Co-chaired by David Leon and Babbi Bangel, the 36th Annual Strelitz International Golf Tournament, proudly known as the “Bob Josephberg Classic” is set to be the highlight of the season.

This isn’t just another golf tournament; it’s the cornerstone of SIA’s fundraising efforts and a cherished tradition embraced by the entire Tidewater community. Each year, the event draws more than 100 players and 100 sponsors, raising $150,000 to support the students and families of Strelitz International Academy.

This past school year, Strelitz International Academy celebrated remarkable achievements. As a result of the school’s exceptional Jewish education and International Baccalaureate curriculum, enrollment has soared to record levels since its move to the Sandler Family Campus. 

Serving students from infancy through fifth grade, SIA lays a solid foundation for future leaders, deeply rooted in the values and support of the Tidewater Jewish community.

The annual golf tournament presents an opportunity for businesses and individuals to make a significant impact. Sponsorship opportunities range from $400 to $10,500, catering to a variety of giving levels. The event is open to all golf enthusiasts and volunteers, promising a day packed with excitement, including a silent auction and an awards reception featuring a delectable kosher dinner.

 Participation is more than just a game; it’s an investment in the future of local Jewish children and the strength of the community.
