Alumni Gather at Annual Golf Classic

Funds Raised Went to the Scholarship Fund

This spring the Alumni Department held their Annual Scholarship Golf Classic at Cavaliers Country Club. 136 golfers participated to raise funds, which go directly to the Wilmington University scholarship fund.

Each golfer was able to enjoy a lunch, provided by Chick-fil-A, kielbasa at the 9th hole turnaround and refreshments throughout the day.  Participants were also presented with the opportunity to beat the Cavalier Country Club’s Golf Pro.

Later that evening, 180 guests attended the 19th Hole Celebration, which included dinner, awards, a silent auction and entertainment from the band Thoughts in Common, featuring Anita King. Scholarship recipients Michelle Yang and Michael Sammons were in attendance that evening and thanked everyone for their support of the scholarship fund.

“I would like to thank all of those who generously donated to the Wilmington University Scholarship Fund,” said Michelle. “You helped me by allowing me to attend college and showing me that it is no joke – academically or financially. I appreciate all the time and effort that everyone has made in making my college education a reality.”

 “Without the scholarship donors, none of these scholarships would even be possible,” said Michael. “The support that has been given from all the donors has helped me achieve my goal in graduating, and for that I am truly grateful. Thank you.”
