The seventeenth annual “Green Fever” benefit golf tournament was recently held at the Hobble Creek Golf Course in Springville.
The Nebo Education Foundation made enough to fund teacher grants this year. All profits from the tournament go directly to benefit children and classrooms in Nebo School District.
“The ‘Green Fever’ golf tournament was a huge success!” said Craig Shields, foundation board member and co-golf organizer.
“This tournament is a great way to help our children and our business partners enjoy a beautiful fall golf game.”
Tournament sponsorships range from $1,200 to $150. Donations of products, gift certificates, merchandise and services or monetary donations were given by generous businesses and communities.
The tournament has always filled weeks before the tournament.
Chad Lewis, pro football player and BYU Associate Athletic Director, was the celebrity welcoming each golfer.
Lewis sponsored a “Buy the Pro Shot” on the #10 hole where all teams bought his shot for $20 except one.
The Nebo Education Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization created to bring businesses, donors and volunteers together for the benefit of local public school children.
The foundation conscientiously manages and disperses tax-deductible donations to local schools in the form of scholarships, financial grants, equipment and supplies. Foundation members are volunteers committed to helping area residents assist our children.
The money earned aids in providing resources to enrich student learning within all of the schools within the Nebo School District.
