25th Annual MKE Assistance Fund Golf Tournament

Mark your calendar for April 27th and join us or pitch in as a sponsor!


The tournament is more than just tee-time, it helps keep the vision of Dorothy Bjork (Association President 1984-86) and the giving spirit of Merry Kay Ezell (former Area Director, Region Representative and namesake) going! In the last 24 years the Annual MKE Tournament has raised more than $320,000 for the CSEA Humanitarian (Assistance) Fund – and we’re still going strong!

We’re excited to invite you to join our team – both on and off the course. The MKE Tournament primarily raises funds through the sponsorship. Tournament sponsors include our CSEA Areas, Regions, Chapters, Member Leaders, Departments, Staff, Unions and Benefit Providers. There’s no one way to sponsor; we’ve got options at all benefit levels! You’ll also find details as to how to register for the tournament. Bring a full team of your family, friends or coworkers, or come solo and we’ll find a team for you!

We look forward to seeing you April 27th at the RiverLakes Ranch Golf Course in Bakersfield, CA. (Directions)

Helping families in need


Merry Kay Ezell, CSEA member and former Area D Director, pioneered the annual Assistance Fund Golf Tournament.

Over the past 24 years the Merry Kay Ezell Assistance Fund Golf Tournament has donated more than $320,000 to the Humanitarian Fund to help CSEA families displaced by natural disasters or impacted by financial emergencies outside their control.

Funds raised through donations and sponsorship of the Merry Kay Ezell Golf Tournament go directly to the Assistance Fund and into the hands of families that desperately need it. Although the need is great, with your support we can help families on the course to stability in an unstable time.
