GIRLS GOLF FUNDRAISER

Through this fundraiser, our athletes are learning teamwork, and our supporters are helping from near and far. This is a financial relief to parents, and it means more time for our athletes to practice and coaches to coach. We thank all of you for your concern and commitment; this will allow the team to receive 100% of the funds. Please remember any donation will help us to build a quality program.
