Superintendent’s Scholarships Golf Tournament
A big Thank You to all of our teams, sponsors, donors and volunteers who contributed to the success of the 19th annual TCU-Superintendent’s Scholarship Golf Tournament, held on May 16, 2012, at Erskine Park Golf Course. We’re still calculating the income from the tournament, but hope to match or surpass last year’s fund-raising effort. All proceeds, of course, are used to support the Alumni Association’s scholarship program. Bob Goodrich, who has been chairman for the past 19 years, has announced that he will turn the reins over to a new chairman for 2013. We appreciate all of the hard work he has done over the years to make the tournament such a success.
The 2013 Tournament has been scheduled for Wednesday, May 15, 2013, at Elbel Golf Course. Please note the change of location. Prices will be in the same range, but there could be some changes in the team packages. The golf committee has been meeting since August. Continue to watch this space up updates as details are decided.
We were pleased to announce that we raised more scholarship money last year than we had in past years. The purpose of the tournament is to raise funds to award four $4,000 scholarships to graduates of our schools enrolled in institutions of higher learning. The remainder of the profit goes into PLAN2000, a scholarship endowment fund committed solely to scholarships in perpetuity, and the general fund used to underwrite educational and Association activities. None is used for personal expenses of board members. The Alumni Association awarded $25,000 in 2011 in new scholarship money to local students.

New refreehments provided by Papa Murphy’s Pizza went over big with their tasty pizzas. The Hacienda again was a very popular refreshment oasis. They served margaritas and other refreshments at Hole 6. The hole was so popular it created backups at times as golfers waited to be served. Those attending also feasted on brats donated by Stanz Foods, a long-time donor for the golf tournament. Also served were burgers, chips, doughnuts, South Bend Chocolate Company candy, Coke, and bottled water. Raffle ticket prizes this year included dining at Sorin’s, Trio’s, Siam Thai Restaurant, LePeep, Barnaby’s and other local establishments. Raffle ticket buyers received a free car wash for each ticket, as well as discounted Ziebart services, courtesy of Dave and Susan Nufer. Adidas-Notre Dame was very generous in its donation of ND apparel for prizes. We are most grateful to all of our donors and sponsors.
Bob Goodrich, who chaired the tournament committee since its beginning 19 years ago, announced his resignation after the 2012 event. We are grateful to Bob for his many years of successful service. Susan and David Nufer have accepted the responsibility for the 2013 tournament, and planning already is under way. Stay tuned.
