Fundraising events are critical to our annual financial planning at SBJSA and represent a key ingredient in keeping both our camp tuition and Community Boating fees at affordable rates for families, as well as helping to fund necessary maintenance and improvement projects. They are also important to the ongoing legacy and feeling of family that comes with being a part of the SBJSA community.
Since 2011, Sodus Bay Junior Sailing has organized and hosted an annual golf tournament fundraiser at the beautiful Sodus Bay Heights Golf Course, overlooking Sodus Bay. In 2014, the tournament was renamed the SBJSA Max Buzzell Memorial Golf Tournament in memory of Max Buzzell, an SBJSA camper, instructor, race coach and collegiate sailing team captain, who we lost unexpectedly and who clearly demonstrated all the values and love of sailing that we hope to instill in our campers. The tournament is held in June on the Monday before our camp opens. This year, unfortunately, in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, the Tournament, originally scheduled for Monday, June 15, 2020 HAS BEEN POSTPONED to Monday, August 17, 2020, so please mark your calendars now! More details and registration reminders will be forthcoming.
An 18-hole round of golf (with a cart) and a delicious dinner afterwards is only $110 per person or $425 for a foursome. Dinner tickets for those who don’t wish to golf are also available for $50. Foursomes are spread around the course for a simultaneous T-time start at 1 pm, enabling all golfers to finish the course and be back at the clubhouse for Happy Hour starting at 4:30 pm. There are numerous games and other activities at many of the holes to enliven the friendly competition. In addition to prizes for closest to the pin, lowest individual and foursome scores, hole-in-one, etc., there are a number of raffle and door prizes that will be awarded, including a 50/50 prize. Tournament sponsorships at various price points and exposure are available and encouraged, from $150 to $1500.
