The smiles are broadening, the links are calling and the color is rising for Yellowball 2016!
Will you join us on the course?
Friday October 7th at Langdon Farms
What is Yellowball?
It is first and foremost a fun-loving community event, disguised as a family friendly golf tournament, silent auction and BBQ chicken dinner. There are surprises for the young ones, prizes for the true-golf competitors, great items to bid on at the silent auction, and camaraderie for all!
Plus…sky-high wishes in hopes that the helicopter yellow ball drop (with a prize of a $750 Allison Inn Spa Package!) will fall in your favor!
Proceeds from this golf tourney and family dinner directly benefit our school community because it supports the Mary Kate Booth Endowment Fund at St. Clare School.
How does this fund impact St. Clare School students and families?
Over the last two years, the MKB Endowment Fund has provided necessary monies to supplement our tuition assistance program.
Withdrawals are taken from the interest generated on the principal. In addition to tuition assistance, MKB Endowment Fund withdrawals can be used to support art, science, music, and the library. Additionally, a tithe of 10% of any withdrawal we make from this fund, supports St. Clare Parish.
The MKB Endowment Fund is a sub fund of our bigger endowment fund. This past year, withdrawals from the overall endowment have allowed us to increase our learning specialist program without significantly raising tuition. A solid endowment strategy that includes growing the endowment while also withdrawing from the interest generated on the principal, is a way for schools like ours to both maintain and then increase a high level of educational programming with only modest increases in tuition and fundraising programs.
