The Planning Committee sincerely thanks all volunteers who contributed to the event, all corporate and hole sponsors, door prize/silent auction donors, and all the local businesses who supported the event that has now generated over $30,000 in net proceeds over the nine (9) years for Rox athletics and the scholarship program. The committee welcomes any input from any Rox alumni and/or friends of the Outing and to join them at any committee meeting in planning for a special 10th Anniversary event for the Summer of 2012.


 

 

2010 Athletic Alumni Golf Outing


 

These things are all made possible by Rox Athletic Alumni and their many supporters.  We all join together each summer, enjoy our friendships, and raise funding for worthy Rockville Athletic causes. 

Thank you one and all for your gracious and continued support….
