RCCC Foundation to host golf fundraiser
SALISBURY — The Rowan-Cabarrus Community College Foundation will hold its ninth annual Golf Classic on Oct. 20 at the Country Club of Salisbury.
The Rowan-Cabarrus foundation is committed to raising money for the college, providing student scholarships, updates to technology and equipment across the campuses in Rowan and Cabarrus counties, and workforce development programs in areas such as advanced technology and health care.
“I hope you will join the foundation for a fun-filled and meaningful effort,” said Sarah Walker, director of governance, foundation operations and public information. “The Golf Classic is one way you can contribute to the success of our college and our students, many of whom would not be able to attend college without your continued care and support.”
Registration and practice tees open at 9:30 a.m. Oct. 20. Lunch will be served at 11 a.m. with dinner and the awards ceremony at 5 p.m. Program and shotgun start will begin at noon.
A catered lunch will be provided by Chick-fil-A.
Throughout the day, golfers will have the opportunity to win prizes by competing in contests for the longest drive and closest to the pin. There will be a silent auction featuring a Kiawah Island getaway.
“The Rowan-Cabarrus Community College Foundation resources support the mission of the college and are channeled into scholarships and other student assistance, support for academic programming and capital needs, grants for veterans and other needs of the college and the local community,” said Walker. “Nearly 250 students received scholarship funds this year, which assisted with academic, continuing education and student emergency scholarships.”
“We should all be very proud of the work the Rowan-Cabarrus Community College Foundation does to support the college,” said college President Carol S. Spalding. “We sincerely appreciate the commitment of our foundation golf committee co-chairs Paul Brown, Harold Earnhardt and Peter Bynum and know that an investment in the foundation is an investment in the lives of our students.”
Supporting sponsors are Rogers Builders and World Fibers.
