Golf tournament to help Lakewood students

Lakewood Education Foundation golf tournament

You can help students attending Lakewood schools by supporting the Lakewood Education Foundation (LEF) Golf Tournament on Friday, Oct. 20.

And you don't even have to play golf to support the cause!

Through the generous donations of Lakewood residents and businesses, LEF was able to donate over $45,000 last year in grants of up to $500 to dozens of local teachers for classroom improvement projects. These grants provided electronic tablets, microscopes and other science equipment; art and physical education supplies; books of all kinds and reading levels; and a variety of classroom technology such as Apple TVs and microphones.

Here’s how you can help to fund teacher requests this year:

Play golf (or sponsor another golfer, such as a high school student) at the Oct. 20 tournament, starting at 1 p.m. at the Lakewood Country Club.

The entry fee of $145 includes greens fees, golf cart, pre-tournament BBQ lunch, goodie bag and on-course small bites and beverages. 

View the LEF Golf online form to support the event in any of these ways:

  • Register for the golf tournament.
  • Take advantage of sponsorship opportunities.
  • Buy a “Tee Sign” with your name/message for $100.
  • Purchase raffle tickets. 
  • Donate a raffle prize of merchandise or a gift card worth $25 or more.

Or, just make a tax-deductible donation! It's easy to donate online at

The non-profit LEF is run by volunteers in Lakewood and is dedicated to improving educational opportunities for local students.
