31st ANNUAL PLA GOLF CLASSIC
Philmont County Club
Huntingdon Valley, PA
Monday, October 16, 2023
Dear Friend of Lacrosse:
On behalf of the Philadelphia Lacrosse Association, I would like to invite you to participate in the 2023 PLA Golf Classic to be held on Monday, October 16th at Philmont Country Club in Huntingdon Valley, Pennsylvania. We are excited to return to Philmont, which hosted our event in 2000, 2009 and 2010. Philmont’s North Course is ranked among the great traditional golf courses in the Philadelphia region and is regarded as a “must play” William Flynn-designed venue.
Your participation will support the PLA’s nonprofit mission, as a chapter of US Lacrosse, to promote the game of lacrosse in the Philadelphia and Eastern Pennsylvania, particularly our New Start Program, which provides technical and financial assistance to new lacrosse programs. Last year’s PLA Outing at White Manor featured 100 golfers and 63 corporate and individual sponsors and raised over $25,000. The proceeds from the outing help the PLA to do the following:
- Support the PIAA Public Lacrosse League and youth and middle programs in Philadelphia and beyond (including Eyekonz, Harlem Lacrosse, Youth Mentoring Program and others).
- Continue our stick donation and refurbishing program, which benefits teams in the City and Greater Philadelphia;
- Organize/underwrite PASLA’s High School Awards Recognition Banquet;
- Conduct/sponsor high school and youth coaches’ clinics; and
- Promote diversity and inclusion in the sport.
Attached for your reference is a flyer with more information regarding the event and its festive format. We would welcome your and your company’s participation and sponsorship to help ensure the outing’s success. All sponsors will be recognized prominently in PLA communications.
Please reserve your spot in the outing by completing the registration form and returning it to me as soon as possible, but in any event before Wednesday, October 11th. If you are not a golfer or cannot attend the golfing activities, you are welcome to attend the cocktail reception and banquet that begins at 5:45 pm. Space in the outing is limited and registrations will be processed on a first come, first served basis.
As in the past, the PLA Golf Classic promises to be a fully subscribed and memorable one. So please come out, catch up with good friends and join the fun, and, at the same time, help make it possible for even more boys and girls in our region to discover the joy of America’s native game. Hope to see you there, thanks for your consideration and continuing support.
Chair, PLA Golf Classic
