Winchester Sports Foundation Golf Tournament. Registration is now open for the Foundation's annual golf tournament, to be held on Monday, May 7 at the Winchester Country Club. Registration for golf and for sponsorships at varying levels is available on-line at http://winchestersportsfoundation.com/golf.html .
For those who may not be familiar with the Foundation, it was organized more than twenty years ago to raise money to preserve and promote the sports programs at Winchester High School. By helping defray the increasing costs of athletic programs, and supporting the introduction of new sports programs, the Foundation helps ensure that as many students can participate in sports programs as possible. For example, the Foundation has made significant donations towards the fund-raising for Phases 1 and 2 of the Manchester Field development, and recently donated $25,000 towards the renovation of the weight room/training facility at the High School. Donations from the Foundation have helped launch new teams at the high school, like volleyball and ski team (Nordic, Alpine and Riding) for girls and boys, and we have also provided the funding for the baseline concussion testing that all student athletes at the high school receive.
The golf tournament is the Foundation's flagship fund-raising event. At a dinner following the afternoon of golf, the Foundation honors a person who has made a significant contribution to the Winchester athletic programs. Two student athletes from Winchester High School also speak at the dinner about the major impact the sports programs at the high school have had on them. You can support the Foundation by signing up to play golf, by becoming a sponsor at one of several levels, or by attending the dinner on May 7.
