~ Annual Golf Tournament ~

The Scholarship Foundation of Wakefield will hold its annual Golf Tournament on Monday, September 15, 2014 at Bear Hill Golf Club in Stoneham.  The tournament will feature numerous prizes and a noontime shotgun start that will be limited to 64 players, male or female. Each golfer will play their own ball and the Callaway system will determine the top three net prizewinners. Prizes will also be awarded to the top three low gross scores. Other prizes will include the longest drive on the twelfth hole, closest to the line on the tenth hole, and closest to the pin on the four par three holes. The top prize will be $500.00 for the first hole-in-one on the seventh hole. Enjoy a beautiful afternoon of golf followed by a delicious dinner buffet, prizes and a raffle all while supporting a great cause. 

Tournament sponsors are the Wakefield Co-Operative Bank, the Wakefield Daily Item and Flo’s Auto Bath.  TSF of Wakefield is very grateful for their continued support.

The cost for 18 holes of golf with a cart, a sleeve of golf balls and dinner is still only $100 per person (if paid before September 8th; $125 per person after September 8th). This is a great opportunity to play a private course that is in excellent condition. You can make your own foursome or we will place you in one.  If you cannot join us, please consider sponsoring a tee or donating a raffle prize.

** THE GOLF TOURNAMENT IS FULL. ** For further information and to be placed on the mailing list, please call Roberta at (781) 245-4890.  For further information about TSF of Wakefield, please visit our website www.tsfofwakefield.org.

~ Start a Scholarship Fund ~

 

Thinking about starting a Scholarship Fund? Scholarship Funds can be established for any reason. What better way to honor a family member, teacher, coach, or mentor whether living or deceased? Better yet, establish a Fund in your own name and start your own legacy! Funds can also be established in the name of a business or organization. Scholarship Funds are truly the gift that keeps on giving. Endowed Funds (meaning that they have reached a minimum balance of $7,500) will continue to provide scholarships into perpetuity. Each year, we pass along the story of your Fund in the form of biographical information to the Scholarship recipient. There is no better feeling in the world than to read a thank you note from a grateful college student.

To start a Fund, $750 is required with the promise of future yearly donations of at least $750 for the following ten years. If you are not ready to commit to a Fund yet but still want to help a student directly, we offer a One-time Scholarship for a minimum donation of $300. With a One-time Scholarship a Scholarship in the name of you, your honoree, business or organization will be made the following June to a deserving student. Your entire donation is disbursed. For more information and to request an application, please click here.
