Golf tournament benefits The Academies of Viera High


The Academies of Viera High School will conduct its annual VHS Academy Classic golf tournament on March 10 at Baytree National Golf Links.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the school’s Academy of Business and Finance and the Academy for Communication, Art + Design.

The goal of this year’s fundraiser is to purchase two full laptop carts.

The action kicks off with an 8 a.m. shotgun start. The cost is $300 for a foursome or $80 a player, with those fees rising to $375 per foursome and $100 per player two weeks prior to the event.

The price includes course fees, breakfast snacks, lunch, raffle ticket and goodie bag. There will also be a longest drive, closest-to-the-pin and a hole-in-one competition.

Prizes include four rounds of golf at Baytree and a gift card for first place. Second and third-place finishers receive a gift card and a surprise. The last-place finisher receives a surprise gift package. One player will have a chance at $10,000.

There are sponsorship opportunities ranging from $5,000 to $150.

Players can register for the tournament by hand-delivering or mailing the payment to Viera High School, Attn: Barbara Kelly, 6103 Stadium Parkway, Melbourne FL 32940. VV
