More than 155 golfers made a hole-in-one for education, raising some $43,000 at the Canyons School District Education Foundation’s second-annual golf tournament.
Community sponsors donated from $300 to $5,000 to play at the September tournament at Wasatch Mountain State Park in Midway. Their investment is a partnership in their local schools and a pledge to help Canyons students receive a world-class education. Money raised is vital for the District’s success. Those dollars go directly to student and teacher projects that are not supported by taxpayer money.
“The Canyons School District Education Foundation feels that this fundraiser is crucial for creating the community relationships needed to sustain successful schools,” says Allison Spencer, the District’s Chief Development Officer. “These corporate sponsors have a passion for building bridges between their business and the schools.”
Foundation money is used to fund teacher grants for innovative research and classroom activities; scholarships; capital-improvement plans; and extra support for the science, technology, engineering, math and arts programs.
More than 75 sponsors donated to the Foundation’s tournament, including $15,000 in in-kind supplies. The seven major sponsors included Hogan & Associates Construction, Sandstrom Associates Architecture, Centeva, Hughes General Contractors, Olsen & Peterson Consulting Engineers, Westland Construction and Peerless Electric.
