Rocky Mount Daycare Foundation Builders Academy Childcare Development Center recently held its first annual Golf Classic at Belmont Lake Golf Club in Rocky Mount.
Approximately $1,600 was raised to support Foundation Builders Academy’s nonprofit affiliate, FD Building Foundations Inc.
The weather was sunny and cool, which allowed 20 golfers to complete 18 holes of golf and participate in activities including the Wingspan and 50/50 Raffle, Putting Contest, Longest Drive and Closest to the Pin Competitions. Congratulations to the winners of this year’s tournament — Chris Pearson, Todd Gardner, Robert Jones and Curtis Battle. Second Place Winners of the tournament were Izel Jenkins, Frederick Hyman, Vernon Brown and Zollie Harris.
A huge thank you goes out to every volunteer, sponsor and donor who helped to make the golf tournament an exciting and successful fundraising event. We look forward to our second annual Golf Classic Tournament in 2020.
All funds raised will be used to enhance Foundation Builders Academy Outdoor Learning Environment, a space where learning can be self-guided and catalyzed by the outdoors and nature. Our goal is to create an inclusive outdoor learning space for children and families where gardening is the focal point. We envision a space where children not only participate in growing their own food, but where they are also motivated to taste, eat, and enjoy the produce resulting from their efforts.
The enhancements will include equipment supporting natural and self-guided play for children ages 1 to 5 years old, a dedicated area for sensory play, landscaping and spaces for education and community building.
