The Visalia Chamber of Commerce and the Leadership Visalia class of 2016 will co-host the 9th annual Leadership Visalia Golf Tournament March 24 at Valley Oaks Golf Course.
The annual event raises funds to support leadership education in Visalia. Leadership Visalia is a 9-month program that explores community development, and personal and professional leadership issues. More than 350 participants have graduated from the program.
Graduates of Leadership Visalia have gone onto become city council members, school board members, planning commissioners, county supervisors, state legislators, members of non-profit boards, officers of corporations and board members of the Visalia Chamber of Commerce.
This year’s golf tournament will include: a putting challenge, closest to the hole challenge, hole in one competition and the longest drive competition. Other fun features include a gun-shot bump up hole and prizes for the top finishing teams. Donated items will also be raffled off to raise funds for the 2017 Leadership Visalia project.
Sponsorships and player opportunities are available by calling the Visalia Chamber at (559) 734-5876 or visiting www.visaliachamber.org/golf
