College Golf Tournament to Benefit Scholarships
June 2 , 2011
The average cost of books and supplies for college students attending Cerro Coso Community College (CCCC) full time exceeds $600 per semester. Now, more than ever paying for textbooks is a financial struggle for students. The Cerro Coso Textbook Scholarship Program helps students to continue their education by offering qualified students the opportunity to receive funds for their books. The CCCC Golf Tournament has raised more than $8,000 over the past two years for needed textbook scholarships.
The Third Annual Cerro Coso Golf Tournament is slated for Saturday, June 18, 2011 at the Tierra del Sol Golf Course in California City. Cerro Coso is looking to expand educational services in California City. To celebrate this endeavor it was decided to host this year's tournament at the golf course in California City.
The College and the Cerro Coso Community College Foundation have teamed up to host the event with proceeds going for student book scholarships. Sign-in begins at 7 a.m. and shotgun scramble time is 8:30 a.m. The registration fee of $80 per player and includes green fees, shirt, hat, continental breakfast and a Tri-Tip lunch.
Prizes will be awarded to the teams with the highest score, lowest score, and longest drive. There will also be Putting Contest prizes and Par 3 prizes. The Putting Contest will begin at 7:15 a.m. on tournament day. "True to our goals, six students were awarded scholarships this year to help defray the cost of books. Golfers and non-golfers should be proud of their contribution in time, talents, and money on behalf of these Cerro Coso students," stated Dave Cornell, co-chair of the Cerro Coso Golf Tournament.
Golf sponsorships are also available and offer opportunities for advertising and marketing as well as showing support for the goals of the College and Foundation. Cerro Coso invites all interested individuals to join in the fun, playing a game they love, while raising money for a worthy cause.
