The annual golf tournament was the idea of past President, Ron Hovey Sr. ’52, who immediately recruited his classmate and fellow Board member, Ron Schoen ‘52. Together they devised a vision by which the proceeds from the annual Whitesboro Alumni Association golf tournament would be used to build the Scholarship Fund to support the scholarships awarded by the Association. The inaugural tournament took place in September of 2000, and the annual golf tournament was born!
On Saturday, September 8th, we held the 19th Annual Alumni Golf Tournament at Hidden Valley Golf Course in Whitesboro. The day was sunny, and the air was a bit brisk. We had 31 teams of golfers scrambling to grab lunch before heading to their assigned holes for the 11:00 shotgun start.
We sincerely thank all the golfers who loyally show up every year to support our efforts to raise scholarship funds. We would also like to thank the many local businesses that donated door prizes, sponsored holes, and provided goodies for the golfer goody bags. A special thank you this year to Usherwood Office Technologies for stepping up as a corporate sponsor, and to Carbone Subaru for providing a car for the tournament. It added so much excitement to have golfers come so close to winning $20,000 toward the purchase or lease of a new car, and to have wonderful prizes available to win at a number of the holes. Additional fun was added when four randomly selected golfers were given the opportunity to shoot for a $50,000 prize! A final thank you to Kevin McGrellis for being a wonderful host and to the volunteers who donated their time and efforts to make this event happen. Without you, all this would not be possible. Through your commitmnt, the Whitesboro Alumni Association is able to support WCS graduates with substantial financial assistance in continuing their studies. This year we raised close to $5000 for the scholarship fund!
Our golf tournament is our biggest fundraiser and is open to anyone who would like to support our scholarship program. The 20th Annual Alumni Golf Tournament is scheduled for Saturday, September 7, 2019. We hope to see you there!
