Golfing for Schools a hole in one

The Tahoe Truckee Excellence in Education Foundation would like to thank the participating golf courses and the community for their support of the 2014 Golfing for Schools program. This year’s cards sold out raising $90,000 for the Foundation’s school grants programs.

The continued support of our partners — Coyote Moon, Gray’s Crossing, Old Greenwood, Northstar California, Resort at Squaw Creek, Tahoe City and Tahoe Donner golf courses — make this program possible. Excellence in Education would also like to extend a special thanks to the Truckee-Donner Parks & Recreation District and Ponderosa golf course as well as Lahontan golf course for their donations of two rounds of golf used as an incentive for cards purchased on the sale’s opening weekend. All proceeds go to Excellence in Education Foundation.

The Foundation greatly appreciates the dedication these golf courses show for local education.

Additionally, we’d like to thank the community members who regularly support our fundraising programs.

The Excellence in Education Foundation is a private, nonprofit organization that enhances public education within the Tahoe Truckee Unified School District. Each year the Foundation raises money and provides grants, resources and partnerships to benefit students, teachers and the educational community as a whole.
