Sharon Hardy Memorial Par 3 Tournament

  • Thank you for your support of the Sharon Hardy Memorial Par 3 Tournament and the Surry County Schools Educational Foundation.  

    The Surry County Schools Educational Foundation raised $6,000 at the first ever Sharon Hardy Memorial Par 3 Tournament at Hardy’s Custom Golf on June 22.

    The tournament was supported by the family of Sharon Hardy, a teacher, assistant principal, and principal in the Surry County School System for twenty-one years, who passed away in 2015.  Her family wanted “ to continue Sharon’s legacy,” by hosting a fundraiser to benefit the Surry County Schools Educational Foundation.  The proceeds of the tournament establishes the Sharon Hardy Endowment Fund.

    Choice Metal Buildings and Dunmore Plantation were the Title Sponsors for the event.  Lee Mills Construction Co., Inc. was the Club House Sponsor and provided a hot dog lunch for the players of the nine teams that participated.

    The overall first place team of the Par 3 Tournament was the team “The Natural Hazards”, which included Colt Corley, Matt Klug and Kevin Corley.  The team received a $200 Visa card from West Pine Storage and Granite City Storage.  Team Danley, including Mike Harrison, Buddy Edwards and Russ Danley, was the second place overall winner and received a $100 Visa card from West Pine Storage and Granite City Storage.  A trio from North Surry High School, Evan Marion, Michael Martin and Austin Smith, placed third overall and received golf for four from Olde Mill Golf Resort.

    The Surry County Schools Educational Foundation is committed to supporting students and teachers in the Surry County Schools System by providing resources for educational opportunities that would otherwise be out of reach.  In 2016, the Foundation funded field trips, guest speakers, theater experiences, STEM supplies, competition registrations and more for students in all nineteen schools.  With generous donors and special event sponsors like you, we can continue to provide for our schools, students and teachers.
