Raising funds for school programs
Escapees (our endearing term for employees of Escape Technology) enjoy giving back to their communities. Last month many of us registered for a local fundraiser for the Sierra College Women's Golf Team. It was a great time, but more importantly it raised critical funds for the team. This year was a banner year. With everyone’s participation and support the tournament raised over $6,500, up 15% from last year. The tournament also had a record number of participants, with over 80 golfers! The money raised will help fund both the men’s and women’s programs for the 2013-2014 golf seasons.
This is our third year supporting the team at Sierra College in Rocklin. The Sierra College women’s golf team is a member of the Big 8 and a Northern California powerhouse. Since 2000, Sierra won six conference championships, one NorCal title and four top-four state finishes. In 2011, Head Coach Kim Silva took over a program from Hall of Famer Karen Linde that produced two conference MVPs and 25 All-Conference golfers.
