This year’s BACKPACK GOLF TOURNAMENT to be held on

FRIDAY, JUNE 12 — 11:00 a.m. SHOTGUN

There remains a growing need in the City of Sanford to provide weekend food for qualified Sanford Students. It’s hard for students to sit in a classroom on Monday mornings and learn when they have spent the weekend hungry.

Your help is needed in supporting the BACKPACK GOLF TOURNAMENT which is providing the Sanford Backpack Program with funds to help combat this problem.

Last year’s tournament was a big success. We hope you will consider helping local students again this year with your support.

More information to follow.
