NEWS IN BRIEF n
500 FRIENDS PROJECT HEADS TO 18TH TEE: The '500 Friends of BSD Golf' project rolls on this week with its drive to save Metro League golf. Sponsors say that the 500 Friends project is going well, but needs a strong final week to reach its goals. The project, set up in response to Beaverton School District budget cuts that eliminated funding for high school golf, seeks first to secure funding for the 2013 spring season for the varsity boys and girls golf teams at Aloha, Beaverton, Southridge, Sunset and Westview high schools. After that, the drive aims to secure funding to continue Metro golf for 2014-15 as well. Metro golfers are each being asked to secure at least six 'Friends,' donors who will contribute at least $50 to help save Metro League golf. Contributors may pay by check or credit card by visiting savebsdgolf.com. At the end of the fund-raising process, the districts players, coaches, parents, friends and supporters will be invited to a celebration at 6 p.m. Nov. 14 at the Tiger Woods Center on the Nike campus. That event, emceed by local television host Paul Linnman, will begin with a social hour, followed by a celebration presentation and speakers at 7 p.m.
