35th Annual RCC Foundation Golf Outing Benefit October 22

18 holes of golf at Spook Rock, lunch, cocktail reception, dinner, raffle prizes and more

 

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
DATE: September 28, 2018

RAMAPO, N.Y. – The 35th annual RCC Foundation Golf Outing will be at Spook Rock Golf Course in Suffern on Monday, October 22. Funds raised at the outing go toward scholarships for Rockland Community College students.

Participants will enjoy 18 holes of golf at Spook Rock, annually ranked among the best public courses in the region, along with lunch, cocktail reception, dinner, complimentary beverage cart and raffle prizes. Lunch and registration run from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., with the shotgun start set for 1 p.m. The presenting sponsor is M&T Bank, and event co-chairs are local businessmen Brian Cameron and Eric Black.

“Golfers' participation provides invaluable scholarship opportunities for our students,” said Elizabeth Kendall, Interim Executive Director of the RCC Foundation. She noted that in 2016-2017, students receiving at least one scholarship from the RCC Foundation were retained at a significantly higher rate from semester to semester and year to year when compared to students not receiving scholarships. Scholarship awardees also had a higher grade point average and credit completion rate. “The impact of participants' support is real, and their contributions are making a difference in the lives of our students.”

Since 1982, the RCC Foundation has awarded more than $3 million in scholarships to students who excel academically and/or demonstrate financial need. Last year the Foundation awarded $350,000 in scholarships and other student support.

Outing cost is $199 per golfer, and $900 for a foursome plus tee sponsorship. Other sponsorships are also available. For more information, see RCC Foundation Golf Outing or contact Elizabeth Kendall at 845-574-4269 or ekendall@sunyrockland.edu.
