A total of 122 golfers, representing 38 companies donated close to $80,000 to the 11th golf tournament benefiting NEEF. The golfers played 18 holes at the Canyon Springs Golf Club on Friday, Sept. 16.

Comalander was most recently the Executive Director of Athletics for North East ISD. He retired in 2015 after serving 42 years at NEISD.

“When I found out it would be named after me, at first I thought someone was playing trick on me,” said Comalander.” It’s a tremendous honor, I mean how proud can a person be to represent a foundation that does great things for kids. We do a lot of things in the District and they’re all based around children, but the foundation is exactly connected to children. I’m so proud to represent them.”

The title sponsor of the tournament, Randolph Brooks Federal Credit Union (RBFCU) and RB Financial, gave of their time and funds to make the tournament a success.

“We have a phenomenal partnership with North East, we believe in their staff and we love to do anything that helps this district succeed,” said Steve Ynostrosa of RBFCU.

The NEEF board of directors worked hard to provide breakfast, door prizes and goodie bags for this enjoyable event.

“I want to thank everybody here today for their time and contribution of money,” said Mark Baublit, NEEF Chairman. “It means a lot that your heart is in line with our vision and that’s to give back to the kids and to impact their world.”

All of the funds received by NEEF will go toward grants to fund innovative projects for NEISD classrooms. For more information on the North East Educational Foundation, please click HERE.
