Charity tournament provides scholarships for local students
Roseville, Calif.- The 16th annual Bill Santucci Memorial Golf Tournament will take place Friday, Sept. 27 at Sierra View Country Club in Roseville.
The charity outing is named in honor of Bill Santucci, a dedicated community leader for several decades in Roseville and Placer County.
An avid golfer, Santucci was one of the original founders of the tournament. This year’s tournament hosts include Carol Garcia, Sierra College Board Trustee, Julie Hirota, Board President of Roseville Joint Union High School District, and Placer County Supervisor Kirk Uhler.
The proceeds from the tournament – presented by Placer Vineyards – will be used for scholarships to help graduating Roseville Joint High School District seniors from the following schools: Woodcreek, Roseville, Granite Bay, Oakmont, Adelante, and Antelope. The annual tournament provides $1,000 scholarships to 25 deserving South Placer students.
“Bill Santucci was an avid golfer who looked forward to playing in this tournament that he helped establish for students going off to college from the South Placer region. He would be extremely honored to have his name attached to such a terrific community effort that helps promote higher education in the region.” .Carol Garcia
