A monthly update from the South Dakota Dental Association  

SD Dental Foundation Golf Tournament

The time is fast approaching for the SDDA Annual Session this year in Sioux Falls. The South Dakota Dental Foundation is planning its annual fundraiser golf tournament in conjunction with the Annual Session as well. The tournament this year will be held on Thursday, May 14 at Prairie Green Golf Course in Sioux Falls. The format is a 4-person scramble with a shotgun start beginning at 1:00 pm. Immediately following the golf this year there will be a short reception with hors d'oeuvres to socialize and present the tournament prizes. If you are planning to participate in this year's event please contact the SDDA at 605-224-9133 by May 7, 2015. The golf course needs to know by May 8 how many golfers there will be so they can plan their tee times.
