Register to Play in Scramble ‘Fore’ Scholarships Golf Tournament; Variety of Raffle Prizes include Overnight Stays, Rounds of Golf and Gift Cards

September 9, 2016

There’s still time to register a four-person team to participate in the 2016 Atlantic Cape Community College Scramble “Fore” Scholarships golf tournament, Friday, Oct. 7, at the Cape May National Golf Club.

Registration begins at 11:30 a.m., followed by a scramble format, with a shotgun-start at 12:30 p.m.

Player fees, which include a complimentary gift, lunch and awards dinner, are $150 per person or $500 per foursome. Golfers can participate in a variety of skills challenges, including closest-to-the-pin and longest drive contests. Individuals and businesses can also support the event through sponsorship opportunities ranging from $125 to $5,000.

An awards dinner, catered by the historic Chalfonte Hotel in Cape May, will follow at 6 p.m. For dessert, Atlantic Cape’s Academy of Culinary Arts students will prepare a variety of decadent treats. Lazy Eye Distillery will be on site, providing samples of their hand-crafted vodka for the event. Tickets to the awards dinner only are $50 and can be purchased online at www.atlantic.edu/golf.

A variety of raffle prizes will be available, including an overnight stay and dinner at Resorts Casino Hotel; gift cards to The Crab Trap, The Lobster House and White House Subs; brunch for four at the Historic Smithville Inn; a six-month membership to Tilton Fitness; a foursome at Atlantic City Country Club and Wildwood Golf and Country Club, and more. In honor of the college’s upcoming 50th anniversary, a few surprises will also be added to the tournament.

Roman Osadchuck, event co-chair, said, “Each year I look forward to this event and exceeding our goal. Last year’s event raised over $35,000 for Atlantic Cape scholarships, our highest grossing tournament in the history of this event.”

This year, Osadchuck and co-chair Charles Pessagno hope to exceed last year’s fundraising efforts. Pessagno stated, “Our goal is reached by getting the community involved; their investment enables the Atlantic Cape Foundation to continue to provide scholarships to our local students who need it most.”

Cape May National is celebrating its 25th anniversary and has been recognized as one of the most naturally beautiful courses in the United States. The course, nicknamed “The Natural,” surrounds a 50-acre private bird sanctuary and is centrally located along one of the world’s most famous bird migration flyways.
