If you are planning to golf and have yet to email me your foursome or your group in need of extra players, you have until FRIDAY, MARCH 31 at 10:30pm to do so. I will be reaching out via email to those who have already RSVP'd.

Attached is the link to sign up and pay for those golfing and those sponsoring holes. If you are planning to play, please sign up and pay promptly.

We are in dire need of hole sponsors, so we would love if your family or business would like to sponsor a hole. Sponsorships are set at $100, but we can adjust this price as needed.


Chapel Challenge

For the past few years, the funds raised from the JRC Memorial Golf Tournament have been donated to the Student Memorial Chapel, now named the Samuel J. Cadden Chapel. Recently, a parent suggested that we put these donations towards the naming of a pew in the chapel. The donation required to name a pew is $25,000 and this money can be raised over time. An anonymous parent pledged that if our chapter were able to raise half of the funds by the end of the 2017 year, that they would match it! The pew would be dedicated to our chapter and JRC. We absolutely loved this idea and have decided to start the "Chapel Challenge". We currently have $1950 from last year's tournament that was never deposited, so we are already off to a great start. We hope to raise the remaining amount through this year's tournament and through donations throughout the year. If you would like to donate, please do so through the link below.


ATO Mothers Club First Meeting

The first meeting of the ATO mothers club is set to take place Saturday, April 8th from 10-11 am. The location is to be determined, but we hope to have it at the alumni center, downtown Clemson. For those that have contacted me regarding the club, please expect an email from Clare O'Shaughnessey about the meeting. If you are interested in attending, but did not reach out, please contact Clare to let her know that you would like to be included. Her contact information is included below.
