Realtors golf tournament, auction is Aug. 9 and 10
Top auction items will be up for grabs Aug. 9 and 10 during the 36th annual Steamboat Springs Board of Realtors Scholarship Golf Tournament and Auction. The event supports the Realtors’ annual awarding of scholarships to high school seniors from throughout Routt County.
The local real estate community invites the public to attend this year’s deck party and auction, which features an array of auction items and two live bands. The deck party and auction starts at 5:30 p.m. Aug. 9 at Sweetwater Grill, 811 Yampa St. The cost is $35 a person.
The Scholarship Golf Tournament starts at 8:30 a.m. Aug. 10 at the Rollingstone Ranch Golf Club. The tournament will be played under a scramble format for four- and five-player teams. The pre-registration fee is $140, which includes the Aug. 9 deck party.
Proceeds from the tournament and auction support the Realtors’ 2012 college scholarship program. Due to the success of last year’s event, $15,000 in scholarships were awarded to graduating Routt County high school seniors last spring.
“The objective of the tournament and auction is to provide funding for the Realtors’ Scholarship Fund so we can make even more scholarships available to the many deserving students who need financial assistance in order to attend college,” said Jeff Preston, the event chairman. “We strongly encourage the public to attend our dinner and auction to bid on the outstanding array of items that have been donated by Routt County businesses and individuals.”
Registration forms are available at the Steamboat Springs Board of Realtors office at 625 S. Lincoln Ave. or at www.ssbr.org. Anyone interested in supporting the golf tournament and auction can contact Preston at 970-819-3944.
