Over 140 golfers gathered under cloudy skies to participate in Austin High School’s first annual Birdies for Bulldogs Golf Classic on President’s Day. A few downpours did little to dampen the enthusiasm generated from friends and supporters of AHS Athletic Booster Club’s fundraiser, which raised over $24,000 for the sports programs and individual sports of the golfers’ choice.
From Mulligans to Bulldog Drives, there were ample opportunities to improve scores while supporting the fundraiser, which was capped off with a buffet banquet, raffle and awards ceremony, complete with door prizes. Top raffle items included a trip to Acapulco, a year YMCA membership and a Skeeter’s suite.
Student and parent volunteers helped the event run smoothly and our sponsors made it all possible. Proceeds from this event will help support the AHS Athletic Booster Club as well as all of the individual sports at Austin High School. Some of the projects the proceeds will support are upgrading the athletic fields, training equipment, and sports equipment.
Birdies for Bulldogs owes a huge thank you to the sponsors for their generous support of this event.
