The Clover Park Technical College Foundation’s 16th Annual Golf Tournament was an astounding success with 144 golfers and more than 40 community volunteers dedicated to helping students at Clover Park Technical College stay in school and achieve their academic goals.
The Eagle Pride Golf Course on Fort Lewis was host to this year’s event which raised more than $48,000 for Clover Park Technical College Foundation scholarships and emergency-need grants.
Emeritus Foundation Director and Past College Trustee Bill Hamilton and his family generously sponsored a plan entitled Sponsor-a-Student. Golfers and volunteers were allowed five door-prize tickets and encouraged to donate to support the emergency-needs of students, which are on the rise due to the current economy. Last year, more than 250 students received emergency grants from the Clover Park Technical College Foundation, helping students remain in school.
“This event is all about helping students succeed,” said David Harkness, president of the Foundation Board of Directors and owner of Harkness Furniture. “I am proud to say that year after year our local community continues to pull together, raising more money to help students complete their education.”
