Henry Elementary School will hold its fifth annual golf tournament fundraiser at Beaver Hills Country Club in Martinsville on Saturday, April 12.
The event will begin with a barbecue lunch at 1 p.m. and tee-off time is 2 p.m.
The event will be a Captain's Choice tournament. Teams of four can enter the tournament for $200 (due the day of the tournament), and hole sponsorships are $50. Art students at the school will make signs for businesses that sponsor a hole.
All proceeds for the fundraiser will go towards school supplies for Henry Elementary School students.
"We will also have a raffle beforehand for the golfers, and they each will get a little bag with some goodies as a 'thank you'," said Rebecca Stefo, PTO president and event coordinator.
Thanks to proceeds from the annual fundraiser, Henry Elementary parents have not had to purchase school supplies for their students in four years, Stefo added.
The school is also seeking donations of raffle items, snacks and drinks for this year's fundraiser.
For more information, to register or to donate items, call the school at (540) 483-5676.
