Golfers, sponsors sought for foundation tournament

Registration is now open for the second annual golf tournament to benefit the Farmington Educational Foundation, which provides support to educational initiatives in the Farmington School District as well as scholarships to Farmington graduates.

Foundation Executive Director Sally Sullivan-Shinn said the first tournament was well-attended and a great start for the foundation, with hopes of capitalizing on the success this year.

“It was great for our first tournament,” Sullivan-Shinn said. “Of course, now our goal is to grow the tournament this year.”

The foundation supports initiatives in the district such as student technology, Parents as Teachers, JROTC and STEM programs at both the elementary and middle school levels. The foundation additionally provides approximately $22,000 in scholarships to Farmington students each year.

The golf tournament is scheduled for Oct. 19, with organizers still looking for teams, hole sponsors, door prizes, “goody bag” items or monetary donations.

The tournament will be a four-person scramble at Crown Pointe Golf Course and is scheduled for a 1 p.m. shotgun start, with a noon lunch being included in the $400 team registration fee. There will be multiple flights with cash prizes, mulligans included and skins available.

Hole sponsorships of $100 per hole are available for interested individuals, organizations or businesses.
