EAGLE COUNTY — The Education Foundation of Eagle County will hold the second annual Eagles Fore Education golf tournament on Wednesday at the Red Sky Ranch Fazio Course. Proceeds from the event will benefit local public middle and high schools.

Special thanks to Vail Resorts’ EpicPromise for donating the Red Sky Ranch Fazio Course, and for their investment in Vail Valley public education. Vail Resorts has been a faithful contributor to EFEC throughout the years.

“Because of the contribution from Vail Resorts EpicPromise, we are excited and grateful to be able to offer our community the opportunity to contribute toward EFEC’s efforts,” said Wendy Rimel, president of EFEC. “Last year, the golf event allowed us to help provide middle and high schools with school counselors, teaching assistants and programming including Advancement Via Individual Determination, all while enjoying golf at one of the world’s premiere golf courses.”

Golf Played in Scramble Format

Registration begins at 10 a.m. with an 11 a.m. shotgun start. Golf will be played in a scramble format. A boxed lunch will be provided, and a cocktail party immediately follows the golf with awards and prizes. The cost is $250 per player or $1,000 per foursome. Participants may register online at http://www.efec.org. Even if you can’t make it, you can still donate at http://www.efec.org.

The Education Foundation of Eagle County is dedicated to improving the quality of public education by attracting, procuring, and effectively distributing resources in support of our schools, teachers and students.

The purpose of EFEC, a nonprofit organization, is to make specific and targeted recommendations to and to work in conjunction with the Eagle County School District to retain our most qualified teachers, preserve staffing levels, maintain smaller class sizes, conserve and improve teacher-student ratios, and to protect vital programs and curricula that have been or are in danger of being reduced or eliminated. Its top priority is to maintain an excellent learning experience for students in Eagle County.
