Tee Off for Haas School's Youth Mentoring Program, Nov. 12
October 08, 2012
With several members of the Oakland A's also hitting the links, the Young Entrepreneurs at Haas (YEAH) mentoring program for under-resourced youth will hold its second annual golf tournament at Sequoyah Country Club on Monday, Nov. 12.
YEAH attracted 84 golfers and raised $30,000 at its inaugural tournament last year at Sequoyah's golf course, a challenging par 70 for men and par 72 for women, tucked away in the Oakland Hills.
Similar to last year, Charles “Chili” Davis, a three-time baseball all-star, will participate in the tournament and is an honorary tournament chair. Davis is a three-time World Series champion and a hitting coach for the Oakland Athletics, the newly crowned American League West Champions. Davis will be joined by other members of the A's organization, who will add to the festive atmosphere of this tournament.
YEAH's 23-year-old program serves middle and high school Bay Area youth. One-hundred percent of students who complete YEAH's four-year program graduate from high school and attend college, usually as the first person in their family to do so.
Last year's top sponsors included cPrime; Luther Burbank Savings; William R. Coke; Morgan Securities and JP Morgan Chase; and Larissa Roesch, MBA 97, and her husband, Jason Crethar.
