Have you ever dreamed of playing golf under the midnight sun?
Then join us for the 2nd Annual Klouda Classic Golf Tournament which will be held on July 8, 2017, in beautiful Anchorage, Alaska. The Anchorage Golf Course is framed by the magnificent views of the Chugach Mountain Range, the Anchorage city skyline, Cook Inlet, and Denali, the highest peak in North America. Designed by renowned architect Bill Newcomb, the 6,600-yard course includes blind tee shots and water hazards. All proceeds from the tournament will benefit the Bernie Klouda Memorial Student Scholarship Fund.
The American College of Apothecaries Research and Education Foundation recently established the Bernie Klouda Memorial Student Scholarship Fund, which will provide assistance to pharmacy students in financial need. The ACA Foundation has set a goal to raise $100,000 in order to create a permanent endowment for the fund. Your generosity in supporting this much-needed fund will ease the burden of future students and work to reduce barriers to their success.
