The 2018 Cornerstone Golf Classic is coming up on Saturday, May 12th at Traces Golf Club. This is a significant event in the lives of our students, because the funds raised through this event offset the cost of summer activities for our students. Last year we raised nearly $10,000, dramatically reducing the cost of summer camp and our summer mission trip! We hope to raise even more funds this year, and we are asking for your help.
How it Works
In general, funds raised by the tournament are equally distributed among all of our students as a credit toward Creed Camp and/or the summer mission trip to Belize. However, to affirm those students who work diligently to promote the tournament, 50% of all sponsorship funds and 25% of all team funds raised by a particular student or his/her parents will go directly to that student as a credit toward their summer trips. That means, a student who recruits a single corporate sponsor ($500 total), has completely covered the cost for camp this summer. Pretty awesome!
We know the cost of summer activities can be significant, so this is an excellent opportunity for your student(s) to actively contribute. Current 6th grade students who will be entering 7th grade in the fall of 2018 can participate in summer events and recruit golf tournament sponsors as well. Below you will find links to download the sponsorship form and tournament brochure. We also have copies available in the Hub and church office. Sponsors can register by filling out the paper forms or directly on the website (link below, or click here).
How to Recruit Sponsors
Begin to pray for teams and sponsors for the Cornerstone Golf Classic. As you pray, invite your friends, family, and Journey Group to participate, either by playing, through sponsorships, or both. Likewise, you can ask your employer or other businesses to sponsor. Businesses and individuals alike can be sponsors for the tournament, just remember to ask your sponsor to list your name as the “student sponsored” on their registration form (paper or online) if they wish for a portion of the funds to be applied directly to your trips. Please remind each sponsor that their participation will directly impact the lives of our students this summer!
All sponsors and players must submit their registration and payment by Monday, May 7th.
