This cost includes a round of golf, a continental breakfast, lunch, two drink tickets, and admission to the awards reception with hors d’oeuvres, beer and wine, and the conclusion of an online auction. Registration and check-in begin at 9 a.m., followed by  shotgun start at 10 a.m.

“Our golf outing has  been an  annual event for over 20 years and today provides up to $30,000 annually to area students attending the University of Kentucky,” said Nancy Teegarden, club president. “The way of life for many families has been greatly impacted by COVID-19, and summer jobs students worked to finance their education were not available this year. Receiving one of our scholarships could ease the financial burden for a student now faced with a decision as to whether they can afford to continue their education.”

“This outing is something that has really become a part of our club over the years,” said Chris Winburn, co-chair of this year’s golf scramble. “Not only does it help us raise scholarship money, but it allows us to connect with our club members and it allows our members to connect with one another. It’s a day when alumni and fans get together for a good cause and celebrate something that we all love – UK. And hopefully have some fun in the process.”

This year’s Big Blue Sponsor is UK HealthCare and the Blue and White Sponsor is Selma Conrad.

Donations and sponsorships opportunities are still available.
