BAKERSFIELD, Calif. – CSU Bakersfield's men's and women's golf teams are hosting a private event to benefit the golf program on Friday, May 12. The Roadrunners invite you to join the celebration of their outstanding year with an evening that includes a gourmet dinner, drinks, a silent auction, and the presentation of team awards to the ‘Runners.

“Our dinner and auction is one of the golf program's biggest fundraisers of the year,” said CSUB's Director of Golf, Meghan Thomason. “As a community-funded sport, the golf teams rely solely upon the generosity of the community to exist.”

The ‘Runners invite you to join them in a celebration of the men's and women's golf teams as they highlight their seasons and contributions to the Bakersfield community. The evening will be hosted in the garden of the home of a CSUB golf supporter.

“Our hope,” Thomason continued, “is that members of the community and fans of CSUB Athletics will want to show their support for our program and join us in celebrating arguably the most successful season in CSUB golf's Division I history.”

Members of the community can aid the ‘Runners by attending the event on May 12. Single tickets start at $75 each while a table of nine can be reserved for $675. Sponsorship opportunities are also available at varied levels. For more information on tickets, sponsorship of the event, or the CSUB golf program, please contact Meghan Thomason at 661-654-3081 or
