merging our Les Eathorne Classic and a tournament Scott has been running for the past couple of years to finance the Bremerton High Boys and Girls Golf teams. This new tournament will continue to help fund Les Eathorne Scholarships each year, benefit the Bremerton High Basketball and Golf programs and will also benefit other sports at Bremerton High. As you know, Les was also the Athletic Director for many years and loved all sports so we are confident that he would be all in for us to broaden our outreach. The new event will be called the Bremerton Les Eathorne Golf Bash!
The money raised will continue to provide funding for Bremerton High and area basketball programs as well as Bremerton High golf. Each Bremerton High sports team will have a chance to either sell hole sponsorships or get teams to play in the event. This will allow them to be able to keep the funds that they are directly responsible for generating.
Our new combined tournament will still be held at Golf Mountain Golf Course, but will be held in early October rather than late June. We will utilize both of the courses and make it into one great event. The date for this combined event is for Oct 10th, so mark your calendars with this date and plan to come out to continue your support.
By running the tournaments simultaneously and at a later date we would reduce our overhead costs, create a bigger event that will draw more community support and would continue to benefit two great causes. We hope that you will find these causes worthwhile and continue to come out for a day of fun and fellowship to benefit Bremerton and other area youth sports.
