A Successful Inaugural Golf Tournament
Over 60 golfers and nearly 20 corporate sponsors came together to support Rocky Mount Prep in their first Golf Tournament in the school’s history.
Golfers arrived at Belmont Lake Golf Club where they were greeted by scholars and staff. As scholars loaded golf carts with their golf bags, staff checked in golfers and presented them with a gift bag full of gifts from corporate partners.
Todd Pipkin, Head of School, thanked scholars for their participation, then the golfing festivities began. Dixon Golf partnered with RMP and allowed golfers the chance to win one million dollars during a hole in one challenge while Belmont Golf Pro challenged golfers during the Beat the Pro challenge allowing them the chance to win a variety of prizes.
At the completion of the round, golfers were provided with a meal that was catered by The Main Course along with an endless supply of coke products, which were donated by Coca-Cola. An array of awards and raffle prizes were given including a fun award for the last place team.
All of the funds raised during this event will assist Rocky Mount Prep in providing needed classroom technology and helping them reach the goal of becoming a 1 to 1 school by providing up-to-date technology that will impact the education of scholars and creating superior academic outcomes.
Rocky Mount Prep is looking forward to another successful and community supported event on June 15th, 2018 with their 2nd Annual Golf Tournament!
