COUNCIL CUP GOLF CHALLENGE DETAILS AND OTHER SEMA COUNCIL AND COMMITTEE NEWS

Representatives from all of SEMA’s councils will once again hit the greens for the Council Cup, a friendly golf competition among council members to prove who has the better hackers as they swing their way towards the “coveted” SEMA Council Cup Perpetual Trophy. The competition takes place during the annual SEMA Charity Golf Tournament, set for Friday, July 25, at the Strawberry Farms Golf Course, Irvine, California. Whether you’re a pro or a rookie, the event promises to be a good time, and it’s for a good cause—proceeds benefit Child Help and Victory Junction Gang Camp.

The SEMA Charity Golf Tournament is part of the fundraising activities held in conjunction with the 2008 SEMA Installation Banquet & Gala Fundraiser. For more information on the banquet and activities, click here
