Washington High School's Important Golf Team Fundraiser-Second Annual Event

On April 6, 2019 Washington High School will be hosting our 2nd annual golf fundraiser at Great Hope Golf Course. The format for the fundraiser will be an 18 hole 4-man scramble with prizes and door prizes. Washington Academy High School (WAHS) is in Princess Anne, MD within Somerset County. Somerset County is poorest county in Maryland (USA Today, 2015) and the 31st poorest county in the USA. Somerset County has a median household income that is 52% of the state median household income. According to the latest census (MD Government, 2017) the population in Somerset County was only 26,470. Our players are solely responsible for their own equipment and gear.
Last year through your generous donations the team was able to purchase new bags, new carts, towels and other materials. We are hoping we can count on your support again this year. This year we have many options for you to support our team. Whether you would like to be a Maroon ($25), Bronze ($50), Silver ($100) or Gold ($250) sponsor or even a tournament logo sponsor! Once again our fundraiser will be used to purchase the supplies, new equipment and other things that the team needs. Click on the title to see the flyer.
