Fernwood Golf Course Hosts Northampton Community College Scholarship Tournament

Friday, July 21, 2017

BUSHKILL, PA (October 6, 2017) - Golfers will tee off for a good cause on Friday, October 6, 2017 at the Fernwood Golf Course to benefit the Northampton Community College Foundation. The registration fee, which includes dinner, is $125 per golfer or $400 for a foursome. Registration begins at 11:00 am, with lunch available, followed by a shotgun start at noon and an awards dinner, entertainment and raffle prizes at the Wintergreens Patio Grill. Non-golfers are welcome to attend the awards dinner at $35 per person. Tournament includes great hole-in-one prizes. Sponsorship opportunities are still available.

Northampton Community College has provided accessible and affordable education for 50 years. NCC serves more than 35,000 students a year in credit and non-credit programs and grants degrees, certificates and diplomas in over 100 fields. One in six graduates of Monroe County’s public school will start their college education at NCC’s Monroe Campus. The Foundation seeks to foster relationships in the community to raise, invest and manage private resources for the benefit of NCC and their students. At NCC, the culture reflects their belief that higher education should be within the reach of all who can benefit from it.

Holly Freeman, spokesperson for CRE Bushkill Group, LLC., said, “Every year, the Fernwood Golf Course hosts a charity golf event and selects a different organization to benefit. Past years have included Big Brothers Big Sisters, Salvation Army and Special Olympics, among others, and have raised approximately $20,000 to $30,000 per event.”

Freeman continues, “This year’s tournament is also for a worthwhile cause. Participation and sponsorships will help support scholarships for Northampton and Monroe county residents, and this is fundamental for helping students attain the benefits from higher education. Why not be a part of this cause while enjoying a game of golf at the same time?”

To register for the tournament or to be a sponsor, call Holly Freeman at 570-269-2060 or email hfreeman@bushkillgroup.com. Submitted forms, payment and item donations are due by September 6, 2017.
