New Format for Annual Charity Golf Tournament

Jul 29, 2016

The TI Alumni Association (TIAA) is teaming up again with active TIers for the 17th Annual TIAA Charity Golf Tournament, but with a new format. There will be two flights in the tournament; one for Retirees and one for Active TI golfers.

There will be awards for winners in each flight. The event is scheduled for Monday, October 24, 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. Over the past years, the tournament has raised more than $350,000 for charities, thanks to the generosity of individual donors, corporate sponsors, and golfers. The Senior Source, now in its 55th 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.

Golfers will check-in beginning at 10:00 am, with a shot-gun start at 12:30 pm. Lunch will be served beginning at 11:00 am, with awards following the tournament.
