Washington Township Education Foundation preparing for 2020 Golf Classic

This year's event will take place on Friday, June 19 at White Oaks Country Club in Newfield

The Washington Township Education Foundation will host its 24th annual Golf Classic on Friday, June 19. The outing will be hosted, rain or shine, at White Oaks Country Club in Newfield. Registration and lunch will precede a 1 p.m. shotgun start for the scramble-formatted outing.  A cash bar, dinner and an awards ceremony, along with prizes and giveaways, will complete the afternoon. All proceeds will directly benefit the Washington Township Public Schools.

Individual golfers can register at a cost of $125. Sponsorship opportunities and special prices for corporate foursomes are available. To obtain a registration form or to secure additional information, contact chairman Gary Knight at (856) 816-2199 or publicity chairperson Jan Giel at (856) 589-6644, ext. 6550 or via email at jgiel@wtps.org.

“The WTEF golf outing annually reunites long-time supporters of our organization and the Washington Township Public Schools,” WTEF president Charlie Doud said. “In addition to offering a great afternoon of camaraderie and competition, the event generates a lot of monies to fund and support programming for our kids.”

Proceeds from the WTEF 24th annual Golf Classic will be used to offset the cost of numerous worthwhile WTEF activities and sponsorships.  Since 1996, the WTEF has diversified educational opportunities for more than 7,200 students who attend Washington Township schools.  To date, the WTEF has donated more than $1 million to bring in noted professional and multi-cultural programs, establish the Renaissance program at WTHS, and to fund a student art gallery, dance studio and greenhouse.  In addition, the WTEF has supported the high school marching band, Project Graduation, issued 500 mini-grants to staff members and upgraded the sound system at Tom Brown Stadium.

Not a golfer?  Individuals still can lend their support to the Golf Classic by attending a post-golf reception for a cost of $45 or by making a tax-deductible donation.

Anyone with questions can email wtef@wtps.org.
