The Corsicana Education Foundation has announced its 2008 “On Par for Education” golf tournament will be held on Saturday, Oct. 4th at the Corsicana Country Club.

This is the fifth annual tournament hosted by the Corsicana Education Foundation (CEF).

“This is our big fund raiser for the fall,” said Samantha Stroube, executive director of the Corsicana Education Foundation. “All monies raised from this event will go toward district projects like teacher incentives, classroom enhancements, student recognition programs and other activities.”

Last year, the tournament raised over $14,000. This year’s goal is over $20,000.

“The Corsicana Education Foundation is a tremendous resource for CISD,” said Don Denbow, superintendent for CISD. “Obviously, our budget and funds are restricted, leaving little room for other enhancements that make a huge impact within the classrooms. The foundation manages and implements programs that encourage support and recognition of our teachers and students within the local school system.”

Sponsorship opportunities are available at many different levels. “We have title sponsorships available as well as game day sponsors,” said Stroube.

For more information about sponsorships or teams, log on to the foundation Web site www.corsicanaeducationfoundation.com, or contact Stroube at (903) 654-2838.

“This event will be a very fun day for all those involved,” she said. “We greatly appreciate the support of our community to enhance services provided by the CEF. Corsicana’s public school education is a valuable resource for the future of our community.”
