The 12th annual Dollars for Scholars Golf Classic, held Friday at Deer Park Golf Course in Yorkton, raised an estimated $19,700 for the Parkland College scholarship fund.
The Dollars for Scholars Golf Classic is the College’s largest single scholarship fundraiser. Parkland College has now raised over $225,000 since the first tournament in 2006.
“Every year we are reminded of the generosity of the people and businesses in the Parkland region,” event organizer Brendan Wagner said. “Our golfers and sponsors are helping students who want to stay close to home to learn, hone their skills, and start their careers.”
The Dollars for Scholars Golf Classic receives support from numerous sources. Banquet sponsor R H Electric and Platinum sponsors Farrell Agencies, SaskTel, and RBC Foundation played key roles in the success of the tournament.
The College also thanks the 18 Gold Sponsors, 14 Silver sponsors, and dozens of Bronze sponsors and two hole-in-one partners for their donations of cash and prizes. A total of 107 golfers braved the inclement weather and supported the scholarship fund with their entry fees.
The 13th annual Dollars for Scholars Golf Classic is tentatively scheduled for June 22, 2018.
