CPS 26th Annual Golf Scholarship Tournament

Tournament Bigger and Better!
Commonwealth-Parkville School celebrated its 26th Annual Golf Scholarship Tournament on Friday, March 25th. The event drew close to 140 returning and new golfers to Grand Reserve Championship Golf Course for a day of fun golf for a great cause. Thanks to the support of many companies and individuals, the school raised close to $120,000 which will further help expand the CPS scholarship program for deserving students.  This year’s major sponsors were: Aeronet, Lexus, Nationwide, and To Go Stores (alpha).
 
The day started with our student ushers greeting players—while registration was underway— and distributing our hefty goodie bags which included a CPS customized golf shirt designed by CPS graphic artist, Kenia Colón.  Players enjoyed breakfast sponsored by To Go Stores and Pan Pepín.
 
 
 
Raising the Bar - A Big Thanks!
The tournament continues to raise the bar in terms of net proceeds, number of players, support, and quality of player raffle prizes. Net proceeds have steadily increased over the past 5 years, earmarked exclusively towards the CPS Scholarship Fund. 
 
The tournament's success is largely due to the support of sponsors, players, and volunteers including the Golf Committee and friends of CPS who all come together to ensure a successful and seamlessly executed event. CPS is thankful and hopes to continue to positively impact the lives of students, making a quality CPS education available to them.

On the Green - 18-Hole Round of Golf
Luckily, Mr. Sun was on full display and made for a perfect day of golf where adult and student players converged in a day filled with great golf.  We couldn’t be happier to see our proud Comet families bonding.  The course was filled with food and beverages! The vast assortment of food throughout the golf course included two “lechónes a la vara” courtesy of Aeronet and the Villamil-Durán Family, delicious sandwiches by El Churry, tasty Puerto Rican Kikuet turnovers, and savory hot dogs and burgers from Pan Pepín.
 
On the green, golfers had the opportunity to compete in Gross, Net, Parent/Child category,  the longest drive and closest to the pin contest, as well as, two hole-in-one challenges that had participants shooting – some with a little help from mulligans, gimmies, or a shot by Pro Fernando Bobonis, for a 2022 Lexus IS 300 luxury sedan, sponsored by Lexus.

Banquet & Awards Ceremony
The 18-hole round of golf was followed by the banquet activity where golfers enjoyed a sit-down dinner along with an exclusive beverage station sponsored by Méndez & Co., a raffle with fabulous prizes, and auction options, including a lavish 82’ Yacht donated by Paradis Yacht owned by CPS parents Valerie Rodríguez and Juan Carlos Vargas and boxing gloves autographed by world champion and #CometDad Félix Juan “Tito” Trinidad.  This year’s award took on a special meaning as all trophies were prepared by CPS students in the Printmaking Class taught by Mr. José Cruz at the Commonwealth Campus.

Techniques Employed : Dry Point Etching & Watercolor

Dry Point Etching | Net & Gross Trophies
Artists: Entire Class
 
The Dry Etching technique is usually created on copper plates, but in workshops and schools, the use of acrylic sheets is most common.  An image is scratched onto a plate with a needle tool, called a scriber.
 
Watercolor | Parent & Child Trophies 
Artist: Inés Ramiréz, CPS Class of 2024
 
The watercolor medium has been used by artists for centuries. The design of the Parent/Child trophies was painted by Inés, in transparent watercolor.  The idea is to let the whiteness of the watercolor paper illuminate. Henceforth, transparency, as opposed to opaque watercolor, means that the pigments have white in them for the opacity.
