Mission Moment: Tee off for Team BCPS

Come rain or come shine, on Friday, October 13, 2017, one-hundred and thirty-six ambassadors to The Education Foundation of BCPS, Inc. will be lined up in their golf carts, waiting for the word, to start their journey and make their way to their designated tee box, to Tee Off for TEAM BCPS.

Last year, the first Inaugural Tee Off for TEAM BCPS was such a success, that community partners were ready to register for this year’s event, as soon as it was launched.  The event sold out in nearly six weeks, reflecting the enthusiasm and support from our community partners, whose generosity contribute to a brighter future for Baltimore County Public Schools.

Included in this year’s premier sponsor list are, Johnson Controls, Oak Contracting, Whiting-Turner Contracting, HMS Insurance Associates, GWWO, Inc./Architects, UPS, Daly Computers and HAVTECH.  Our distinguished Honorary Co-Chairs are Mr. Kevin Kamenetz, County Executive, Baltimore County Governent and Mr. Kevin D. Smith, Chief Administrative & Operations Officer, BCPS.  We will also be joined by Interim Superintendent, Ms. Verletta White, who will be making her rounds on the course to greet our appreciated golfers.

Proceeds from the event support systemic initiatives, scholarship opportunities and school-based projects, preparing BCPS students with 21st Century skills needed to be globally competitive.  Funding is supplemental and does not replace or alter use of tax-based revenue.  To learn more about programs supported by The Education Foundation of BCPS, Inc., go to our website and read about grant impact results from 2016/2017.  http://educationfoundationbcps.org/grant-impact-2016-2017/

Even though golf registration is closed, you can still be part of the experience.  Here’s how.  On October 6, 2017, our Silent Auction for the golf event will go live.  You can “Bid for the Future” for a dozen or more items.  From a Raven’s Tix and Tailgate package, to a The Wanderer Basket with round trip tickets, rental car and parking to your choice of destination, there’s something for everyone.  You can register online and start your bidding!  https://bidr.co/events/teambcps .  You can also bid with your cell phone.  TEXT the CODE teambcps to (855) 735.2437 to begin!

Highlights from the event will be shared in one of our future Mission Moments.  New and exciting changes have been added to the venue including drone footage of golfers at play.   We’re sure to capture some fun moments.  You can also visit us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to see live posts, tweets, and photos on the day of the event. # teeoffteambcps

On a final note, even though we’re playing on Friday the 13th, we’re hoping for sunny skies and gentle breezes, however, should the day bring rainy skies and blustery winds, we know our community partners will be there to tee off for education.
