2010 Windy City Gator Club Golf Tournament

WGIC's Katie Karakosta has the great honor of being the Social Events Chair, and lead planner for the Windy City Gator Club, the local chapter of the University of Florida Alumni Association (both of our lead planners attended UF so it comes as no surprise that handling Gator events is right up our alley!).

We are currently in the beginning stages of planning the 2010 Windy City Gator Club Golf Tournament. Because this is a non-profit organization, resources are limited. Sponsors and donors will need to be contacted in order to elicit the funds necessary to pull off a successful event.

Our cause is simple: we are raising money for the UFAA Scholarship Fund to give deserving individuals a chance at a higher education and a shot at chasing their dreams. If you would like to help by way of donations or sponsorships please contact
Check back regularly for updates on our planning progress!

What we're doing now - 10 months out:

1. Gather information from last year's event - assess what did and did not work
2. Discuss with Windy City Gator Club Board of Directors what promotional and marketing strategies to use during football season to drum up event interest

3. Contact area golf courses for rate information and to schedule site visits

4. Decide on a final date for June 2010

5. Create budget template/s

6. Create registrant/sponsor/donor letter templates
