Auburn Valley Golf Club is hosting the Sierra Open, which benefits PEACE for Families, on Saturday, Sept. 8.

Entry fees are $110 per person or $400 per foursome for the 1 p.m. shotgun, four-person scramble format tournament. The fees include hosted range, green fees, tee prizes, golf carts, lunch and a raffle.

Registration check-in is set for 11 a.m., with lunch being served at 11:30 a.m. The raffle and cocktails will immediately follow the day on the links.

The deadline for registration is Aug. 29.

A dress code of golf attire will be enforced.

According to the PEACE for Families website, “PEACE for Families is an acronym for Placer Extends A Caring Environment for Families, and that’s exactly what we do.

“We firmly believe that everyone — regardless of sex, race, religion, or occupation, whether they are heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, gay, lesbian or transgender — deserves to live a life free from violence. We provide victims of domestic violence and sexual assault in Placer County with a safe, caring and nurturing environment free of charge.”

Those interested in being a sponsor or signing up can call Michael Kerr, tournament director, at 906-3064 for more information.
