VCS Spring Golf Tournament Details Announced

Friends of The Villages Charter Schools - please mark your calendar for the 16th Annual Villages Charter School Golf Tournament, benefitting The Villages Charter School. This year's event will again be held at Palmer Legends Golf Course, 1645 Palmer Way, The Villages on Saturday, May 14th with an 8:00 am shotgun start.

There are many ways to be involved:

  • Play golf in the event
  • Donate prizes for our golfers
  • Wrap up your Parental Volunteer hours for the 2015-2016 School year by volunteering for one of the several jobs the day of the event, or by seeking donations for prizes. Volunteer opportunities are very limited, so sign-up early.

The Tournament and format is fun for all skill levels (how hard is it to throw a golf ball?). Participants will again receive a nice golf shirt with their participation, along with plenty of on-course refreshments and a picnic-style Lunch following play. 

100% of the monies generated go directly to the charter school to help enrich the educational opportunities for our children. This year we have created a limited number of “Sponsorship” opportunities. To learn more, contact Maria Burns (see below).
