For the past 33 years, Strelitz International Academy’s annual golf tournament has been a highlight in the Tidewater community. The tournament sees more than 100 players coming out to support Tidewater’s only Jewish Community Day School and traditionally raises more than $128,000 in sponsorships to directly benefit the students and families at SIA.

This year’s Bob Josephberg Classic, which is co-chaired by Ilana and Nathan Benson, offers players something extra to celebrate. In July, Strelitz International Academy was authorized as Tidewater’s first International Baccalaureate® World School for the Primary Years Programme. This is the culmination of years of planning, development, and implementation that would not have been possible without the support from United Jewish Federation of Tidewater, Tidewater Jewish Foundation, the Simon Family Foundation, 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 Tidewater’s future leaders.

Many levels of sponsorship opportunities are available, starting at $400 and ranging up to $5,500.

SIA’s 33rd Annual Golf Tournament welcomes all golfers and volunteers for a day of fun, golf, and an exciting awards reception with a delicious kosher buffet.

To register as a sponsor, player, or volunteer, contact Carly Glikman, director of development at Strelitz International Academy at CGlikman@StrelitzAcademy.org or 757-424-4327.
