Join Vickery Electric’s “virtual” fundraising golf tournament at Royal Ashburn Golf Club starting May 2011 in support of the first trade school in the Dominican Republic.
In 2008, in support of the Rotary Sunrise, local groups participated in a fundraiser generating enough money to build the first trade school in the Dominican Republic. Some 1800 students have graduated over the years. The building is up, and now it’s time to buy equipment!
Enter the Viva La Loma Virtual Golf Tourney!
Vickery Electric is sponsoring the Viva La Loma 2011 Golf Tourney at Royal Ashburn starting May 2011. Each team comprises 3 golfers ($200.00/golfer). A sponsorship charge of $200.00 per team is optional.
The three players will be accompanied by a fourth (a rep from Vickery Electric), and the score will be posted on Viva La Loma’s website [awaiting URL] and sent out via email to some 600 local businesses. Radio announcements and articles in national magazines follow.
The tournament will run the entire summer, and participants will choose the date on which they will play. All monies contributed by participants will be donated to the trade school to fund equipment and materials required.
Vickery Electric will: pay for the golf, carts, meals and prizes awarded.
“The folks at Whitby Rotary Sunrise did an exceptional job in the construction of the facility in Consuelo, Dominican Republic—a very poor community with little and diminishing opportunity, until now,” says John Vickery. “It is very important that we continue the effort and ensure the self sustainability of this new institution. Rotary should be congratulated and supported here. This effort shows real promise.”
So join your friends for a great day of golf in a scramble format on a terrific course.
