From the National Junior Angus Board’s blazers to the color of the shavings in the show ring, it only makes sense Angus members would feel at home on the green of the golf course. The Angus Foundation is set to host the 19th annual golf tournament on July 16 at Quail Chase Golf Club, in Louisville, Kentucky, in conjunction with the 2019 National Junior Angus Show (NJAS). This event helps fund educational opportunities, research initiatives and Angus youth.
“Every year, we are impressed by the support and turnout we have for our Angus Foundation annual golf tournament,” said Rod Schoenbine, Angus Foundation director of development. “The Angus Foundation Golf Tournament is a fun opportunity to enjoy being with friends while supporting the Angus Foundation during the NJAS.”
Sponsorship options are available to state and regional Angus associations, individuals, businesses and farms and ranches. There are different promotional opportunities at eight sponsorship levels. Sponsors will be recognized in the tournament program; tournament luncheon; post-event news release; Angus Journal; and the Angus Foundation website, newsletter and annual report.
