DCHS golf tourney raises funds for Christian school

Good weather and a Jack Nicklaus-designed course marked the day for the Delmarva Christian High School Annual Golf Classic, held at the Peninsula Golf & Country Club in Millsboro on June 9. The DCHS Annual Golf Classic hosted 128 golfers for 18 holes of golf.

“Delmarva Christian High School and its Board of Directors are committed to providing a rigorous Christian education while keeping tuition as low as possible,” representatives noted. “The DCHS Annual Golf Classic plays an important role in providing funds necessary to operate at a high level of excellence while providing an opportunity to as many families as possible.”

More than 45 sponsors and eight volunteers came alongside to support the school, provide food and awards.

“Our sponsors are the key to our success and very much appreciated. We don’t take their investments or our relationship with them lightly. It’s through their partnership that we are able to grow our need-based tuition grant fund. This fund allows us the opportunity to offer more need-based tuition grants to area students who desire a high-quality Christian education,” said Bob Bennett, director of Stewardship at DCHS.

Reflecting on the success of this year’s event, Principal Mike Vonhof noted, “The greatest thing about the Golf Classic is the opportunity to connect with so many different people who genuinely care about the mission of DCHS. It is great to enjoy golf and a meal together and even better knowing that we are supporting families who desire an excellent Christ-centered education for their children.

“DCHS is grateful to our Director of Stewardship, Bob Bennett, for his work organizing the event, to the businesses and individuals who supported it and to the Peninsula for hosting it.”
