Golfing for Schools Card to go on sale in Truckee Tahoe
May 2, 2013
TAHOE/TRUCKEE, Calif. — Dust off the clubs and prepare to purchase your Excellence in Education Foundation Golfing for Schools Card going on sale Saturday, May 4.
The $295 transferable cards are valid for 18-holes of play at seven of North Tahoe and Truckee's premiere golf courses including: Coyote Moon, Northstar, Old Greenwood, Resort at Squaw Creek, Tahoe City, Tahoe Donner and Gray's Crossing. Some restrictions do apply; visit http://www.ExinEd.org for details.
"If you were to pay for 18-holes of golf at each course independently, you could easily spend over $500," said Laura Abbey Brown, executive director of the Foundation. "So not only are the cards a terrific deal, golfers are also helping support local Tahoe Truckee schools."
The Golfing for Schools program is a primary fundraising program of the Tahoe Truckee Excellence in Education Foundation, a private, nonprofit organization that enhances public education within the Tahoe Truckee Unified School District.
Cards may be purchased at Porters Sports in Truckee and online at ExinEd.org. There is an eight card per person purchase limit. A limited number of passes are available and cards will be sold on a first come, first serve basis. Purchase your card on May 4 and be entered into a drawing for a twosome of golf at Schaffer's Mill or Ponderosa Golf Course. Call Excellence in Education at 530-550-7984 or visit http://www.ExinEd.org for more information.
