Golfers and sponsors are needed to support a program to reduce youth violence. Project Safe Alternatives and Violence Education is operated by the Sacramento County Office of Education.

Students expelled from school because of on-campus violence are required to complete a violence-prevention program. Since 1998 2,500 students have taken part in Project SAVE.

An annual golf tournament is the main source of funding for this program.

The 11th annual Project SAVE Golf Tournament is scheduled for Sept. 23 at Valley Hi Golf Club in Elk Grove. Check-in begins at 8 a.m. The start is at 9 a.m.

Entry fees for the event are $150 per person or $600 for a foursome. Tournament hosts, contest sponsor and individual hole sponsors also are being sought.

Door-prize donations to benefit the program also are needed.

For more information about the tournament or to learn about sponsorship and volunteer opportunities, contact Cheryl Raney at (916) 228-2201 or craney@scoe.net.
