Park Academy’s golf tourney raises thousands

Park Academy’s Drive for Dyslexia last month raised $23,000 for school scholarships.

The community came out in force to support the prep school for children with dyslexia and language learning challenges, with 112 people participating in the tourney at Reserve Vineyard & Golf Club in Aloha.

The event made a dent in the fundraising goals for 2014-15 school year, but many students still need financial assistance.

To help, visit www.parkacademy.org or call the school’s development office at 503-594-8779.
