2nd Annual P.A.R.T.Y. Golf Tournament on September 21

The 2nd Annual P.A.R.T.Y. (Prevent Alcohol Risk-Related Trauma in Youth) Golf Tournament will be held on September 21st, at Empire Ranch.

The P.A.R.T.Y. Golf Tournament is a competitive and fun event which calls attention to the urgent need for teen injury prevention, thereby making entire communities safer from less accidents.

Teen driver crashes are the leading cause of death for our nation's youth. An overwhelming majority of these crashes are caused by inexperience or distractions, not "thrill-seeking" or deliberate risk-taking. The fatality rate for drivers ages 16 to 19, based on miles driven, is four times higher than for drivers ages 25 to 69. Cell phone use while driving is pervasive, according to reports from teen respondents of the National Young Driver Survey. 80 percent of teen drivers own a cell phone. Nine out of 10 have witnessed teen drivers talking on a cell phone while driving. These alarming statistics, coupled with other risky teen behaviors, are the reason why P.A.R.T.Y. is so passionate about expanding this program into every high school.

P.A.R.T.Y. needs your support as the demand is huge. The fundraising component is vital to their success in making the roads we share with teens safer for all of us day and night.

Golfers of all skill levels are encouraged to compete and enjoy a great day of golf while supporting P.A.R.T.Y at the same time. With box lunches provided, separate drink carts for the front and back nine, a delicious dinner at Empire Ranch and GREAT auction items, it's sure to be a FUN event! With so many fundraisers out there, they are doing their best to make this tournament one you will want to participate in every year. That's why they've asked local sports celebrities to golf with them, thereby drawing many to the tournament, attracting more sponsors and bringing in more funding to help them expand this program throughout the Sacramento region.

The tournament will take place on Friday, September 21st, at Empire Ranch Golf Club, located at 1620 East Natoma Street in Folsom, starting at 11:30a.m. with registration and warm up time. Box lunches will be passed out at 12:30p.m. with the scramble start time of 1p.m. The silent auction will open at 5:30p.m. along with no-host cocktails. Dinner will start at 6:30p.m., followed by the awards ceremony and sponsor recognition at 7:30p.m., and silent auction winners announced at 8:30p.m.
