GOLF TOURNAMENT

golf

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 10th, we held the 17th Annual Golf Tournament at Hidden Valley Golf Course. A light rain greeted the volunteers as we set up for the day, but by the time 98 golfers got on the course, the clouds parted and we had a glorious day on the links. With beautiful weather and a solid swing, Andy Hunter sank a hole-in-one on the 14th hole.

We sincerely thank all the golfers who attended and the many local businesses that donated door prizes or sponsored holes. A special thank you also to Tickner’s Moose River Canoe and Kayak, TAS Electronics of Yorkville and Meyda-Tiffany Lamps for their generous donations to our raffle.  Special thanks to alums David Abraham and Tim Fenton; although they were not able to golf this year, their support of our event was appreciated. Finally, thank you to all the volunteers who donated their time and effort to make this event possible, without you, this would not be possible. Through your commitment, the Whitesboro Alumni Association is able to support WCS graduates with substantial financial aid to further continue their studies. The proceeds from each tournament enable the Alumni Association to continue their scholarship awards, and as of June 2016, the Whitesboro Alumni Association has awarded $178,525 to 168 Whitesboro seniors since 1974!

Our Golf Tournament is our biggest fundraiser and is open to anyone who would like to support our scholarship program. The 18th Annual Golf Tournament is scheduled for Saturday, September 9, 2017; the first Saturday after Labor Day. We hope to see you there.
