Old Hickory Golf Club in Woodbridge and SPARK, the education foundation for Prince William County Public Schools, hosted the 27th Annual Tee Off for Education Golf Classic on July 31. Safety measures, and a new layout to the tournament that involved tee times to spread out groups and minimize contact, were put in place to mitigate risk due to the COVID-19 virus.

In addition to the raffle that normally occurs during the event, a silent auction was added. Both were hosted online for the first time, and open to all PWCS staff.

Funds raised during the tournament support public education in Prince William County, specifically the SPARK Innovative Grants Program.

Through its Innovative Grants Program, the foundation invests in programs that directly and measurably impact student achievement. These programs may impact a classroom, team of teachers, individual school, or the entire school division. Grants are awarded up to $5,000 and are reviewed monthly by a panel of educators and business leaders in the community.

The tournament was made possible through the generous support of sponsors to include the following:
