The 12th annual Bill Santucci Memorial Golf Tournament will take place Friday, Sept. 18 at Sierra View Country Club in Roseville.

The charity outing is named in honor of Bill Santucci, a dedicated community leader in Roseville and Placer County for several decades.

The proceeds from the tournament, which is presented by Community 1st Bank, will be used for scholarships to help graduating Roseville Joint High School District seniors, which includes the following high schools: Woodcreek, Roseville, Granite Bay, Oakmont, Adelante and Antelope.

Last year the popular event raised more than $19,000 and provided 22 scholarships to deserving South Placer students.
