We have a very important announcement to make: the Hope Hall Board of Trustees has voted to cancel our 23rd Annual High Hopes Golf Tournament which was scheduled for Monday, August 6, 2018 at The Links at Greystone.
We want to assure you that this decision was not made lightly. The tremendous generosity we have received from our Golf Tournament participants over the years has helped generate thousands of much needed dollars for our Tuition Scholarship Fund. However, we live in a community where there is an overwhelming number of golf tournaments held during the spring and summer months to benefit non-profits who serve the Greater Rochester area. Consequently, the competition for event sponsorships and participants has hurt our efforts to hold a successful Golf Tournament fundraiser for Hope Hall each year.
We want to continue our partnership with our golf supporters as you are invaluable assets to our school. As you know, more than two-thirds of our $2.7 million-dollar Operating Budget, including our Tuition Scholarship Fund, is raised through funds donated by individuals and businesses such as your own. Over 85% of our students living at or below the poverty level rely on Tuition Scholarship awards made possible by folks like you.
Please do not hesitate to contact our Development Team at any time to discuss what other avenues for special event, student scholarship, program, planned giving, and general Operating Support are available. Contact information for our Development staff and our upcoming special events can be found below.
