The Westfield Education Foundation is taking steps to add a new fundraiser to raise money for student scholarships and teacher grants.
The fundraiser will be from 2 to 5 p.m. March 4 at Top Golf, 9200 E. 116th St., Fishers.
Ashley Knott, a new WEF board member, said the foundation is working to add more innovative fundraisers. Knott said the fundraiser will be a networking event with 150 spots available.
“The foundation is a great thing that helps both teachers and students in the district, district wide,” she said. “As we get bigger, the foundation has to get bigger to continue to support the bigger numbers. As we continue to grow as a district, it’s a good opportunity to help provide grants. The Top Golf fundraiser, the reason we decided to do it is, it’s new and it’s fun and innovative and we hope people feel that way and bring that spirit back in.”
The two main fundraisers put on by the WEF are the Underground Railroad Run later in March and the Harlem Wizards Basketball tournament in the early winter.
Tickets are $100 for the Top Golf fundraiser. Admission includes three hours of golf, buffet-style food and a cash bar.
“We hope to have the board on-hand to walk around and to visit and share more on the foundation,” Knott said. “We hope to have a good time and celebrate growth and the foundation and raise some funds.”
To purchase a ticket, email Knott at email@example.com. Email information must include a name, address, email address and phone number. Knott said the fundraiser will pre-register people so there is no wait time at Top Golf.
