Every year in Sacramento County, students are expelled or suspended from school because of their involvement in on-campus violence, weapons possession, or aggressive behavior. For these students to be readmitted to their schools or complete a rehabilitation plan—especially in cases that reach the court system—they must complete a sanctioned violence prevention program. Project SAVE (Safe Alternatives and Violence Education) is one such program. It holds an annual fundraiser, which is the main source of funding for the model community project.
Golf Tournament Fundraiser
The 17th Annual Project SAVE Golf Tournament is scheduled for Monday, October 28, 2019, 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. Entry fees are $175 per person or $700 for a foursome. A short luncheon will be provided at the conclusion of the tournament.
Sponsorship opportunities include: tournament host, contest sponsor, individual hole sponsor, and tee sponsor. Project SAVE is also seeking door prize donations to benefit the program.

The program emphasizes that weapons possession and violent behavior are unacceptable, especially on school grounds.

Nine out of ten participants remain violence-free after participating in the program.
