    The Northwest Oregon Sub-Section of AWWA is hosting its 22nd annual golf tournament to benefit Water for People (WFP). These funds were contributed to Water For People for general project support for water supply and sanitation projects throughout WFP’s action countries. Sponsorship of a hole costs $250. This includes the cost of a sign made with your company’s name to be placed at a tee box. If your company sponsors a hole, we will reserve a spot for you and your guests (up to one foursome) to... play in this tournament. Note, however, that entry fees are not included as part of the sponsorship. Sponsorship of carts is also available as an alternative to (or in addition to) a tee sponsorship. $100 will sponsor two golf carts, with company signs placed in each cart. Entry fees are $80 per person and include green fees, cart rental, lunch, and door prizes at the close of the tournament. There will also be KP and longest drive prizes for the talented and/or lucky. We truly do appreciate the support you have provided in the past and hope that you are able to do so again this year! moreless
