Golf with Lorena Ochoa
Sat, Jun 6, 8:30am-12:30pm
3,500 pesos for men
3,000 pesos for women
Ochoa won 27 tournaments and two majors and was the world’s number one ranking player for three years before retiring at age 28. Upon retirement, she dedicated herself to motherhood and to supporting underprivileged children through charity play and her foundation. The Lorena Ochoa Foundation primarily supports the La Barranca Educational Center in Guadalajara, which serves approximately 355 students in the region where Ochoa grew up. Her participation in the Ventanas fundraising tournament bolsters efforts by SMAFE to provide similar opportunities for children in San Miguel.
SMAFE’s mission is to support and invest in the education of children in orphanages and provide access to private primary, secondary, and higher education. But SMAFE goes beyond access. It delivers the tools for student success through technology, bilingual education, tutoring, and relationships with mentors. This process provides not only crucial academic preparation, but also instills critical self-esteem to empower tomorrow’s leaders.
The opportunity to meet Ochoa, in addition to supporting the education of underprivileged girls in the community, will be an event highlight for golfers and for sponsors. Golfers and sponsors will also enjoy an unmatched day of first-class golf at Ventanas de San Miguel Golf and Resort, the region’s most beautiful golf course, complimentary breakfast, golfer gift bag, snacks and refreshments, an awards lunch ceremony, and the opportunity to win prizes, such as a lot at Ventanas, US$50,000, a car or SUV, Ventanas Club membership, vacation stays, artwork, jewelry, and much more.
Entry fees for this year’s event are 3,500 pesos for men and 3,000 pesos for women. Additional guests may attend the awards’ lunch ceremony for 750 pesos. Organizers anticipate participation by up to 120 golfers. Golfers who have entered begin registration on June 6 at 7am and tournament play begins at 9am.
In addition, sponsor names and logos will be placed on the golf course as appropriate and appear in promotional materials based on sponsorship levels. Promotional materials may include billboards, newspapers, magazines, web and social media sites, newsletters, and radio or television spots.
