The 34th Annual Strelitz International Golf Tournament, affectionately known as the Bob Josephberg Classic, is slated to take place next month.

For the past 34 years, Strelitz International Academy’s annual golf tournament has been looked forward to by the entire Tidewater community. The tournament usually has more than 100 players coming out to support Tidewater’s only Jewish Community Day School. It often raises more than $154,000 in sponsorships to directly benefit the students and families at SIA.

This year’s tournament is co-chaired by David Leon and Babbi Bangel.

Throughout the 2021–2022 academic year, Strelitz International Academy successfully completed its first year as Tidewater’s only International Baccalaureate® World School for the Primary Years Programme. This is the culmination of years of planning, development, and implementation that was made possible by support from United Jewish Federation of Tidewater, Tidewater Jewish Foundation, the Simon Family Foundation, the Strelitz and Dozoretz families, the Gordon family, the Krichman family, the Kramer family, friends in the community, SIA’s board of trustees, and SIA staff. With SIA’s new IB® status, the school is positioned to be the top primary year’s institution for growing the region’s future leaders.

For the Golf Tournament, many levels of sponsorship opportunities are available—from $400 up to $5,500.

SIA’s 34th Annual Golf Tournament welcomes all golfers and volunteers for a day of fun, golf, and an exciting awards reception with a delicious kosher buffet.
