In support of Strelitz International Academy’s 31st Annual Golf Tournament, more affectionately known as the Bob Josephberg Classic, 84 golfers played 18 holes at the Bayville Golf Club, one of Virginia’s finest golf courses. The awards reception following the contest included a buffet dinner from the Cardo Cafe and impressive prizes for the tournament winners and the raffle.

Many community members, led by long-standing advocates Bob Josephberg, Angela Jenkins, and Ilana and Nathan Benson, tournament chairs, united to support the day and Strelitz International Academy (SIA).

“The annual golf tournament is our school’s biggest fundraiser,” says David Leon, SIA president. “Thanks to 105 generous sponsors and 65 raffle prize donors, we raised more than $135,000 to help make a Strelitz International Academy education accessible for all students. Our donors have invested in the global leaders of tomorrow.”

“We are grateful to all of the volunteers, school trustees, and SIA and Campus staff,” says David Cardon, SIA president-elect, “who assist with the months of planning, fundraising, and finally, the rigorous execution of the tournament to make it a very successful event, year after year.”

The 2019–2020 school year is off to a good start as the school celebrates its 65th anniversary as Tidewater’s premier academic Jewish community day school.

Reenergized under the Strelitz name that unifies the Early Years and Primary Years divisions, the school has launched its candidacy to become certified as an International Baccalaureate World School. “The school would not be where it is today without the generous support of the community,” says Heather Moore, head of school. “And, with its continued investment, we will serve the community for at least another 65 years.”

Mark calendars now for Strelitz International Academy’s 32nd Annual Golf Tournament on Tuesday, September 15, 2020 at Bayville Golf Club.
