‘Swing for Scholarships’ at 26th Annual COC Foundation Golf Tourney

The College of the Canyons Foundation’s 26th Annual Golf Tournament is right around the corner, with local golfers invited to ‘Swing for Scholarships’ by enjoying a day out of the office and on the golf course!

The COC Foundation golf tournament will take place Monday, August 15, at Valencia Country Club. 

Proceeds from this year’s event will help support COC student scholarships and other support programs, which impact a broad range of individuals. 

“Rising college costs are a major barrier for students today,” said Tom Bilbruck, director of Financial Aid at the college. “Scholarships help support students who might not otherwise be able to afford to attend college. Students who receive scholarships are better equipped to focus on their education, and are able to worry less about how they will pay for it.

Single player tournament sponsorship opportunities begin at $350 and include a pre-tournament breakfast, driving range privileges, player’s bag, cart, greens fee, lunch, specialty on-course cuisine and beverages, and a cocktail awards reception. 

Golfers can also select the $700 ‘Caddy Sponsor’ package, which includes two player spots (with all single player benefits) and a sponsor tee sign, or the $1,750 ‘Birdie Sponsor’ package, which includes four player spots (with all single player benefits) and a company tee sign.

All sponsored teams also have the option of filling their fourth player spot with a current or former student-athlete from the College of the Canyons men’s and women’s golf programs.

Those that want to opt out of the golfing can give support through non-player opportunities, and receive recognition as a sponsor by selecting the Beverage or Breakfast Sponsor, each for $1,500. 

This year’s tournament is being chaired by Shawn Fonder, vice president of Lundgren Construction Management and member of the COC Foundation board of directors.
