Thanks to the member support of STXLAGA, we made charitable contributions to two great initiatives this year!
STXLAGA contributed a gift of $1,050 to the Texas Golf Association “Breaking 100” Campaign, $350 supporting STXLAGA Members Karen Northcutt, Donna Brady and Terry Dukes. These players have committed to playing 100 holes of competition in 2016 and highlighting the competitive opportunities available for women in Texas.
The Women’s Texas Golf Association was founded 100 years ago to host a State Amateur Championship. Since the inaugural State Amateur in 1916, the TGA has added six other championships designed to offer players of all ability levels from all over the State to test their game, achieve their goals, and learn from other great competitors.
We also contributed $350 to the TGA Foundation Junior Girls Travel Fund. This program was established in 1986 to offset expenses for girls residing in Texas, age 17 and under, who qualify for the US Girls Junior National Championship. The Nez Muhleman Golf Tournament better known as “The Nezzie” was held on June 7, 2016 at Riverbend Country Club and is the main fundraiser for the Travel Fund. If you are interested in making a donation to the Travel Fund contact Ellen Earle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
