The eighth annual Bill Santucci Memorial Golf Tournament will take place Friday, Sept. 30, at Sierra View Country Club in Roseville.

The charity outing is named in honor of Bill Santucci, a community leader in Roseville for several decades. An avid golfer, Santucci and California State Senator Ted Gaines founded the tournament.

Proceeds from the tournament will be used for scholarships to help graduating Roseville Joint Union High School District seniors and Sierra College students. Last year, the event raised more than $30,000 and provided 27 scholarships to South Placer students.

The four-person scramble format begins with a 10 a.m. registration, followed by lunch at 11 a.m. and a 12:30 p.m. shotgun start at Sierra View, located at 105 Alta Vista Ave. A reception with appetizers and awards will follow the tournament.

Cost is $125 per person and includes range balls, barbecue lunch, awards, raffle prizes and appetizers.
