The event raised about $10,000 to help provide financial aid for Mariners families. Students sold numbered golf balls for $10 each, and prizes were awarded for balls that fell at designated spots.

“About 10% of Mariners families receive scholarships at any given time, and about 15% to 20% of families need help during a tough patch during their time at the school,” interim Head of School Todd Perkins said in a statement.
