Leahy Tee-It Up Golf Tournament is Back

This tournament is back because local cutie, Joe Tresnit is here to stay and heading up, not only a fun reunion, but the annual Patrick and Erin Leahy University of Nevada, Reno scholarship fundraiser. All the proceeds from the Carson High School Class Reunion golf tournament will assist the Leahy family in raising funds for local students that cannot afford to attend UNR.

I absolutely love the entire Leahy family, but the courage that Lorraine Leahy displays has always made me work harder at being stronger in life. Come have a great time with your ex-classmates and support local students with college funding.

WHO: Carson High School Reunion – I am thinking 1985 grads because that is the year Joe graduated. I’ll give you more updates and keep you posted. But everyone is invited to the events at Mo & Sluggo’s and golfing, so graduates from 1977-1985, come on down.

WHAT: Golf, Mills Park picnic, Mo & Sluggo’s Reunion night, fun and family events planned.

WHERE: Silver Oaks Golf Course, 1251 Country Club Drive

WHEN: Friday, Aug. 13

COST: $50 ($65 after Aug. 5)
