Dollars for Scholars Golf Classic raises $21,500

The 11th annual Dollars for Scholars Golf Classic, held Friday at Deer Park Golf Course in Yorkton, raised an estimated $21,500 for the Parkland College scholarship fund.

The Dollars for Scholars Golf Classic is the College’s largest single scholarship fundraiser. The event has now raised at least $20,000 five years running. Proceeds from past events helped Parkland College award almost $200,000 in scholarships in 2015-16.

The weather was perfect as 115 golfers hit the links at Deer Park Golf Course in Yorkton.

“This event is huge for our students,” said Dollars for Scholars organizer Brendan Wagner. “All the money raised stays in the Parkland Region, benefitting students who want to learn here, stay here, and build a career here.”

The Dollars for Scholars Golf Classic is made possible by generous contributions from numerous community supporters, volunteers, and sponsors. Banquet sponsor R H Electric and Platinum sponsors Farrell Agencies, Logan Stevens Construction, SaskTel, and RBC Financial Group played key roles in the success of the tournament.

Paul Keys tees off for the City of Yorkton team. Twenty-nine teams entered the tournament.

Parkland College also thanks the 19 Gold Sponsors, 10 Silver sponsors, dozens of Bronze sponsors, and two hole-in-one sponsors for their donations of cash and prizes. A total of 115 golfers supported the scholarship fund with their entry fees.

The 12th annual Dollars for Scholars Golf Classic is tentatively scheduled for June 23, 2017 at Deer Park.
