“I hope you will join the foundation for a fun-filled and meaningful effort,” said Paul Brown, one of the tournament’s co-chairs and member of the foundation board of directors. “The Golf Classic is one way you can give to the college and its students, many of whom would not be able to attend college without your continued care and support.”

“The Golf Classic helps provide funding to support academic programming and capital needs, grants for veterans and other needs of the college and the local community,” said Jenn Selby, director of philanthropy and the arts.
