Held at the Portsmouth Country Club on Thursday, September 15, the 11th Annual New Heights Golf Tournament raised more than $21,000 to provide scholarships and support a wide variety of experiential programs for more than 1,100 area youth.
Founded in 1987, New Heights recently unveiled its school year programming, which includes an emphasis on STEAM. Whereas STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math, the ‘A’ in STEAM refers to art. “Our programming has really excited the larger Seacoast community, including parents and sponsors,” said New Heights Executive Director Tracey Tucker. “This annual tournament is so important for us, because it supports the need to provide scholarships to ensure all youth have access to New Heights programs. It also allows us to constantly innovate our programs to best support our youth and families.”
Major sponsors for this year’s tournament included Lunch Sponsor Ocean Properties, Ltd., Beverage Cart Sponsor Eastern Bank, and Contest Sponsors Dauphin Law and Fishnet Media. Corporate sponsors included Ellis Insurance Agency, Lake Street Advisors, Ian Frederick (Financial Advisor with MassMutual of Northern New England), Mortgage Master, Prime Buchholz and Saltwater Creative Agency. Hole Sponsors were Avery Insurance, Guyton Group and The Friendly Toast/Goodwin Hospitality.
“We also had a number of in-kind sponsors and were again led by an incredible team of volunteer committee members,” added Tucker. “New Heights is very grateful for the continued support of the entire Seacoast community.”
