WHAT: The second annual All Fore One Tournament will add tennis to the mix to support capital improvements and educational enrichment at Dunwoody High School and Peachtree Charter Middle School. This unique community event is hosted by the non-profit organization All Fore One Dunwoody, Inc., which has the support of volunteers and principals from all of the public schools in the Dunwoody High School cluster.
“We are thrilled to announce the addition of a round robin at the Dunwoody Country Club tennis facility,” said organizer Jenny Shulman. “Part of our mission is to bring our community together, and including our tennis players in our days events will help us to accomplish more for our great public schools.”
The 2017 inaugural All Fore One tournament was so successful that organizers presented a $20,000 donation for capital improvements to DHS Principal Priscilla Cole and Melissa Humphries and other representatives of the Game On campaign. The All Fore One donation was used with funds raised from other community sources to complete the first phase of improvements to the outdoor facilities behind the school. Improvements include the addition of a 1,000 seat bleacher, storage buildings, and a perimeter sidewalk and fencing around the track.
Every student will benefit from these improvements. All students are required to participate in physical education, and those students who play instruments in the band practice outdoors. Several high school sports, including soccer, lacrosse and football, will be able to host games on the rear Dunwoody High School field, while the school currently offers no home field accommodations. Community members frequently access the track for exercise when it is not in use for school activities.
WHEN/WHERE: Monday, October 1 at Dunwoody Country Club located at 1600 Dunwoody Club Drive. Golf registration will being at 8:30am with a shotgun start at 10am for a 4-person scramble format. Tennis registration will open at 11am with the round robin beginning at 12:30pm. Food and beverage will be served at both events.
CALL FOR ACTION: All Fore One is a memorable event hosted at a premier golf and tennis venue. Event organizers are committed to the mission to host a community event in support of public schools in Dunwoody (Dekalb) and pledge to make the event so worthwhile that participants are eager to repeat the experience year after year.
“All Fore One is a must-play in my book,” said Norm Hanson, Dunwoody resident and 2017 All Fore One golfer. “Where else can you play such an incredible course with great friends while supporting our local schools? The tournament is a blast, and you have a great chance at winning some really nice prizes. I have had this marked on my calendar since I walked off the 18th green last year.”
Event organizers are still seeking sponsorships. More information is available online at www.allforeonedunwoody.org.
