  Marilyn Praisner Memorial Golf Tournament
The First Tee sold out its annual event again raising almost $32,000. This year was the inaugural tournament to honor Marilyn Praisner, the late County Councilmember, mother & grandmother as well as a first class friend of The First Tee. Marilyn’s grand-daughter, Kaitlin Klumpp, kicked off the tournament with an honorary drive that would have made her grandmother proud.
  The First Tee’s Fall Golf Classic
In honor of the late Montgomery County Councilmember, Marilyn Praisner, The First Tee’s Fall Classic Golf Tournament has been renamed as The First Tee’s Marilyn Praisner Memorial Golf Tournament. Marilyn was a friend, advocate and mentor to the organization. The board of directors and staff cannot think of a better way to honor Marilyn than continue to grow The First Tee so that all the county’s young residents can learn and embrace the core values and enjoyment of golf.

The tournament will be Monday, September 15, 2008 at Laytonsville Golf Course. It is a shotgun start with prizes for first through third place, Hole-in-One, Longest Drive, Closet to the Pin and Putting Contest. Last year, prizes included, but were not limited to, gift certificates from Raspberry Falls Golf & Hunt Club, Blue Mash Golf Club, P.B. Dye Golf Course, Blacks Restaurant Group, Washington Nationals tickets, Urban BBQ and Bethesda Golf & Tennis.

Sponsorship opportunities are available. If your company or you are interested, please contact Laura Sildon at 240.447.4646.
