Dear Student Emergency Fund Golf Tournament Supporters,
I am pleased to announce that the Annual Student Emergency Fund Golf Tournament will be returning on Tuesday, August 29th 2023 at Oak Hills Golf Course. So please “save the date”!
For more than 20 years, the Hastings and Prince Edward Learning Foundation has hosted our annual golf tournament in support of the Student Emergency Fund. Unfortunately, we had to cancel last year’s event, but I am very pleased that we are back, bigger and better than ever.
The funds raised through event sponsorship and golfers on the day will ensure that students across the Hastings and Prince Edward District School Board will be able to get our support for needed food, clothing, medical supplies, transportation, post-secondary registration costs and more, immediately and without “jumping through hoops” in times of need. Once a school has identified the need the Learning Foundation can react.
Reducing or overcoming the barriers to attendance and learning presented by financial stress and food insecurity has been shown to promote success in school, and your participation in the Student Emergency Fund Golf Tournament makes it possible.
As in the previous few years, and to maximize the impact of your sponsorship or registration fees, the event will feature tee times throughout the day, a “grab and go” lunch, and a variety of on-course games provided in a way as to not impede your pace of play. Tee times will be arranged so that companies or organizations with multiple foursomes will be able to be grouped together if they wish.
I appeal for your continued support for this most worthwhile event and look forward to seeing you in August!
Chair, Hastings and Prince Edward Learning Foundation
