Hole sponsorships, which include recognition on a banner and during the dinner, are available for $100. Those who prefer to register by mail can download the form by going to www.kualumni.org/golf.

The tournament is one of more than 100 events the association will sponsor in Kansas and throughout the country during the annual 'Hawk Days of Summer.
