KINGMAN – Manzanita Elementary School has partnered with Valle Vista Golf Course, parents and the school community to host a benefit golf tournament on Saturday, May 7.
The money raised will be used for technology and school equipment.
“Proceeds from this year’s tournament will help Manzanita improve and repair the gymnasium scene and purchase new technology and playground equipment,” the Kingman Unified School District wrote in a press release.
Money from previous tournaments has been used to purchase new swing sets, science kits and Chromebooks for each student in grades 1-5.
It’s also fun, said Manzanita principal Lindsay Wolsey.
“This is a fun charity event that involves students’ families and the community,” Wolsey said. “The golf tournament gives everyone the opportunity to work together for the benefit of our students.
The tournament will begin at 7 a.m. with a four-player scramble format.
Participants receive two tickets for a drink, lunch and the chance to win one of many prizes, including “closest to the pin;” cash prizes for first, second and third place; door prizes and drawing items.
