Golf Tournament Swings With Opportunity for Lyme Consolidated School

Lyme Consolidated School has announced that it will host its Second Annual Golf Tournament and 19th Hole Event, on Saturday, May 6. The event is hosted by the Lyme Consolidated School Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO), a non-profit group that works to support the Lyme Consolidated Elementary School that serves students of Lyme and Old Lyme, through volunteerism, parent involvement and funding activities, programs and materials for the students and staff of the school. Net proceeds from the tournament will benefit the Lyme School PTO.

The tournament will be hosted on the beautiful grounds of Fox Hop Yard Golf Course located in East Haddam, just minutes from the Lyme Consolidated School.

There will be a BBQ lunch and a shotgun start at noon. The golf will include several contests on the greens including a hole in one contest. Reynolds Subaru of Lyme, Conn., has generously offered a new Subaru to any hole-in-one made that day.

The festivities will continue after golf into the early evening at “On the Rocks” at the Fox Hop Yard Golf Course where golf awards, hors d’oeuvres and cocktails (cash bar) will be enjoyed.  Non-golfers are invited to join in the fun as well from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Wonderful silent auction items will be available such as original jewelry by Ann Lightfoot, concert tickets and more    

The Lyme PTO offers an array of special activities that help the children of the community flourish. Each year the PTO offers roughly 20 enriching programs for K through 5th grade, such as Curiosity Shop, where children can choose from a variety of specialty workshops held in an after school program or school assembly cultural events such as African American storytelling.

The PTO also hosts the Circle of Giving, in which families and students in need are helped during the holiday season, and their hallmark Veteran’s Day Tea, Staff Appreciation Day and many field trips for all classes to name a few.

In order to have a successful tournament, sponsors are needed to offset the costs. The PTO is looking for local community members and businesses to support the event by being one of our Hole Sponsors or advertising in our PTO Golf Tournament Booklet, and, of course, golfing!

A single player registration is $150, which includes a BBQ lunch, 18 holes of golf, golf carts, use of the golfing facility and a ticket to the 19th Hole Event & Silent Auction. Non golfing guests can also attend the 19th Hole Event & Silent Auction for $50 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

There are many other opportunities for local community members and businesses to support the event such as tee signs for $100. The PTO is also looking for silent auction items and volunteers.
