PRLog - Aug. 30, 2012 - ALPHARETTA, GA - - The Rita Evonne Fraiser (REF) Foundation, an organization that provides scholastic assistance to students studying Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics (STEM) will host their first annual golf tournament and fundraiser Thursday, October 11, 2012.

Set at the Trophy Club of Atlanta, the golf tournament is designed to not only bring together some of the area’s best golfers but also to raise money to support economically disadvantaged youth interested in the STEM fields across the country.

Provide financial assistance to students majoring in Engineering, Mathematics, Science or Technology
Establish mentoring programs that foster leadership skills
Encourage students to strive for high scholastic and ethical standards in life and technical fields
