Golf Classic features contests, prizes and more May 4
The Palm Beach State College Foundation will host its annual Golf Classic at Mayacoo Lakes Country Club in West Palm Beach on Friday, May 4. Registrations to play are currently on sale and sponsorship opportunities are available.
Themed “Swing for Student Success,” the tournament is one of the Foundation’s premier corporate fundraising events. Proceeds will support the College’s STEAM initiative to help meet the growing need for local, skilled professionals in science, technology, engineering, arts and math.
“As a trusted partner of building quality learning environments in the community, Moss is excited to participate in the Palm Beach State College Foundation 2018 Golf Classic and support STEAM student achievement and its academic priorities,” said Brett Atkinson, Moss executive vice president. “STEAM graduates are instrumental to the construction industry as they help to strengthen and inspire innovative design and development. They are critical to building and maintaining a robust economy in this diversified market, and we are proud to support the College’s initiative to prepare these students for the workforce that awaits them.”
The tournament’s shotgun start is at 12:30 p.m. and the awards reception begins at 6 p.m. or immediately after play. The Classic will be a scrabble format, featuring contests during tournament play, including hole-in-one competitions sponsored by Al Packer Ford. The top hole-in-one prizes will be a new 2018 Lincoln MKC and a five-day, four-night Carnival Cruise. Prizes also will be awarded for the longest drive, straightest drive and closest to the pin.
