Eventbrite - Roosevelt Dad's Club 8th Annual Golf Tournament
Dear Friends of Roosevelt Elementary,
We are excited to be writing to you about the 8th Annual Roosevelt Elementary Dads Club Golf Tournament!!

This is the largest 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 grow. 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 8th Annual Roosevelt Golf Tournament this year on Friday, February 28, 2014 at the newly renovated MacDill AFB Bay Palms Golf Complex. We are currently seeking sponsorships and collecting donations from businesses and individuals. Please find the attached sponsorship form 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 Pavilion, put in iron fencing around the property, refurbish decking at the nature trail, establish WiFi network for teachers, put a sound system in the cafeteria and pave the green line loading area. This year’s potential projects include: fans in the pavilion and a new marquee sign on Concordia Avenue.

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

Its that time of year again. The weather is changing (slowly) and the Dads club is ready to host another event to help the school and have a lot of fun. No poker experience is needed AT ALL. The Dealers, along with other Dad’s at the table will give you all the help you need. Each year we have new Dad’s that ‘say’ they never played before and end up doing well.

This event is not exclusive to Dad’s Club members, friends, family and even wives are invited. Last year a Grandmother made it to the final table!

New this year, we are planning to rent a bus that will take Dad’s club members from the Roosevelt Parking lot to the Racetrack and back. We have to determine how many people want to untilize the bus service so we can rent the proper sized vehicle. Please signup for the bus ride via the sign up genius if you are interested.
