Scholarship Golf Benefit

Scholarship Golf Benefit

 

Jack Nicklaus was the first to help.  Then, great golfers like Greg Norman, Lee Trevino, Phil Mickelson and Chi Chi Rodriguez followed him to Lorain County.

Today, the Lorain County Community College, Jack Nicklaus, Scholarship Golf Benefit is enjoying its 18th year of raising money to provide support for students of LCCC and the University Partnership.

Since 1990, money raised from the Scholarship Golf Benefit has gone into an endowment fund at the LCCC Foundation.  “That fund,” said Tracy Green, Director of Advancement for the LCCC Foundation, “is reaching a pinnacle point in its development.  The fund is nearing a million dollars in total assets.”  Each year, this fund produces nearly $40,000 to help support students at both LCCC and the University Partnership.  To date, the fund has supported 620 students.

“We are extremely grateful,” said Green, “to the number of supporters who, not only came out this year, but all through the years.  We look forward to keeping this a premier golf event for a very important purpose.”

First Place Bank was the presenting sponsor of the 2008 event.  125 golfers enjoyed a beautiful day of play at the historical Elyria Country Club.  Bobby Clampett, PGA Tour pro and commentator, hosted the day.  The LCCC golf team, featuring 2007 NCJAA National Finalist, Eric Polansky played and LCCC scholarship students and ambassadors helped run the day.  “We have the students involved so the golfers can really understand,” said Green, “the importance that their participation in the event is having on the real lives of real students at LCCC.”

In the 18-year span of the Nicklaus Scholarship Golf Benefit, close to $400,000 in support has been awarded.
