2010 Charity Golf Tournament

We are looking for people interested in helping to organize the 5th annual ASCE Golf Tournament.

The date for the tournament is Friday, August 27th.

Tasks for those interested in helping with the organization include sponsorships, prizes, charity contacts, organizing games for the holes, and others. If you are interested in helping, please contact Scott Moeder at smoeder@gbateam.com or visit www.kcymg.com/golf/ for more information.

Royals Night 2010

This year Royals Night will be on Friday, June 25th for the game between the KC Royals and St. Louis Cardinals. Tickets are now available.

Please download this flyer for more information.

As always, the tailgate party will begin at 5pm and the game starts at 7:10pm. We are once again using this event as a fundraising opportunity for the KC ASCE Younger Members Group. As our attendance increases, so does the cost of our activities such as our kick-off meeting and our professional development opportunities. The money raised during the Royals Night helps to fund these opportunities and also helps to pay for our chairpersons to attend the ASCE leadership conference every January. Tickets may be purchased for the game and tailgate together ($40), or you may purchase just a tailgate ticket ($25). Thank you in advance for helping to support our organization.
