Time to 'tee off' for academic excellence

Cardinal Scramble event is Monday, June 8th Some 80 golfers are expected to gather at The Greens / Owasso Golf & Athletic Club in Owasso next Monday as the 17th Annual Collinsville Education Foundation puts on its John Butts Memorial Cardinal Scramble tournament. The four-person scramble event is expected to begin at 10 a.m. with a shotgun start at 13604 East 84th Street North. Team arrival time is a suggested 9 a.m. registration. The $75 per person entry fee includes green fee, cart, lunch and enrollment for prizes. The CEF is a 501C3 tax deductible organization so part of the entry fee is tax deductible, officials reminded this week. Since the organization’s founding in 1998, the CEF has donated, due to fundraisers like the golf event, nearly $250,000 to the Collinsville Public Schools’ teacher grants allowing the purchase of materials and equipment that assists the academic achievement of Collinsville students. If you haven’t entered yet, you’re not too late. You can call one of the Golf Fund Raising Committee listed in the flyer published in today’s Times Star or you can show up at the golf course on Monday and possibly still participate. Hole sponsorships are also still available from $100 to $1,000. -- Ted Wright / cvilleok.com / Times Star photo
