CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA – June 3, 2010 – In honor of Yeardley Love, the University of Virginia student that tragically died May 3, Affinity Management-operated Musket Ridge Golf Club in Myersville, MD is donating 100% of green fees from its 1 pm tee times in June. All proceeds will be donated to the Yeardley Love Women’s Lacrosse Scholarship Fund.
Yeardley Love wore the number 1 jersey on the UVA women’s lacrosse team. 1 pm tee times start at $75 and additional donations will be welcomed. In the event more than one group wants the 1 pm tee time Musket Ridge will accept bids to raise more money.
Charlottesville, VA-based Affinity Management operates Musket Ridge and has many ties to the University of Virginia, including an intern who is affiliated with the UVA Lacrosse program. Musket Ridge is one of the top courses in Maryland and regularly draws golfers from throughout the Mid-Atlantic including Yeardley Love’s hometown.
Damon DeVito, managing director of Affinity, said, “In many ways you feel powerless in such a terrible situation, but we felt like we had to do something. It’s an admittedly small step, but hopefully this will contribute to Ms. Love’s memory and in turn, increase awareness about domestic abuse.”
The Yeardley Love Women's Lacrosse Scholarship Fund will annually provide a full scholarship for a member of the UVA women's lacrosse team, of which Love was a member. To donate directly to the Fund, please visit https://www.formstack.com/forms/VAF-YLMSF.
