Special Events

Only 45% of our operating budget, which include scholarships, is covered in the fees we charge to our participants. We keep the price of our student and educator fees competitive and fair to ensure we do not price-out any particular family across the entire socioeconomic spectrum.

To augment our budget, as well as share awareness of our program and provide leadership opportunities for our participants, we have created a series of events that cover a plethora of interests.

In 2016-17 we have three major events:

GV mini-Golf Classic
