First and foremost, we want to express our appreciation to everyone who supports the ministry of Lutheran Athletics. Thank you for your help in providing a high-quality experience for our student-athletes, coaches, and community.
Our annual golf classic is our athletic department's biggest fundraiser of the year and every spring we look forward to gathering as a community in celebration and support of our programs. It is always a fun time together as we honor the past while also equipping our student-athletes for the future. As everyone is aware, the current circumstances have caused many important spring events to experience delay or cancellation, and we have been aggressively looking for ways to avoid adding our golf classic to that list.
Unfortunately, we have been forced into the conclusion that our 2020 Golf Classic is cancelled. All options and formats were considered in our effort to keep the tournament on, but everything about the experience would have been drastically impacted by current guidelines (less than half our normal amount of players allowed, limited number of tee times rather than a shotgun start, food and beverage restrictions, etc.). Additionally, no viable reschedule options are currently possible. As a result, refunds are available to anyone who has already registered for the tournament.
As mentioned, this is our department's biggest and most important fundraiser of the year. The event helps to successfully close out the current year's budget while also launching us towards a strong start to the upcoming year. We are tremendously grateful to anyone who would consider a donation to Lutheran Athletics in place of this year's cancelled event.
Thank you again for your interest and participation in our golf classic. We are honored by your support!
