Takoda May Mulligan

May 22 @ 10:30 am – 8 pm

In life, a mulligan is just par for the course. It”'s a do-over after a missed shot. A fresh start. The choice to try again rather than give up. Students at Takoda Institute take every mulligan they are given and turn it into a victory as they enroll, learn and graduate with a promising career pathway in IT, healthcare, or business. Your support provides scholarships for students motivated to succeed, but lack the financial means to access high demand jobs that lead them on a pathway to the American dream. On Monday, May 22nd, help us turn mulligans into jobs with a day of food, fun and friendly competition. All golf packages Include a round of golf, lunch, cocktail hour, and dinner. Don”'t golf ”“ no worries ”“ join us over the cocktail hour and stay for dinner.
