OLYMPIC HEIGHTS TO HOLD GOLF SCRAMBLE AND SILENT AUCTION
Annual Golf Tournament to Benefit Specialized Academy Programs in Engineering, Education, Finance, Tourism, Culinary and Fashion

BOCA RATON, FL, March 20, 2013 – The Career Academies at Olympic Heights Community High School, in partnership with the Boca Raton Resort & Club, will hold the sixth annual Olympic Heights Golf Scramble and Silent Auction on Sunday, May 5, 2013 at 11:30 a.m.

The event is open to the public, and the school is seeking the support of both golfers and sponsors.

All funds raised and donations received will assist in funding the six Career Academies that call Olympic Heights home. They include the Academy of Engineering & Technology, Academy of Early Childhood Teacher Education, Academy of Finance, Academy of Tourism, Hospitality & Resort Management, Culinary Arts Academy and Fashion Academy.

“The tournament allows community members the opportunity to play golf on a spectacular golf course while also benefiting the students in the Career Academies at Olympic Heights,” said Anita Foster, academy coordinator. “It’s really a win-win-win for everyone—the golfers, the sponsors and, of course, our students, who directly benefit from this event.”

Registration for the Golf Scramble starts at 11:30 a.m., with a shotgun start slated for 1 p.m. The Golf Scramble, which will be followed by an Award Dinner and Silent Auction, will take place at Boca Country Club, 17751 Boca Club Boulevard, Boca Raton. The cost is $100 per golfer or $350 for a foursome. Those who wish to attend the Award Dinner only are welcome for a $50 couvert.

Sponsorships are welcome and run from $100 for a Hole Sponsor to $1,000 for a Platinum Sponsor, which includes golf for four, recognition banners, press releases, signage and more. Donations of goods or services that can be used as raffle prizes or auction items are also appreciated.

Registered participants will not only enjoy a great day of golf but will also receive a swag bag, free beverages and snacks and much more. The Award Dinner will feature delectable cuisine, a silent auction and the announcement of the winners.

New at the Golf Scramble this year is a Hole-in-One Contest sponsored by Joe Griffin & Associates. That contest features a $25,000 cash prize.

The event is being offered in partnership with the Boca Raton Resort & Club, a business partner of Olympic Heights, which has been supporting the Career Academies since their inception at the school.

Proceeds from the Golf Scramble will benefit the Career Academies at Olympic Heights.

Career academies are small learning communities within a high school that offer a curriculum with a career focus. These college preparatory programs, some of which have industry certification, offer students the opportunity to delve deeply into their career interests while they are still in high school. Through programs such as job shadowing, mentoring, internships, field trips and guest speakers, students in the Olympic Heights Career Academies not only learn and get a leg up on other students applying to college but also network, learn about career opportunities and make lifelong contacts and connections that will prove invaluable to them as they progress through their careers.

“Our Academies provide so many wonderful opportunities for the students,” Foster said. “They are rigorous, but they provide students with a high-quality education that equips them to attend college and earn a degree in a field of study in which there are substantial job opportunities.”
