Sean Keenan Induction Dinner at Coyote Creek Golf Club-Valley Course in San Martin,
Todd Fairlie California.
Tony Kearns Santa Clara is proud to have both men’s and women’s teams that are
competitive in their respective leagues; a very attractive feature for many

Due to their club sport status, Santa Clara University provides very limited
financial support for these teams but expenses for coaches, uniforms, equipment

Lacrosse Program competitive on a national level, we need to support our teams
The 2008 Golf Classic will change its format this year. The silent auction,
raffle and hopefully a new hole in one contest will be held on Saturday in
addition to the 18-hole best ball tournament, the 50/50 cash prize putting
contest, casino hole, longest drive and closet to the pin contests. The induction
dinner for the 2008 Hall of Fame class will be held on Saturday night in the
Coyote Creek Banquet Hall immediately after the golf tournament concludes.
We hope to see you at both events this weekend to celebrate the 2008 Lacrosse
Golf Classic! If you unable to attend, we would be grateful for any assistance in
continuing to make the tournament a success. Donations for the silent auction
and raffle prizes, tee sign sponsorships, lunch or Hall of Fame dinner
underwriters or a monetary donation are greatly needed. Please contact Gary
Podesta at 408-209-5507 for additional information.
Thank you so much for your support and generosity!
