What began as an excuse for friends to play golf and share a beer while supporting Humble High School scholarships in 1997 has grown to be one of the largest scholarship sources specifically for today’s Humble High graduates.
The 21st Annual Humble High School Alumni Association Scholarship Golf Tournament, sponsored by InvesTex Credit Union, will tee off Friday, April 5. The tournament is the primary source for alumni association scholarship funding. Over the past five years, more than $100,000 have been distributed to Humble High graduates.
Returning to the Atascocita Golf Club, host of one of the first events 20-plus years ago, the tournament will have some new and exciting features. The event will include raffle prizes, fun on-course activities, and a meal provided at the conclusion of play. Four-player team registration is $500, with individual-player registrations costing $130. A noon check-in will be followed by a 1 p.m. shotgun start for the four-person scramble event.
Dozens of local businesses, HHS alumni and other individuals participate through sponsorship opportunities. A platinum/tournament level sponsorship at $1,000 gains the highest degree of signage and recognition. A $500 gold sponsorship is available that includes a banner display, and for $100, individuals and companies can be a silver sponsor for an individual hole. Each level of sponsorship comes with recognition at the tournament and later when the scholarships are awarded. To register for the tournament online, go to weblink.donorperfect.com/hhsalumnigolf.
