Southern Vance High School’s Art Department is hosting its second “Swing for the Arts” golf outing on Saturday, October 15 2011 beginning at 8 a.m. at Kerr Lake Country Club north of Henderson.

Costs per golfer are $35 prior to the event and $40 per golfer on the day of the event. The golf outing will follow a four-man Superball format. Handicaps are required and playoffs will be determined by the raw scorecard. Non-metal spikes should be used and no professionals can play. Prizes will be awarded for the longest drive, closest shot to the hole and longest made putt. There also will be a raffle drawing with the purchase of $1 tickets. The entry fee includes greens’ fees, a golf cart and complimentary soft drinks. Golfers can purchase a Mulligan, a Throw and a Red Bomber for $10.

Garrison and other organizers are seeking participants and sponsors for the event.

From Glenn Willis Garrison – Art Teacher, Southern Vance High School:  As the 2011-2012 school year begins teachers are faced with a tighter than ever budget with which to teach our students. As an Art teacher in Vance County I try to influence the creative side of our students as well as teach them problem-solving and productivity skills for their future. The materials needed to do this are consumable and require restocking every year. I tried a new approach to solve this short fall last year and it really helped us have a successful and creative year. We want to have the same success this year and hope you can help us again. The second annual “Swing for the Arts” golf tournament will take place on Saturday, Oct 15thand we would like your business to be a sponsor for a hole of your choice. All proceeds raised will directly benefit the art students and art club at Southern Vance High School. Your sponsorship, along with others, will provide the needed supplies for our students. Each hole sponsored will have two advertisements that promote your business. The advertisements will be framed and can be created by our art students if you want.

The costs of the sponsorships are as follows:

  • ·        $100 full sponsorship
  • ·        $50 sponsorship and a donated gift item as a prize on the sponsored hole.
  • ·        $20 cash donation (advertising on the leader board)

The golf format for the outing is a Superball format.  We already have several great prizes, cold drinks, and snacks for you to enjoy. The cost per golfer will be:

  • ·      $ 35 if prepaid by Oct 6th
  • ·      $ 40 on the day of the event

We hope to have a full field of players and great weather so please help support our students. We hope this will be an annual event and a great way to support the arts in Vance County.

If you are interested in sponsoring, donating, or just playing please complete the enclosed form and be sure to spread the word about this event.

We hope you can join us on October 15th for an enjoyable day.
