The Haitian Education Support Team Golf Tournament was held this past May at the Honey Bee Golf Club located at 2500 S. Independence Boulevard in Virginia Beach. Awards were made for longest drive on Hole 18, closest to the pin on Hole 2, and winning team. There were also prizes for hole-in-one shots and everyone got an event T-shirt. Our incredible sponsors paid for meals and sponsored holes. It was an outstanding afternoon of golf and companionship for a great cause. The proceeds are being used to sustain education improvements within the parochial schools of the Diocese of Hinche. Even though we have accomplished much, more needs to be done to provide the children with an education that prepares them for the future.
The Haitian Education Support Team (HEST) works with its counterpart, the Bureau d'Education (BDE) of the Diocese of Hinche to fund teacher training and other education improvements in more than seventy parochial schools. HEST is a component of the Catholic Diocese of Richmond. For more information about us, please click here.
