The 14th annual Dollars for Scholars Golf Classic, held Thursday at Deer Park Golf Course in Yorkton, raised an estimated $15,100 for the Parkland College scholarship fund.
Eighty-six golfers made the best of the day on the course despite persistent rain showers. Participants supported the fundraiser with their registration fees, contest entries, and raffle ticket purchases.
The Dollars for Scholars Golf Classic is the College’s largest scholarship fundraiser. Parkland College has now raised over $255,000 since the first tournament in 2006.
“This is a very important part of our scholarship program,” said Dollars for Scholars chairperson Brendan Wagner. “The community gives us so much support, and it’s that generosity that helps more local students get their post-secondary education close to home.”
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.
The 15th annual Dollars for Scholars Golf Classic is tentatively planned for Friday, June 19, 2020.
