Description

Please join us at the 12th Annual PulteGroup Classic benefitting the Frankie Lemmon School & Development Center of Raleigh!

For children with special needs and their families, the Frankie Lemmon School and Developmental Center provides life-changing education and support that leads to successful participation in family and community life and achievement of the child’s full potential. The Frankie Lemmon School has been serving children with special needs in Wake County for more than 53 years, and in the past four years, the school has grown from serving 25 students to 87 children for the 2018-19 school year.

We are proud to announce that 100% of the proceeds of the 2019 PulteGroup Classic will benefit the Frankie Lemmon School & Development Center. The school receives funds from the state that only cover approximately 25% of the operating costs for the organization. The remaining funding comes from fundraising, grants and donations, which allow the school to operate and maintain the incomparable education that the school is known for. Our goal is to raise $50,000 this year to help meet the school's most urgent needs: to furnish and equip a new 3 year-old classroom and provide therapy services for the children enrolled.

The classroom would open in January 2020 and would be designed for children with special needs who have recently turned 3-years-old. The costs associated with opening a new classroom are quite extensive. as furniture, materials, and specialized technology will all need to purchased and installed. The addition of this classroom would be long lasting and would benefit 160+ children over the next 20 years.

Projected cost to open a new classroom:

  • Classroom furniture and educational materials- $15,000

  • Technology (teacher laptop, 2 iPads, SMART board, assistive technology)- $16,500

  • Adaptive feeding equipment and supplies- $500

  • 6 months of therapy for 8 students (Speech, Occupational, and Physical) - $20,000

  • Total projected cost - $52,000

  • Teacher salaries and benefits are not included in this budget and will be covered using other funding sources.

Any additional funds raised would be used to cover the cost of Music Therapy for the entire school for the 2019-20 school year ($16,000).

Through your support and participation in this year's golf tournament, we can help Frankie Lemmon meet these goals and provide much-needed services for their students. Thank you for your participation and your support of the Frankie Lemmon School & Development Center! We look forward to seeing you on September 30!
