 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
 Brendan O’Brien*      students applying for admission at Santa Clara University. In 2008, the
 Drew Whyte            women’s squad finished as the 5th ranked team and qualified for the WDIA

                       Due to their club sport status, Santa Clara University provides very limited
                       financial support for these teams but expenses for coaches, uniforms, equipment
                       and travel still must be covered. In order to keep the Santa Clara University
                       Lacrosse Program competitive on a national level, we need to support our teams
                       through fundraising.

                       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!
