Golfing Organizations to Provide Charlottesville Students with Computers


CHARLOTTESVILLE, Virginia (WVIR) – Organizations are coming together to ensure that students at Charlottesville High School and C4K have the technology they need to be successful.

Innovative Software Solutions, WillowTree, and C4K are fundraising to buy computers for students who don’t have them. The campaign, Drive Fore STEM, began after Charlie Rogers, CEO of Innovative Software Solutions, received a computer while in college.

“I said ‘someday when I do, I want to do the same,’ and that’s why we created Drive Fore STEM,” Rogers said.

Now Rogers is moving forward by hosting a golf tournament at the Glenmore Club for this cause.

“Drive Fore STEM aims to bring the community together to foster communication, diversity and unity, while funding STEM opportunities for our young people,” said Rogers.

Participating businesses gathered on Monday September 20 to play golf at Glenmore. Some of them sponsor holes, donate money, and ultimately fundraise for students involved in C4K and Charlottesville High School who can’t afford a computer.
