The TI Alumni Association is teaming up again with active TIers for the 15th Annual TIAA Charity Golf Tournament. The event is scheduled for Monday, October 20, at the Woodbridge Golf Club in Wylie, TX. It will benefit two worthwhile charities: the United Way and The Senior Source. Texas Instruments and the Texans Credit Union are underwriters for the tournament, making it possible for 100% of donations to go directly to the charities. More than 100 golfers are expected to participate.
For several years, TIers have held a golf tournament as a kickoff to the United Way Campaign, and donations by active TI golfers will again benefit that worthwhile organization. Contributions from individual retirees, former TIers, TIAA golfers and sponsors will go to The Senior Source. In last year’s tournament, more than $18,500 was raised for charities.
A benefit of the combined tournament is the opportunity to get better acquainted with active TI golfers and let them know about the TIAA and its programs. Over the past 14 years, the tournament has raised more than $300,000 for charities, thanks to the generosity of individual donors, corporate sponsors, and golfers. The Senior Source, now in its 53nd year of service to older adults in our community, is experiencing increased needs for its services, which include vital programs in protection, eldercare, advocacy, volunteer opportunities and employment services for seniors.
Retirees and former TIers are encouraged to help support this year’s tourney, whether golfers or not. Sponsorships are available for golf holes and carts. There are also opportunities for volunteers to help in contacting corporate sponsors or helping with the tournament logistics. Please contact the TIAA office at 214-567-8444 for information on volunteer opportunities.
The event will begin with check-in at 6:30 to 7:45 am with a shot-gun start at 8:00 am. Lunch will be served around 12:15 pm with awards following the tournament.
