Oct. 11 Golf Tournament to Benefit Atlantic Cape Students

July 30, 2013

The 2013 Atlantic Cape Community College Scramble “Fore” Scholarships golf tournament is planned for Friday, Oct. 11, at the Cape May National Golf Club in Cape May. Partnering with the Atlantic Cape Foundation, CMNGC will host the tournament to support student scholarships and Foundation operations.

The tournament will follow a scramble format, beginning with a shotgun-start at
11 a.m. Player fees, which include a complimentary gift, lunch and a dinner awards banquet, are $150 per person and $500 per foursome.

The Chalfonte Hotel in historic Cape May will host and cater an awards dinner in the acclaimed Magnolia Room. Dessert will be prepared by students at Atlantic Cape’s Academy of Culinary Arts.

Golfers can participate in a variety of skills challenges, including: chip-to-the-boat, putting green, closest-to-the-pin and longest drive contests. Individuals and businesses can also participate in six sponsorship package opportunities ranging from $125 to $5,000. Last year’s event raised $25,000 for Atlantic Cape scholarships and Foundation operations.

Located on Route 9 near renowned Victorian Cape May, and centrally located along one of the world’s most famous bird migration flyways, Cape May National has been recognized as one of the most naturally beautiful courses in the United States.

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 nearly $3 million for scholarships, Foundation operations and to enhance academic programs and the campus environment. Annually, the Foundation provides $270,000 for institutional scholarships, grants and emergency help and another $70,000 to support college educational endeavors.
