The Sequoia Pathway Site Council will be hosting its second annual golf fundraising event (“The Big Drive for Education”) on April 28 at The Duke at Rancho El Dorado. The purpose of the fundraiser is to improve technology capabilities to meet new demands and standards for ‘high stakes’ testing such as AZ Merit as well as other programs to supplement lessons in the classroom and prepare 21st century students in the workplace, higher education, and in the community. Additionally, it will assist teachers in participating in professional development programs that will enhance their effectiveness in the classroom.

While one area of revenue for the event is golfer/team registrations, others include raffles for prizes, silent auction items, contests, and sponsorships. Maricopa is fortunate enough to encompass individuals from many sectors of the local businesses and organizations that can make this event a success. Sponsorships in the form of tee box advertising, donations of goods or services, and promotion of the event through social media and traditional business venues offer the best potential to meet the goals of the tourney. Moreover, they increase the enjoyment of the participants, promote our local businesses, and increase awareness of the great things our entire community continues to accomplish. Last year, the event received numerous in-kind donations as well such as gift certificates to local restaurants, golf courses, resort packages, a helicopter tour and sports memorabilia items. This year, Site Council has already donated a new 55-inch TV as a raffle item.

This scramble tourney event is open to the public, but spots are limited. Registration begins at 6:30 a.m. with a shotgun start at 7:30 a.m. The entry fee is $100/person and includes range balls, a golf cart, a full lunch, and more. Feel free to share these opportunities with those in your network of friends and colleagues. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Mr. Alberto Holguin (albertoinmar@gmail.com) and Mrs. Kelly Anderson (kanderso1@fmi.com), our tourney directors.
