Dear Friends,

Greetings from the Bergstrom Family. Our 16th annual Rick Bergstrom Tent Classic will be held on Saturday, September 16 at Greenhorn Creek Golf Course & Resort. We feel honored to invite our family and friends to join us for this yearly event. As always, we promise to do our best to provide you with great golf, good food and a wonderful opportunity to connect with old friends and make new ones.

We feel blessed that so many people are able to attend this yearly event; and although we love to see everyone having a great time, our goal is to honor Rick and donate to worthy causes in his name. Without all of your support none of this would be possible. Thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to pass on Rick’s legacy that he began 15 years ago of “Playing with a Purpose.” A mere “thank you” seems hardly enough to truly convey our appreciation.

Over the years our donations to the UCSF Foundation, which enables research and programs that fight depression -- affecting 35% of the population -- will continue to be our focus. We have also, however, been able to give to those in need by way of student scholarships and gifts to different organizations. Please take notice of some of the organizations we donate to annually:

  • UCSF Langley Porter Hospital: Research for clinical depression.
  • Sacramento State University: Scholarship
  • Brett Harte High School: Scholarship
  • Fuller Seminary: Scholarship Doctoral Program
  • Jessup University: Church Planting
  • University 4 Orphans/Joe Brandi: Ministry to world orphans
  • Vision Farm: Ministry to the people in Haiti, helping them to grow food, housing and water.

Everyone of you who participate in this event have been part of that giving so, again, thank you. There are many ways for you to get involved this year.

  • Play Golf $175 (Includes golf, lunch, dinner, golf apparel & gift bag)
  • Sponsor a Tee: Platinum $600, Gold $250, Silver $150, Bronze $100
  • Donate items to Silent Auction
  • Join us for Dinner & Silent Auction ($40 per person)
  • Buy or Sell Raffle Tickets
  • Invite your Friends and Family!

We welcome any suggestions or questions and are looking forward to seeing you in September. Please contact Kasey Bergstrom Smith at 916-747-4147 or
