KANNAPOLIS — The Rowan-Cabarrus Community College Foundation Golf Classic is scheduled for Friday, Oct. 212022, at The Club at Irish Creek in Kannapolis.

Proceeds from the event allow the foundation to carry out its commitment to raise money to fund student scholarships, necessary updates to technology and equipment across the college’s campuses in Rowan and Cabarrus counties, and workforce development programs in areas such as advanced technology and healthcare. During the last academic year, the Foundation awarded nearly $280,000 in scholarship funding to support nearly 400 students with tuition, fees, books and related needs.

“We’re excited to welcome golfers and sponsors to participate as we host this year’s tournament at The Club at Irish Creek for the first time,” Paige Crowe, this year’s tournament co-chair, said in a news release. “By participating in a fun-filled day of golf or contributing through a sponsorship, they will make a real difference in our community. There is no better return on investment than to allow someone to reach their dreams and create a better life.”

A variety of sponsorship opportunities will be available for both golfers and non-golfers, including a new option to contribute in honor, memory or recognition of a friend or loved one.

Registration and practice tees open at 8 a.m. on Friday, Oct. 21. The program and shotgun start will begin at 10:30 a.m., followed by lunch on the course, a putting contest, 19th Hole Happy Hour and an awards ceremony to be held at 3:30 p.m.

“I am very proud of the work of the Rowan-Cabarrus Community College Foundation, and I look forward to another exciting Golf Classic,” said Dr. Carol S. Spalding, president of Rowan-Cabarrus. “We appreciate the community’s continued support of this event to ensure the success of our students.”
