COC Foundation Plans Annual Golf Tournament
The College of the Canyons Foundation is accepting reservations for its 17th Annual Golf Tournament set for Monday, Sept. 10 at Valencia Country Club. This year the foundation is proud to welcome Calex Engineering Co. as its new Title Sponsor for the 2007 Golf Tournament.
Proceeds from the tournament support scholarships and academic programs, and they help students at College of the Canyons (COC) as they pursue their educational goals. COC is the fastest-growing community college in the nation and has the highest percentage of students transferring to four-year universities from all community colleges in Los Angeles County. In the last 10 years the number of students has grown from more than 7,000 to more than 19,000.
Last year's tournament was a great success, with more than 80 players representing the commitment of corporate leaders such as HR Textron, KBZ, Providence Holy Cross Medical Center, Community Bank, Pardee Homes, Advantage Disposal, H&S Electric and many others.
Sponsors will have the opportunity to help a student with their tuition for a semester or a year through the fund-a-need appeal to take place at the reception immediately following the tournament. The cost of books and supplies that comes with high-quality education is nearly twice as much as tuition. This can be very cost prohibitive and one of the greatest barriers facing students. In addition, sponsored teams will have the opportunity to play golf with a past or present member of College of the Canyons' championship golf team
