Dear PIL Families, Coaches, and Communities,
We are looking forward to our upcoming 7th Annual PIL Open Golf Tournament. Please mark your calendars for Monday October 5, 2020- at Columbia Edgewater Country Club.
The PIL Open Golf Tournament is a fundraiser conducted by the PIL Foundation to generate resources to support Portland Public Schools (PPS) student athletes. Nearly one in three PPS students, grade 6-12, participate in PIL athletic programming. Over the past 7 years, the PIL has grown from providing opportunities for 5,500 student-athletes to providing opportunities for over 13,000 student-athletes. With the continual expansion of athletic opportunities, there is greater need for additional resources.
KEY PROGRAM FUNDING AREAS:
PIL Youth Sports Program (PILYSP)
College Access Program (assisting PIL seniors in participating in collegiate athletics)
Equity Funding for low SES schools
Equity Funding dollars to support historically underserved populations (females, students of color)
Growth and expansions of opportunities (Lacrosse, Soccer, & Softball in low SES communities)
Covid Updates: Although many sporting events have yet to restart due to their elevated risk during COVID-19, golf is considered a low risk sport because it takes place outdoors and social distancing is possible. We are working closely with Columbia Edgewater Country Club to ensure the tournament will comply with all local government and safety regulations, including PGA’s Back2Golf operations.
We are asking your help to support this fundraiser by doing one or more of the following:
Register a 4some for the tournament- https://forms.gle/5uEtAq3tUPRas2n1A
Secure a foursome
Identify potential sponsor(s)
Donate auction items
If you are able to support us with any of the above and would be willing to make initial introductions via email or phone that would be greatly appreciated. Please contact Heather Jenkins at email@example.com to discuss details.
