Please get the word out about our Berkeley High School Annual Golf Tournament that makes it possible for us to have FRESHMAN SPORTS.

Get involved by sponsoring a hole, letting other businesses know about the sponsorship opportunity, playing in the tournament, making a donation to the event, or purchasing raffle tickets.
Help keep freshman sports alive at Berkeley High!!!  In the past we almost lost ALL freshman athletics. Thanks to Manish Doshi for organizing this wonderful golf tournament to raise funds. Please do your part and help at any level you are able to contribute.
