By ICC Media Relations

FULTON – Tupelo Country Club will be the site for the third annual ICC Golf Classic schedule for Monday, June 20th.

The annual fund raising four-person scramble will begin with registration starting at 10:00 a.m. and golf beginning at 12:45 p.m.

“There are some sponsorship opportunities and opening for teams still available for this year’s scramble, but they are filling up fast,” said Assistant Sports Information Director Adam Gore. “We encourage anyone interesting to help sponsor the tournament or field a team to contact any of our athletic staff as soon as possible so they can be a part of this year’s event.”

An awards dinner and silent auction will conclude the day.

“The silent auction is always a fun way to conclude the tournament, but it’s not limited to just the golfers,” said Gore. “The general public is welcome to come be a part of the auction and bid some one-of-a-kind items.”

Items from last year’s auction included an Alabama helmet autographed by Nick Saban, a football autographed by Bobby, Tommy, Terry and Jeff Bowden, a football autographed by Sean Payton, Dan Mullen, and Houston Nutt, basketballs autographed by Rick Stansbury, and Andy Kennedy along with various furniture items and deer and duck hunting trips.

Deadline to enter the four-person scramble is June 15th or when the 24-team field is filled.

Anyone interested in a sponsoring, fielding a team, or for more information should contact Sylvia Chamblee at 662-862-8122.
