More than 1,600 students and parents attended the Ballantyne Rotary Club’s second annual Teacher’s Cup Volleyball event early this month, where efforts of local students and staff at area schools raised $2,250 in advance ticket sales.
Community House Middle, Ardrey Kell High and Ballantyne, Endhaven, Hawk Ridge and Polo Ridge elementary schools participated in the event and will all receive portions of the ticket sale proceeds.
All other proceeds from tickets sold at the door and sponsorship money will be used to provide funds to match a $3,000 grant the BRC received from Rotary District 7680. The combined $6,000 funds will be used to purchase LCD projectors, smart boards and supplies to support other area schools.
Ballantyne Elementary was this year’s winner of the Teacher’s Cup.
