SJIFT SCHOLARSHIP GOLF CLASSIC
Date: Monday, November 6, 2017


Announcement for the 20th Annual SJIFT Scholarship Golf Classic!

Hi Fresno State Food Science Supporters!

We have to make a change in our venue due to an issue with the greens at Belmont Country Club. Unfortunately, Belmont will not be ready for our tournament, so we will be switching to a new venue  on a different date and time.

Our new venue will be one of the best golf clubs in the Fresno area, Copper River Country Club. Check out their website at www.copperrivercountryclub.com  This is a private club, and we will have the course to ourselves. The new date is MONDAY NOVEMBER 6. Shotgun Start will be 11AM. They have graciously agreed to honor our pricing structure we had with Belmont, so no changes there. The typical Fresno weather on November 6th is 75F and Sunny!

Copper River is nestled against the base of the Sierra Nevada mountain range on the north end of Fresno, California. It is a first class golf course and has a first class clubhouse and banquet facility.

Through this event, we have raised $143,000 over the past 19 years to use towards scholarships and other financial assistance in support of students in Food Science and related majors at California State University, Fresno. This is the major fund-raiser for the SJIFT.

Once again, we will have Roger Caldwell from Great Golf Events assist us with the tournament and to add some entertainment fun. We will have a $20,000 cash hole-in-one prize, as well as a Las Vegas Hole, putting contest before tee-off, closest to the pins, longest drive and most accurate drive contests, and the Ruiz "No-Wine-ing" hole where lousy players win a nice bottle of Fresno State wine!  

Your entry includes a box lunch, beverages on the course, two beer tickets and a great tri tip dinner and Fresno State Ice Cream after play. We will have plenty of beverages out on the course.

We have player sponsorships available at the “Scholarship”, “Semester”, “Eagle” or “Birdie” level, and we have many different levels of Non-Player Sponsorships to choose from. Sponsorships are the primary source of funds generated at this tournament.

If your company wants to be the major “Tournament Sponsor”, please call me and we can discuss the details!

Please see how to sign-up for our VIP package during online registration to buy mulligans and entry into the fund-raising holes. 

Thanks again for your past participation, and we look forward to seeing you at the Copper River Country Club on Monday, November 6th

Please also remember to bring a door prize to give out to participants during our after-dinner festivities!

ABOUT FOOD EVOLUTION (from  IFT.org)
The documentary film, Food Evolution, explores food-related challenges we face globally, the critical role that science will play in addressing them, and the public perceptions and misperceptions involving the science of food. 

IFT funded the documentary Food Evolution to inspire discussion and show the critical role science and innovation play in building a safe, nutritious, and sustainable food supply for everyone. This film is intended to contribute to a rational conversation about science, facts, and food. 

The world faces the challenge of feeding an estimated population of nine billion people in 2050. Because of the magnitude of this projection and the demand for safe and nutritious food that it brings, this issue needs to be considered from a thoughtful, global perspective. IFT approached several high-quality filmmakers, including Scott Hamilton Kennedy, and ultimately chose to work with Kennedy because he is known for his skill and integrity. 

While IFT funded the film, it represents the vision, full creative control, and final cut that Kennedy and his partner on this project, Trace Sheehan, have maintained throughout the project. Food Evolution focuses on the GMO debate because the director found it to be emblematic of the public misunderstanding about the science of food and food sustainability. IFT believes Kennedy’s film is thought provoking and an important contribution to gaining a better understanding of the critical role sound science plays in the global food system.
