Every year in Sacramento County, hundreds of students are expelled from school because of involvement in on-campus violence. In order for these students to be readmitted to their schools, especially in cases reaching the court system, they must successfully complete a sanctioned violence prevention program. Project SAVE (Safe Alternatives and Violence Education) is one such program.

The mission of Project SAVE, operated by the Sacramento County Office of Education, is to reduce youth violence and weapons possession through strong partnerships with local agencies.

Since 1998, Project SAVE has served more than 2,500 young people in Sacramento County. Nine out of 10 participants remain violence-free after participating in the program, according to SCOE.

The 11th annual Project SAVE Golf Tournament is scheduled for Sept. 23 at the Valley Hi Country Club, in Elk Grove. Check-in will begin at 8 a.m. and the “shotgun” start will begin at 9 a.m.

This annual fundraiser is the main source of funding for this program.

A downloaded brochure and entry form can be found at www.scoe.net.

Entry fees for the tournament are $150 per person or $600 for a foursome. Tournament host, contest sponsor and individual hole sponsor opportunities are also available. Project SAVE is also seeking door prize donations to benefit the program. A short luncheon will be provided at the conclusion of the tournament.

For more information about the Project SAVE golf tournament, or to find out about sponsorship and volunteer opportunities, contact Cheryl Raney at 916-228-2201.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
