Ames Golf and Country Club will host the AASV Foundation’s annual Midwest Golf Outing on Wednesday, August 22, in Ames, Iowa. The foundation invites AASV members, swine industry stakeholders, and their guests to participate in the 18-hole best-ball contest. Proceeds from the event provide funding for the foundation’s endowment. Forty-four golfers participated in last year’s event at the same location, which netted $10,875 for the foundation.
Golfer check-in begins at 9:00 am the day of the event. Coffee and pastries will be provided, along with an opportunity to hit a few practice balls on the driving range. The four-person team, best-ball competition begins with a shotgun start at 10:00 am. Box lunches and beverages will be supplied on-course, and a reception will follow the golfing to recognize team and individual contest winners. Registration includes 18 holes of best-ball golf, golf cart rental, morning refreshments, lunch, and the concluding reception with awards.
The foundation encourages AASV members to register a team (four golfers per team) to engage in the friendly competition. A golf invitation is a great way to recognize and spend time with those special clients, friends, or family members! Individuals and couples are also welcome to register and will be assigned to a team. Registrations may be submitted on the adjacent form and are due August 8. For more information, contact the AASV office: Tel: 515-465-5255; Fax: 515-465-3832; E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Proceeds from the golf outing provide support for the AASV Foundation as it seeks to “Ensure our future…create a legacy” for swine veterinarians. Income generated by the endowment enables the foundation to fund programs such as the Swine Externship Grants for senior veterinary students, travel stipends for students attending the AASV annual meeting, and funding for research with direct application to the profession.
