Early bird registration ends Monday for the Poway Unified School District Foundation’s 13th annual Partners in Education Golf Classic.
The event will be held Friday, April 30 at the Rancho Bernardo Inn, 17550 Bernardo Oaks Drive. Registration, breakfast and the putting contest begin at 7 a.m., with tee times starting at 8 a.m.
The golf classic raises funds for the PUSD Foundation, which supports students districtwide, said Dolores Canizales, Partners in Education manager. Proceeds from the event will enable the foundation to support science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics initiatives throughout PUSD.
Some of these initiatives include:
- Junior Achievement’s Biz Town, the Company Program and Finance Park;
- academic competitions like FIRST robotics, Lego League, Science Olympiad, Cyber Patriot and the High School Innovation Challenge;
- business tours;
- college and career days;
- internships for students; and
- externships for teachers.
In addition to golf, there are also several contests, as well as a silent auction. The contests are hole-in-one, closest to the pin plus longest drive for men and for women.
Early bird tickets for a single golfer are $199 and $796 for an early bird foursome. After March 1, registration will increase to $225 for single golfers and $999 for a foursome. A ticket includes green fees, breakfast and lunch on the course, contests, player tee prize gift plus a drink ticket, Canizales said. The foursome ticket also includes a golf cart. An additional “super ticket” is available for $40, which includes entry into the putting contest, one Mulligan, an extra drink ticket and 10 opportunity drawing tickets.

The PUSD Foundation is also looking for event sponsors. Several levels of sponsorship are available, ranging from the title sponsor for $10,000 to a hole sponsor for $350.
