You are invited to join us for the 2010 Scramble for Students being held September 14, 2010 at the Gresham Golf Course. Last year the interest, energy, commitment and generosity of the community in support of Scramble for Students overwhelms me! More than 100 golfers came from all over the city to participate. Thirty local businesses chose to sponsor our tournament. Twenty- three individuals donated prizes and gifts for our golfers. Sixteen high school students volunteered. And collectively, we produced and played one of our most successful golf tournaments in our foundation’s history!

The Gresham-Barlow Education Foundation has announced it will donate $60,000 towards the purchase of a core reading program at the elementary level to the Gresham-Barlow School District. The funds come from the foundation’s 2009 and 2010 phone-a-thons.
“We are excited to support our schools through this donation,” said Foundation Chair Wendy Vondrak. “Providing classroom materials that will help ensure every elementary school student develops strong reading skills is critical to this school district’s success.”
The foundation has also agreed to donate the proceeds from the 2011 and 2012 phone-a-thon for the reading program purchase. The annual phone-a-thon, held in February, is the foundation’s largest fundraising event of the year. Over the last six years, the foundation has raised more than $260,000 to provide extra support for struggling readers. In addition to providing support for reading programs, it also provides a fundraising opportunity for high school student groups.
The Gresham-Barlow Education Foundation was started in 1994 to assist the schools of the district in providing the best possible educational opportunities for its students.
We would like to thank our 2009 and 2010 contributors:
Danna Brothers, Elmers
School district employees, parents and the community at large
