2017 Tournament Raises Nearly $190,000

The 18th Annual Fore Our Schools Golf Tournament tee'd off at the Villas of Grand Cypress Golf Resort.
 
While we were still in recovery mode from Hurricane Irma, the Foundation decided hold its tournament on September 22.  We had over 260 scheduled to tee off, but due to hurricane recovery (both personal and business related) some teams had to bow out and were gracious enough to donate their team(s) back to the Foundation.  In addition to our players, we had over 15 Foundation / OCPS leadership team members and an army of 50+ volunteers at the tournament on September 22 to support public education in Orange County.  It was a great day of golf, networking and fun.
 
Orange Technical College's hospitality students volunteered again at this years event to gain hands-on experience in the industry that they intend to start a career. They were able to apply the sports marketing and sporting event promotion/coordination concepts to a real-world experience. This is the beauty of CTE...the learning goes beyond the classroom walls to real-world application.
 
Orange Technical College's audio visual team under the leadership of Keith Kolbo, gained valuable experience setting up sound for a vast driving range for morning announcements and the Hunter's Creek Chorus;  and then again in the meeting event center for the afternoon awards luncheon.
 
The players were treated to song by the Hunter's Creek Middle School Chorus under the direction of Alex Pollard and led out to the golf course by the Freedom High School Drumline under the direction of Michael Antmann.
 
Over the 18 year history of the golf tournament, the Foundation has raised more than $2.2M.
