Golf Tournament Raises $25,000 for Atlantic Cape Students

October 17, 2011

The 2011 Atlantic Cape Community College Scramble ‘Fore’ Scholarships golf tournament raised more than $25,000 for student aid and Foundation operations. Held Oct. 6 at Cape May National Golf Club in Cape May, the tournament drew 100 players.

Proceeds from the event will be used for scholarships for students attending Atlantic Cape and for Foundation operations. Caesars Entertainment, Cape May National Golf Club, the Chalfonte Hotel and WMGM NBC-40 were major sponsors of the tournament.

Atlantic Cape established the Foundation in 1978 as a 501(c)3 nonprofit charity to build a broad base of financial support for its programs and services. Foundation members are drawn from local industry and small businesses and represent a broad cross-section of active leaders in the community. The Foundation has raised more than $2.5 million for scholarships, Foundation operations and to enhance academic programs and the campus environment. Annually, the Foundation provides nearly $200,000 for institutional scholarships, grants and emergency help.
