Dear Friends of Roosevelt Elementary,

We are excited to be writing to you about the 12th Annual Roosevelt Elementary Dads Club Golf Tournament!!

This is the sole fundraising event put on by the Dads Club.

We all feel very fortunate that we are able to send our children to an A-rated elementary school located in the heart of our South Tampa community. It’s because of the hard work of the faculty, parents, and the support of the local business community that Roosevelt has been able to maintain this A rating.

Over the last several years we have seen the student population at Roosevelt grew. As the class size continues to grow so has the need for additional support from the parents and our local businesses. The Dads Club Golf Tournament is a great avenue to support Roosevelt. It is also a great way to advertise your business!

We will be hosting the 12th Annual Roosevelt Golf Tournament this year on Friday, February 23th at the newly renovated MacDill AFB Bay Palms Golf Complex. We are currently seeking sponsorship’s and collecting donations from businesses and individuals. Please find the sponsorship form on our website that explains the different levels of participation. All proceeds from the tournament will go towards supporting Roosevelt Elementary projects.

With monies raised over the past several years, the Dads Club has been able to: construct the Dads Club courtyard and walkway, put in an upgraded projector and screen in the auditorium, Dads Club Pavilion, put in iron fencing around the property, refurbish decking at the nature trail, establish WiFi network in the classrooms, sound system in the cafeteria, carpool and walkers corner pavers, smart boards in all the classrooms and a new sign, not to mention the thousands of hotdogs served at Teddy’s Cafe!.

We hope that you will join us in this year’s tournament. If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact:

President- Nathan Pawelkop –
Vice President- Chris Hobbs –

Thank you in advance for your support of the Roosevelt Rough Riders!
