The Morning Pointe Foundation will hold its 9th Annual Mastering Memory Golf Tournament on May 20 at the Lookout Mountain Club.

Proceeds from the tournament go to the Foundation to provide clinical scholarships to students at local community colleges and universities. These include Chattanooga State Community College, The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, Southern Adventist University and Cleveland State Community College.

The Morning Pointe Foundation is the philanthropic arm of Morning Pointe Senior Living founded by senior healthcare entrepreneurs Greg A. Vital and J. Franklin Farrow. The 501(c)3 nonprofit public service organization was created in 2014 to provide caregiver support programs, sponsor educational awareness events, and fund clinical scholarships to advance the care of seniors throughout the Southeast. The Foundation currently has 17 college partners throughout the Southeast, in Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama, Kentucky and Indiana.

Twenty-eight teams of four from throughout the Tennessee Valley will compete, and three teams are still available. Registration and breakfast will start at 7:30 a.m., with the shotgun start at 8:30. The tournament will conclude with an awards luncheon at 1 p.m.

Contests include hole-in-one, longest drive, putting and closest-to-the-hole, with various prizes.

“We have a great time each year playing golf to help make dreams come true for some local students,” said Miranda Perez, Morning Pointe Foundation executive director. “If you love to golf and have a heart for seniors or students pursuing nursing education, please join us for the Mastering Memory Golf Tournament.”

Sponsorships include new recognition opportunities throughout the course and the event.

Sponsors of the event include Hole-in-One Presenting Sponsor UBS – The Union Square Group, as well as other sponsors First Horizon, Greystone, Neuhoff Taylor, ETSB, Propel Insurance, Builtwell Bank, HHM CPAs, Miller & Martin PLLC, Supreme Restaurant Equipment, Cleveland State Community College, The Jean Team, ETPS, AccentCare, Millennium Bank, HD Supply, Alderman Enterprises, Gordon Food, CDW and Wold Architects and Engineers.
