For over 2,700 students in Steuben County, JA programs are an exciting addition to their classroom curriculum. They are preparing for economic success, and they are discovering the connection between what they learn in school and how it can be applied in the real world.

Pro-Am Invitational: June 12th & 13th 
Glendarin Golf Club, Angola, IN

ProAm Registration Button

We kick off the event Monday evening, June 13, 2016 with registration, the pairings party and a prime rib dinner provided by Caruso’s. Tuesday, June 14, 2016 is the golf event with registration and breakfast starting that morning and a shotgun start. Concluding golf that afternoon, there will be a lunch buffet provided by Caruso’s and awards ceremony.

As we do every year, we will offer the opportunity to sponsor a Pro for only $150 if your full $1,100 team entry fee is received by June 1st. Teams are registered on a first come, first serve basis and because we are sure to reach our cap of 32 teams again this year, we encourage you to secure your team with a deposit of $275 by June 1st. All entries and sponsorships listed in green need to be paid in full by June 1, 2016.

Please note that even if you are unable to participate, donations of any amount will help us reduce our cost and allow us to impact more youth that participate in the Junior Achievement programs that operate in Steuben and East/Central DeKalb County.

We are excited about this year’s event as professional golfers participate from the Women’s US Open, LPGA Tour or Futures Tour, or as well as the past winners of the Big Break.
