June 18, 2012 - PRLog -- Nestled within 200 acres of majestic oak trees and rolling hills within San Antonio’s Southwest Texas Medical Center, Oak Hills Country Club will be the site for the Alamo Area Council, Boy Scouts of America Charity Golf Classic on Monday, October 29th.  Oak Hills is one of the most storied and respected golf courses in the country and one of San Antonio's most admired private country clubs.  

“Oak Hills is the perfect location to hold the Boy Scout Golf  Classic since, this year, the Alamo Area Council BSA celebrates 100 years of service to our community and to kids,” says Jimmy Allen, Golf Committee Chairman, Council Executive Board Member, and Group Executive Vice President at Broadway Bank.  

Oak Hills will play host to Scout supporters and sponsors to raise money for the Boy Scout ScoutReach program.  ScoutReach is an in-school scouting program that serves over 4,000 at-risk youth.  Utilizing ScoutReach funding, the Alamo Area Council targets South San Antonio children from economically challenged, and often single-parent, homes.  The funds raised this year will help cover costs associated with sending kids to camps, as well as salaries for employees who serve in the absence of volunteer leaders.  

“The best part of scouting happens outdoors!  So, come out to Oak Hills and play your best golf with some good friends to benefit great kids,” says Michael de los Santos, Scout Executive for the Alamo Area Council, BSA.  

The four-player scramble tournament officially starts at 12:30 p.m. with a ten thousand dollar putting tournament elimination round and other competition.  There will be contests for longest drive, closest to the pin, and hole-in-one WIN A NEW CAR contest.

Reception, raffle, and an awards dinner will immediately follow the tournament.  For more information on the event, visit our website at http://www.BSACharityGolfTourney.com or contact Courtney Bukowski at 210-296-7623 or via email at chughes@bsamail.org
