2016 Highlights

2016 Tournament Raises Nearly $180,000

The 17th Annual Fore Our Schools Golf Tournament tee'd off at the Villas of Grand Cypress Golf Resort.
Over 250 golfers, 20 Foundation / OCPS leadership team members and an army of 50+ volunteers were at the tournament on September 23 playing to support public education in Orange County.  It was a great day of golf, networking and fun.
Orange Technical College's hospitality students volunteered 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.
Over the 17 year history of the golf tournament, the Foundation has raised more than $2M.
