Sam Thompson Memorial Foundation Hosting Golf Tournament On Thursday

RUIDOSO, NM–MAY 23, 2023–The Sam Thompson Memorial Foundation is hosting its annual golf tournament this Thursday, May 25, 2023, at the Links At Sierra Blanca Golf Course in Ruidoso, New Mexico.

Given the title of the 'Sam Thompson Memorial Foundation Wild Animal Par-Tee Golf Tournament', the fund-raising event is designed to raise money to provide funds to those in need throughout the horse racing community. Not only does the Sam Thompson Memorial Foundation offer up scholarships to those students with ties to the horse racing industry, the foundation also has a general fund that provides assistance to those injured or those in need in racing.

The annual event has garnered a reputation as one of the most fun tournaments to attend, with registration for the event will be starting at 8 a.m. on Thursday, as the tournament is set to start as a shotgun scramble at 9 a.m. Games will be available to play throughout the golf course, and there is a prize available for the best dressed golf in wild animal themed attire.

The Sam Thompson Memorial Foundation has pledged that all money raised through the event goes to those in need throughout the horse racing community. Prior recipient of assistance from the foundation, Bryce Bourdieu, will be at the tournament to thank our supporters, as will several of the Sam Thompson Memorial Scholarship recipients.

The tournament still has room for a few teams to participate in this fund-raising golf tournament. Those interested in entering a team in the event must call Laura Joiner to reserve at (760) 408-1199 to sign up or visit the Sam Thompson Memorial Foundation website at www.samthompsonfoundation.org.
