TROY — The Troy Area School District Foundation held an organizational meeting Wednesday to discuss the upcoming golf tournament fundraiser.
The foundation has operated as a support for students in the Troy school system and has held annual fundraisers for golf tournaments for 16 years. A 501© (3) foundation raises money each year to fund school supply grants for teachers and the Dolly Parton Foundation.
Through the Dolly Parton Foundation, they distribute free books to children in the district so that all children can have the opportunity to read.
The foundation has also awarded more than $650,000 in scholarships to senior graduates over the past 20 years.
Funds for these projects are provided by donations from Troy alumni and members of the community, and some even comes from teachers and staff at schools in the district.
Their biggest fundraiser is the golf tournament, which will be held at Corey Creek Golf Club this year on June 17. The registration cost is $100 per person, and there will be a raffle at the event. Registration begins at 7:30 a.m. and the event will end around 2 p.m.
Those interested in registering for the tournament, donating to the Foundation, or becoming a sponsor can contact Liz Woolf at (570) 297-2750 or by email at [email protected]
