DUNWOODY, GA. - Principals and parents from the eight schools that make up the Dunwoody Cluster are coming together for the first time to support education in a unique way.
They’re organizing an inaugural community golf tournament called “All Fore One” on Monday, October 2, 2017.
"The golf tournament was a small idea that grew as the feeder principals talked about the desire to create a sense of community- where neighbors get to know neighbors, where one school supports another, where we realize that we are truly ONE," said Dunwoody Elementary School Principal, Jennifer Sanders.
The All Fore One committee is comprised of parent volunteers from Dunwoody High School, Peachtree Charter Middle School, Austin Elementary, Chestnut Elementary, Dunwoody Elementary, Hightower Elementary, Kingsley Elementary, and Vanderlyn Elementary.
For the first year, the funds raised will benefit capital improvements and educational enrichment at Dunwoody High School.
Looking forward, the tournament will raise money for Peachtree Charter Middle School as well.
The high school and middle school will benefit from the tournament in alternating years based on need.
Co-chairs Julia LeDoyen and Lauren Middlebrooks said it is a thrill to collaborate on this effort.
"The support that All Fore One is getting from families with young children is astounding," they said in a statement. "Seeing elementary school parents and principals working together for the future is an indicator of the commitment Dunwoody residents have to maintaining strong schools for many years to come. We will all benefit from that.”
This year’s proceeds will be directed to the “Game On Campaign” to assist with their efforts to enhance the high school athletic facilities.
The event will be held at Dunwoody Country Club, located at 1600 Dunwoody Club Drive. Registration will begin at 8:30 am with a shotgun start at 10:00 am. It will include a box lunch, award ceremony, and raffle.
“All Fore One” is seeking early sponsors to be featured on a banner in the Dunwoody 4th of July Parade, the largest of its kind in Georgia.
