The Family YMCA of Los Alamos will host one of its biggest fundraising events of the season this weekend.
The Ed Griggs Memorial Strong Kids Golf Classic will be played at the Los Alamos Golf Course. Interested players still have time to sign-up for the event, which is scheduled for 1 p.m. Saturday.
The tournament, now in its fourth year, is scramble format and players can register individually or as a team. Registration is open through Friday at the YMCA.
In 2012, the YMCA raised approximately $17,000 with the tournament, which attracted more than 100 players.
Linda Daly, the CEO of the Family YMCA, said 174 individuals, including 80 kids, directly benefited from the Strong Kids program. Approximately $120,000 was used to subsidize activities for underprivileged individuals.
This year, Daly, said, the need is greater. The YMCA wants to raise $130,000 to benefit individuals, including those who use the Española Tennis Center and other YMCA programs, but fundraising has been lagging.
“We’re hoping for a strong turnout,” Daly said. “We feel very blessed all our major sponsors came back this year…and we actually gained a few more tee box sponsors.
