The BEF Raises Over $11,000 for Berkley Schools Students

On Friday, November 3, the Berkley Education Foundation held its first annual golf tournament, The BEF Open. This X-Golf tournament included 10 teams competing for the big prize, food, sponsors, golf games and spectators enjoying the event. In total, The BEF Open raised $11,215.  The BEF funds four large giving initiatives: Teacher Innovation-Grants, FREE student enrichment programs and clubs, 8th grade college tours and student scholarships for the Maxfield Science Symposium. All funds raised made these giving initiatives possible.

Congratulations to the team Dude, Where’s My Par for taking home the prize pack - a round of golf at the Dearborn Country Club, hats, medals and a golf game! 

Congratulations to the individual Golf Game winners, too!

  • Closest to the Pin: Doug Roberts

  • Putting Challenge: Marybeth Schlau (who sank the 40’ putt)

  • Longest Drive: Chris Marshall

Each Golf Game winner took home a $100 X-Golf gift certificate and bonus prizes like an indoor putting mat, a driver fitting from Club Champion and a driving range gift certificate to Carl’s Golfland.

The BEF would also like to thank their sponsors for making this event successful.
