“Teachers spend about a thousand dollars of their own money. Unbelievable, and so this organization gears towards more the inner-city students to help them be able to buy school supplies,” explained Anthony Calhoun. 

“It’s just an important event to raise awareness about teachers and their needs,” said Margaret, a teacher involved with the organization.

Among the golfers participating this year are WISH TV’s Scott Sander, Mike Barz and Stephanie Mead.
