The fabulous atmosphere, food and drink at Seascape Golf Club made it easy for Texas Holdem’ players to settle in and compete for some serious bragging rights and impressive prizes donated by many throughout Santa Cruz County. A special thank you to Craig Robinson, Garrett Jewelers, The Holder Family as well as The Crow’s Nest, Cafe Rio, and The Hideout to name just a few for their generous donations to the cause.
Rich Seadler was the last man standing and took top prize at the tournament, followed by Jeff Zaharie, Jeff Harper, Charlie Scibetta, Dave Waite, Ken Kisner, Paul Crawford, and Steve Ghio who all walked away with a prize.
One hundred percent of the proceeds from the successful night will go directly to the student-athletes of this community, improving the quality of sports at Aptos High School and it’s feeder programs.
Recently, the Aptos Sports Foundation approved funding for 12 permanent benches to be installed at the high school tennis courts. We are also working to install scoreboards at the softball field and pool for water polo use.
In the near future, the Foundation hopes to support a digital marquee at the entrance to Aptos High School for announcements of athletic and various school events. Almost every high school in the tri-county area currently has some form of digital signage and Aptos deserves to promote the wonderful activities happening at the school and keep the community updated on what students are doing.
None of this would be possible without our community support, so if you would like to help, the ASF Golf Tournament is April 29, 2016. Or give a gift any time of the year through the Foundation’s new endowment fund.
