Scott Schauer is hoping for a “win-win” outcome with a golf tournament to honor his father and support a local nonprofit organization this fall. The Jerry Schauer Golf Invitational Golf Tournament is set for Saturday, Nov. 16, at 10:30 a.m. at Robinson Ranch Golf Club, with all proceeds benefiting the Michael Hoefflin Foundation for Children’s Cancer. Foursome tickets are available for $600. Individual golfer tickets are $175.
Schauer is former executive director of the foundation, and said his father, who has himself been battling cancer, is a longtime backer of the foundation and wanted to do something to raise support.
In addition to a day on the greens, the tournament will wrap up with an awards dinner and an auction. ABC7 sports anchor Curt Sandoval will serve as master of ceremonies. Schauer said his father is hoping to feel well enough to attend.
“The love of his life has been his wife and golf,” Schauer said. “This is just a win-win opportunity that we’re excited to get off the ground.”
With a target of attracting 100-150 golfers, Schauer hopes the tournament raises anywhere from $25,000 to $50,000 to support the foundation.
Foundation officials were heartwarmed when Schauer told them his idea for the golf tournament.
“I think it’s amazing. Scott has always had the Michael Hoefflin Foundation first and foremost in his mind,” Executive Director Gillian Stone said. “He’s passionate about what he’s doing.”
Stone said fundraising efforts are crucial for the organization, and said there is a constant need for purchasing grocery cards, parking passes and gas cards to provide to families.
There are a variety of sponsorship opportunities ranging from $10,000 to $300 available, including Presenting Sponsor, Title Sponsor, Major Sponsor, Golf Cart Sponsor, Awards Ceremony Sponsor, Closest to the Pin Sponsor, Hole in One Sponsor, Longest Drive Sponsor and Hole Sponsors.
