The Oak Ridge High School Community Foundation will host its 12th annual golf tournament on Monday, Oct. 17, at Serrano Country Club in El Dorado Hills.
The foundation is anticipating a highly successful and well-attended outing with great prizes, wonderful food, excellent golf and a superb opportunity to network, and meet new and old friends.
The foundation’s annual golf tournament has been an excellent venue at which to promote community spirit while supporting students, programs and facility needs at the high school. The participation of friends and donors over the past several years has allowed the foundation to complete many school improvement projects.
The 2010 golf tournament proceeds helped complete the interiors of the new concession stand in the athletic stadium as well as contribute to the foundation’s
annual scholarship fund and teacher grants; 100 percent of the funds raised stay at Oak Ridge.
To date $5,250 in scholarships have been awarded to deserving high school seniors with strong community service and leadership skills. Funds raised have also helped fund the teacher grant program. Items purchased through these grants include smart document cameras, LCD projector remotes and TI calculators all that work with the smart board technology in the classrooms, projection magnifiers and hexagel electrophoresis chamber for the AP biology classes.
