    Press Releases - Honor an Educator by playing in DEF golf tourney at Deer Run June 8
    by: Rota Knott, DEF Executive Director
    (Posted 02/14/2013)
        The Delmarva Education Foundation will hold its first Honor an Educator benefit golf tournament at Deer Run Golf Club in Berlin on Saturday, June 8. Proceeds from the golf tournament will benefit both DEF and the new Marian Colbert Memorial Scholarship fund.

    DEF is a local non-profit that helps make the dream of obtaining a college degree a reality for students in Wicomico, Worcester, and Somerset counties by assisting them with finding money to continue their education. Many of those served by DEF are low-income, first-generation college students who don’t have anyone in the family to help them work through the college application and financial aid process.

    The Marian Colbert Memorial Scholarship is being established in memory of Deer Run owner Ed Colbert’s first wife, Marian, and will provide much-needed money for local students to go to college.

    The registration fee is just $100 per player. The tournament features a Captain’s Choice Scramble format and kicks off with a 9 a.m. shotgun start. Registration includes a continental breakfast, lunch, golf and cart,  range balls, one mulligan per player, team prizes, hole-in-one prize. There will also be silent and live auctions, a putting contest, cash raffle and much more. To Register, Call Deer Run at 410-629-0060.

    Golf tournament sponsors are also needed as are silent and live auction donations. As a golf tournament sponsor at the $1,000 level, sponsors will receive a free team entry for 4 players, a 1/2 page advertisement in the event program, a sponsorship mention in all  tournament marketing and a large professional hole sign posted on the golf course during the event. Additional sponsorship levels are also available.

    By becoming a sponsor of DEF’s Honor an Educator golf tournament, local businesses can help ensure that all residents of the lower Delmarva Peninsula have the opportunity to succeed in college. To become a tournament sponsor or to learn more about DEF, call Rota L. Knott, executive director, at 410-219-3336.
