A Beautiful and Successful Day for the St. Leo’s Golf Tournament!
On Friday, May 22, St. Leo’s PTO hosted their 7th Annual Golf Tournament at the Westfields Golf Club in Clifton, VA. Jim Anderson, Tournament Chair, and Jean Mancuso, Auction Chair, with Kevin Murphy, Susan Gledhill, Lena Gude and Mizuho Akiba, helped our school enjoy its highest-grossing tournament yet, with over $70,000 accounted for to date! With only two months to work on this fundraising event, the auction, alone, has grossed over $10,000. Estimates for the tournament’s net (after expenses) are over $40,000. These much-needed funds will help our teachers, Mrs. Allis and Mr. Hedderson, purchase 60 Chromebooks to replace obsolete netbooks on roaming carts. They can install wireless network infrastructure (multiple school-wide access points; upgraded switches and wiring) to replace the current infrastructure which is unable to support increasing numbers of wireless devices. The school also is in need of Linux server upgrades and 28 computer lab computers to meet the computer lab image, video, and other multimedia requirements. These computers will replace student computers in individual classrooms. Thank you, to everyone who helped on the tournament. These funds will GREATLY help our students and their school!
