CMU business group plans benefit golf tournament

Registration is underway for an annual benefit golf tournament organized by the Future Business Leaders of America-Phi Beta Lambda at Colorado Mesa University.

The FBLA-PBL Golf Tournament is set for April 12 at Adobe Creek Golf Course in Fruita. Check-in will begin at noon, with tee off at 1 p.m.

The tournament will cost $400 for teams and $100 for individuals. Registration includes green fees, golf carts, dinner and an awards ceremony.

Halllam and Associates Insurance Agency will sponsor a $10,000 hole-in-one prize. Hole sponsorships also are available for businesses at five levels.

To register or obtain more information about the tournament, contact Currey Ventling by phone at 589-5240 or email at clventling@mavs.coloradomesa.edu. Register online through the website located at www.supportingcmu.com/events.

The FBLA-PBL helps students apply what they learn in the classroom to real world situations through leadership and networking opportunities as well as community service and competition.  Proceeds from the golf tournament will help students participate in state and national academic competitions.

“The CMU Future Business Leaders of America organization stresses the importance of students and community business leaders interacting and forming lasting relationships.  The annual tournament not only provides a way for students to take part in state and national academic competition, it also provides valuable outreach to the business communities they may one day be a part of,” said Deborah Parman, a CMU professor who serves as an adviser to the group.
