Supporters of the Paris High School golf team are launching fund-raising for the 2018 season on Friday night with a pork tenderloin dinner from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. in the cafeteria a part of the school’s Court-Warming basketball game against Scotland County.

Paris high school golf and baseball are self-funded as a result of budget cuts several years ago. The team needs about $6,500 to $8,000 each year, said golf coach Jeremy Skinner. The dinner is a free-will donation event that has raised upward to $1,000 in past years.

“The parents really help out and the students that play golf do as well we do fundraisers such as picking up trash after the tractor pull our dinner and our big one each year is the Mac Donovan tournament in summer,” Skinner said. “Our parents also drive the golfers to the matches the help save on Transportation costs so we don’t have to use a bus.”
