The 13th annual Dollars for Scholars Golf Classic, held Friday at Deer Park Golf Course in Yorkton, raised an estimated $17,500 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 $240,000 since the first tournament in 2006.
“This event is a vital part of our scholarship initiative,” said Dollars for Scholars chairperson Brendan Wagner. “Thanks to the generosity of our golfers and sponsors, more students can earn scholarships as they learn close to home and start their careers.”
The Dollars for Scholars Golf Classic receives support from numerous sources. Banquet sponsor RH Electric and Platinum sponsors Farrell Agencies, SaskTel, and RBC Foundation played key roles in the success of the tournament. The College also thanks the dozens of other sponsors for their financial support and prize donations.
A total of 105 golfers supported the scholarship fund with their entry fees and enjoyed a mostly hot and sunny day, weathering a brief mid-afternoon rain delay.
The 14th annual Dollars for Scholars Golf Classic will be planned for late June 2019.
