The American Hellenic Athletic Foundation
The American Hellenic Athletic Foundation benefits recreation, sports, leisure, athletics, focusing specifically on amateur sports competitions programs.
Dear Hellenes and Philhellenes:
On behalf of the AHAF Board, our event organizers Spiro Siaggas and Likie Beleos want to thank everyone in the AHAF family for supporting all of our past golf outings and signature projects. The 2017 outing plans are near complete and the setting is perfect for this time of the year. Our upcoming Sea Trails venue is within 5 minutes across a new scenic bridge to the Atlantic Grand Strand of Sunset Beach. Nearby restaurants and other sites of interest are within 10 minutes from our resort. PLUS, THE PRICE IS RIGHT with regards to providing the best golf, comfortable accommodations, and majestic scenery as you would expect for a memorable AHAF event.
With respect to the function of our mission, AHAF has supported seven (7) student athletes over the past four years for a total of $13,000 scholarships given. Our award recipients resided in Phoenix AZ, Dallas TX, St. Louis MS, Gary IN, and Marlboro MA. AHAF plans to build on the principal amount in this account so more can be awarded in the near future. It is this primary reason we conduct events such as this to fulfill our organization’s mission.
Every Hellene or Philhellene who has supported and participated in an AHAF golf tournament is a member in good standing and is asked to do their best to encourage other AHAF members and new participants to come join our worthy cause at this March 26 – April 1, 2017 event.
Plans are to recognize past participants and those who bring new participants by putting their names in a "hat" and drawing names for credits to their bill at Sea Trails. This will be done with a "weighted" number of times a name is put in the hat based on the times the member has participated at any AHAF event. Likely amounts may be $100 - $300 applied to the participants’ bill reducing golf venue costs.
Again, we are pleased to announce that there is NO ENTRANCE FEE for this tournament which typically ranged from $150 - $200 which was applied in the past to further award more scholarships. Instead, plans are to have a 50/50 raffle at this event so that it will satisfy awarding more scholarships. We think this will be so successful that we will initiate a 50/50 raffle right after this tournament to be given away at our next golf outing the following year. Details of the 50/50 Raffle project will be made available at Sea Trails.
We wish to extend a sincere invitation to all to participate in 2017. It will be great for everyone to see one another while playing the best golf for 5 days, partying for 6 amazing nights, having a hardy buffet breakfast for 6 mornings, toasting to drinks, and eating at a Welcome Night and an “over-the-top” Seafood Buffet Banquet, staying in comfortable villas with a dining room, family room, screened porches and kitchens, and the nearby surrounding scenic area of the Grand Strand Beachfront is certainly a major plus for you, your entire family, and friends.
All of this for $711.80 (double occupancy) including taxes, fees, gratuities. Isn't that great!!!?
An AHAF salute to Likie & Spiro! See you soon!
