The seventh annual Bill Santucci Memorial Golf Tournament will be held Friday, Sept. 17, at Sierra View Country Club in Roseville. Santucci was a dedicated community leader in Roseville for several decades. An avid golfer, Santucci and California Assemblyman Ted Gaines founded the tournament. Gaines and Placer County Supervisors Kirk Uhler and Rocky Rockholm are this year’s hosts. Proceeds will be used for scholarships to help graduating Roseville Joint Union High School District seniors and students at Sierra College. The event raised more than $15,000 and provided 22 scholarships last year. The four-person scramble format begins with a 10 a.m. registration, followed by lunch at 11 and a shotgun start at noon at Sierra View, located at 105 Alta Vista Ave. Cost is $125 per person and includes range balls, barbecue lunch, awards, raffle prizes and appetizers. The tournament is limited to 128 players. Sponsorships are available. To become a sponsor, sign up for the tournament or for additional information, call Carol Garcia at (916) 724-2424.
