2nd Annual Sharon Hardy Memorial Par 3 Tournament
The Surry County Schools Educational Foundation and Hardy’s Custom Golf are pleased to announce that the 2nd Annual Sharon Hardy Memorial Par 3 Tournament raised $5,000 on June 14, 2018.
The family of Sharon Hardy “continues Sharon’s legacy” by hosting the annual event. Sharon Hardy, who passed away in 2015, was a teacher, assistant principal, and principal in the Surry County School System for twenty-one years. The proceeds of the tournament benefit the Sharon Smith Hardy Educational Endowment Fund.
Choice Metal Buildings, the Hardy Family, and the Huffman Family were the Title Sponsors for the event. A hot dog lunch from Dairy Center for the players of the nine teams that participated was provided midday.
Before the teams teed off, Rex Hardy, Sharon’s husband, said, “I think Sharon would be proud to see this tournament happening. She loved teaching and loved all the kids she worked with. I think she’s looking over us today.”
“Sharon Hardy was dedicated to education in Surry County. I am sure she would appreciate that this event in her honor will help create enhanced learning opportunities for students and teachers for many years,” commented Ashley Mills, Foundation Liaison.
The morning’s first place team included Mike Harrison, Dennis Lowe, and Randy Lions. The afternoon’s first place team included Buddy Edwards, Cam Eaton, and Don Love. All participants had an opportunity to win raffle prizes including a round of golf for four at Olde Beau Resort & Golf Club with cart and green fees and a half-page ad in Surry Living Magazine.
