The event on Saturday gave young men an opportunity to network with their mentors.

It gives them an opportunity to see what can be done out here on the golf course. It gives them the opportunity to say hey I can be county manager; I think I can be a teacher. So it gives them interaction with people doing those types of things, said Herb Gray an organizer of the event.
