LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - The 7th annual Tee It Up For Teachers is coming up next week.

The tournament is sponsored by Lufkin Industries, and while competitors are out swinging their clubs, they will also be raising money for education and training for the teachers in the six  Angelina County school districts.       

The funds will go toward securing the additional resources needed for educating children right here in our own classrooms.

Amanda Anderson with the Angelina County Chamber of Commerce said, "We actually have more teams than we've had in the past. We appreciate the support from the community and willingness to help out with Tee it up for Teachers. It's a great cause. The education and the training will go back into our Angelina County classrooms you know it's priceless."

The golfers will have lunch, tee off at noon at Crown Colony, and then spend the afternoon golfing for a good cause.
