Golfers teed up June 6 to help raise money for the All Ages Read Together, which provides free school readiness programs to low-income children in Loudoun and Fairfax counties.
The golf tournament, held at Raspberry Falls Golf & Hunt Club near Leesburg, raised more than $17,000.
Supervisor Koran Saines (D-Sterling) kicked off the tournament with a few comments. The tournament was the inspiration of Peter Knapp, the 10-year-old organization’s board chairman.
“This is the sixth year we have had this tournament and we raised more money than we ever have before. We are so thankful to our sponsors and those who came to play and support this amazing cause,” Knapp said.
All Ages Read Together has another big event on the calendar—its Horseshoe Hoedown on Saturday, Sept. 30. The celebration is open to families and will be held at River Farm Stables, on River Farm Lane near Leesburg.
