North Dakota golfers have two opportunities to play in the Clover Classic 4-H golf benefit this summer.

The annual event, consisting of a best-ball scramble, will be held June 28 at the Hawktree Golf Club in Bismarck and on Aug. 16 at the Oxbow Country Club in Oxbow. Following play will be a meal and awards ceremony, as well as a live and silent auction.

“For more than 50 years, the North Dakota 4-H Foundation has played a key role in helping prepare youth to meet the challenges of tomorrow through its fundraising efforts,” says Mylie Lavold, foundation development director. “Since the first tournament in 2000, the Clover Classic has been an integral part of these efforts.”

Funds raised support North Dakota 4-H youth and the adult volunteers who assist them. Through many traditional programs, including livestock judging, horse and crops, and new programs such as aerospace, robotics and geospatial science, more than 20,000 youth across North Dakota are empowered to become leaders in their communities and country.

Rachelle Vettern, leadership and volunteer development specialist in the North Dakota Center for 4-H Youth Development, stressed the importance of supporting the tournaments.

“More than ever, we need our communities, both businesses and individuals, to support the Clover Classic,” Vettern says. “The 4-H youth depend on the foundation for scholarships, funding for programming and financial assistance to attend state and national events. There are many ways to help. Whether you are a participant, sponsor, donor or volunteer, you help make 4-H happen for youth throughout the state of North Dakota.”

The North Dakota 4-H Foundation is a charitable 501©3 organization with a governing board of 22 members and a development director.
