Event to benefit victim’s son
ST. JOHNSBURY — St. Johnsbury Academy is co-sponsoring a charity golf tournament to benefit the young son of slain teacher Melissa Jenkins.
The academy is teaming up with the Omni Mount Washington Resort in Bretton Woods, N.H., to host “Tee It Up for Ty” at the resort May 12.
Jenkins was a science teacher at the academy, who was allegedly lured from her home and killed. Her 2-year-old son, Ty, was found sleeping and unharmed in her car, which was still running on the side of the road.
All proceeds from the fundraiser will go to the Melissa Jenkins Memorial Trust.
The benefit will include a barbecue and silent auction in addition to the 18-hole, four-person scramble format tournament. Actor Luis Guzman, who is the parent of St. Johnsbury Academy students, will be the master of ceremonies.
To register for the tournament as a team or individual, call the resort’s golf clubhouse at 603-278-4653 or register online at brettonwoods.com/ty. Registration fees are $85 per person for those who wish to golf. To attend just the barbecue and silent auction is $25.
The benefit is accepting sponsors starting at $300 as well as monetary donations and silent auction items.MORE IN This Just In
