The Berkeley County School District is again urging community members to get out on the course to support public education in Berkeley County.
The Ken York office of Edward Jones Investments and Berkeley County School District will host the second annual “Edward Jones Stuff the Bus” charity golf tournament at Crowfield Golf and Country Club on June 14.
All proceeds benefit the district’s “Stuff the Bus Berkeley!” supply drive.
The Stuff the Bus program raises funds and supplies for students in need. It has been a success in past years and would not be possible without the support of local community members and businesses.
“The Stuff the Bus golf tournament is a great way for members of the community to interact with district principals and administrators,” said BCSD Superintendent Rodney Thompson. “This is the second year we are holding the tournament and are looking to make this year’s more bigger and better than ever before.”
The June 14 golf tournament allows for players to not only enjoy a nice round of golf but also give back. The cost is $75 per player or $300 per foursome. Registration can be completed online or forms can be picked up at the district office.

“To ensure that our children get a good education with adequate resources and supplies, community members must support our local schools,” Edward Jones Financial Advisor Ken York said. “We are proud to support the academic development of young minds in the community.”
The second event of the campaign will be the first Shaggin’ Under the Stars event held on July 18. The event will be held at the Old Santee Canal Park from 6 to 9 p.m. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased through the district office.
“Stuff the Bus Berkeley!” ends on Aug. 3 with the third annual Community Rally Day.
