PITTSBORO - Golfers, grab your clubs for a day of fun and fellowship for a good cause as the Central Carolina Community College Foundation hosts its Third Annual Chatham County Golf Classic on Wednesday, May 11, at Chapel Ridge.
Since 1989, the Foundation has hosted an annual Golf Classic in Lee County, raising funds for scholarships and other financial assistance for the college's students.
For the third year, the Foundation hosts two additional Golf Classics: in Harnett County in March, and in Chatham County on Wednesday, May 11. Proceeds from each tournament will benefit CCCC students.
"The Chatham County Golf Tournament is very important to the CCCC Foundation as it is our biggest fundraising event that we do in Chatham County," said Chris Ehrenfeld, CCCC Foundation Vice President. "Last year's tournament was a tremendous success and we intend to build off of that success and make this year's tournament even better. Sponsoring the Chatham County Golf Tournament is a great way for Chatham County businesses to show their support for CCCC."
Lunch will be served at 1 p.m., with the shotgun start is 9 a.m.
The format for the Chatham County Golf Classic is four-person Captain's Choice Flighted. Prizes will be awarded to top teams in each flight, as well as the winners of the longest drive, closest-to-pin, and putting contest.
Sponsorships are available at various levels: $200 Silver Sponsor includes sponsorship recognition; $600 Gold Sponsor includes one foursome and sponsorship recognition; and $1,000 Platinum Sponsor includes two foursomes and sponsorship recognition.
"We are so grateful for the support we have received in Chatham County," said Emily Hare, Executive Director of the CCCC Foundation. "Chatham County has given so much to us and we will use all funds raised in the tournament to go directly back to our students, faculty, and staff. We look forward to the event and hope everyone will come out and join us!"
