HOUSTON – Sept. 30, 2020 – The Spring ISD Education Foundation will host its annual “Tee Up for Education” golf tournament and fundraiser on Monday, Oct. 19 at Northgate Country Club. The tournament will begin with a golf clinic at 10 a.m. followed by the official tournament start at noon. Golfers, sponsors and other guests will enjoy a post-tournament dinner, reception and awards presentation at 5:30 p.m.
The “Tee Up for Education” golf tournament is the Spring ISD Education Foundation’s major fundraiser for the 2020-21 school year. Funds raised from the tournament will directly support the students of Spring ISD and go toward funding major programs supporting online learning, as well as literacy and reading initiatives in the district.
The group is seeking interested golfers and golf teams, hole sponsors for the course, and others who would like to show their support for the foundation and its mission. For more information, and to register to play or help sponsor the event, visit the foundation’s Charity Golf Tournament webpage.
Other ways to participate and support the foundation’s work include a Hole-in-One contest featuring a $10,000 cash prize, a Longest Drive contest, and a Closest to the Pin competition where golfers will go up against other participants to test their skills on the course. There is also an online auction of sports memorabilia.
Foundation members currently planning the event are taking state and local guidance on safety protocols into account, and are working to ensure a safe experience for all participating golfers and other supporters of the event, with social distancing and other safety measures in place.
Since its start in 1993, the foundation, which operates as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, has awarded more than $1 million in innovative teacher grants and scholarships for Spring ISD students, with the annual golf tournament long-established as a community tradition. This year’s tournament is presented by longtime district partner Perdue Brandon Fielder Collins and Mott‚ LLP.
