A Special Letter from our co-chairs

Dear Sponsors, Players, Volunteers
…better said, FRIENDS,

Since its inception in 2003, the Arthur O’Krent Golf Classic has raised more than $1.3 million for the American Heart Association, and has helped provide AEDs, CPR training kits to schools, and funding to the F.A.S.T. program for stroke-awareness in San Antonio. These results are because of YOU and we cannot thank you enough for your ongoing support.

While this year’s tournament/NON-tournament may look a little different, our need to show support for the American Heart Association and our community matters more than ever. We understand that during these extraordinary times everyone has unique circumstances and although we hope you can participate this year, please know that we are humbled by your past involvement and understand if you are unable.

So….in doing our part to not encourage large gatherings and practice social distancing, we will NOT be holding a tournament this year. Rather, the 2020 “Covid Edition” of the Arthur O’Krent Golf Classic will be offering our traditional Sponsorship levels at a reduced donation (please see attachment for levels). Every individual “player” from the Sponsorship “Team” will receive:

• A certificate for one (1) round of golf at La Cantera (either Resort or Palmer Course)
• $25 credit for on-the-course food/beverage on the day you play
• 15% discount on merchandise in the pro shop on the day you play
• PLUS: One entry in the Super Raffle/player (value $100 each)
• Tournament gift

To sponsor, please visit the sponsorship tab above.

If you would like to play on the original tournament date, October 12, there will be a limited number of tee times blocked off so that we may all socially distance and play together on the course! If you are interested in playing on the 12th please contact Sam O’Krent at 210-227-7387 or sokrent@okrentfloors.com

In lieu of the tournament’s wrap-up party Fiesta dinner, a Zoom call will be held to announce the Super Raffle winner. If you have purchased a raffle ticket, you will receive an email before the event with the Zoom information.

We are excited to announce METHODIST HEALTHCARE and METHODIST HEALTHCARE MINISTRIES
as our Title Sponsors for the 7th Year! Not only do we thank them for their dedication to HEART, but also, recognize all they continue to do on a daily basis with their unyielding commitment through COVID-19 in saving lives and supporting our community.

On behalf of the entire Arthur O’Krent Golf Classic committee, we extend our deepest gratitude for your generous and steadfast support. MOST importantly, we wish you and your families’ good health and easy navigation through these unprecedented times.

PLEASE SAVE THE DATE FOR NEXT YEAR, October 11, 2021

Thank you! Your Co-Chairs, Margie & Sam O’Krent
