UA - Pulaski Tech golf tournament to raise funds for scholarships
The University of Arkansas - Pulaski Technical College Foundation invites golfers to “Swing for Scholarships” at its 12th annual golf tournament on Friday, Sept. 28, at the Country Club of Arkansas in Maumelle. The first golf tournament was held in 2007 and honored the late P.G. Bradford, a beloved college employee. Proceeds from this year’s tournament will benefit students by providing scholarships and increasing the existing Bradford Scholarship Endowment Fund at the two-year college.
The tournament will be a four-person scramble with shotgun starts at 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. Entry fees are $500 for a team of four or $125 per person. Mulligans may be purchased before the tournament for $10 each.
First, second, and third-place teams in morning and afternoon flights will receive prizes. Golfers will also be eligible to win a grand prize if they hit a hole-in-one. Other contests include Inside the Circle, Longest Drive, and Closest to the Pin. The golf tournament’s popular helicopter ball drop will return to the tournament again this year. Balls are dropped from a helicopter as it hovers over the golf course and the person whose ball lands closest to the pin will win $1,000. Tickets for the ball drop are $10 each.
“This tournament is a fun way to support the mission of the college," said Shannon Boshears, executive director of the UA - Pulaski Tech Foundation. “This tournament is so very important in funding scholarships for students who otherwise might never be able to attend college. Education changes lives and families.”Register for the tournament online at www.uaptc.edu/golf or contact Adora Curry, Advancement Marketing Manager, at (501) 812-2771 for more information.
