On Monday, June 17, the Hempfield Foundation held their annual golf tournament at Four Season’s Golf Course. The tournament is held as a fundraiser which benefits the students of Hempfield School District. They fund grants to sponsor speakers, assemblies and programs in the schools. This year the Foundation contributed $1000 of the tournament proceeds to establishing an endowment for the Arts at Hempfield in memory of Mark Groner, a former teacher who taught music at Centerville Middle School. Nearly 115 golfers played in this year’s tournament and participated in various fundraising activities including a silent auction.
The coordinator of the event, Rao Sankarmanchi, was pleased with the number of teachers, administrators and corporate and business sponsors that participated in the tournament. The Hempfield Foundation also appreciated the time and commitment of many volunteers that helped to make the day a success!
