LAKEWOOD – Nearly 100 golfers turned out for the 10th annual Golf Outing and Awards Dinner, hosted by the Manchester Township Educational Foundation and The Hesse Companies at Eagle Ridge Golf Course.

Proceeds from the event benefit the Manchester Township School District. The grants provide technology – iPads, Kindles, computers, projectors, and MOBI computer tablets – as well as musical instruments, art supplies, math and science materials, and district-wide WiFi to the schools.

The educational foundation has distributed more than $150,000 in school and classroom grants and $168,000 in scholarships to 99 graduates, with the help of local businesses, organizations and individuals.

The district’s elementary schools were presented with $32,500 in grant funds for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics labs. Ridgeway has a STEAM Lab and will add new items this year; MTES and Whiting will create their labs, based on Ridgeway’s.
