Alonso Golf Fundraiser July 14

In an effort to connect with the community, the Alonso High School football program has moved its fundraising golf tournament to the Westchase Golf Club.

The second annual Alonso Ravens Kickoff Invitational is set for Saturday, July 14 at 8:30 a.m. Cost for the four-person team scramble is $100 per golfer, which includes greens fees, a cart and lunch.

Last year’s inaugural event drew 140 golfers to Innisbrook Golf Club in Tarpon Springs.

“It was a huge success, but one of our core beliefs is keeping things as close to Alonso as possible and contributing to our community,’’ said Ravens first-year head coach Ron Perisee, who was an Alonso assistant for the past two seasons.

“Westchase is a huge part of what we do. Many of our players—and future players—live in the community. We want Alonso football to have a strong presence in Westchase and be something we all can cheer for and rally around.’’

Perisee said his players will be heavily involved in the event, including being stationed at each hole to greet the golfers.

“We want to thank everyone who participates and the players are the ones who benefit,’’ Perisee said. “We plan on using the funds to buy more field equipment and finish the work we began on our weight room. None of that is possible without help from the community, so we want our players to realize that and show their appreciation.’’
