The 8th Annual San Mateo County Community Colleges Foundation’s Golf Tournament, which took place August 5, 2019 was a tremendous success, grossing more than $240,000 for the SMCCCD’s Promise Scholars Program – a new fundraising record!
The Tournament, once again held at the Stanford Golf Course, attracted over 200 supporters, including golfers, sponsors, dinner attendees, and volunteers, both from the District and the community. Local business leaders, members of the District’s Board of Trustees and the SMCCC Foundation’s Board of Directors participated in the day’s festivities. In addition to an exciting day on the links at the exclusive course, the event featured a raffle, putting contest, golf pro tips, and themed holes with fun games. There was also a laid-back dinner and awards ceremony with a taco bar and music from the Blue Flamingo Quartet.
A perennial highlight of the event is the themed hole sponsored by Skyline College, Cañada College, and College of San Mateo (pictured) – golfers always appreciate and enjoy meeting college representatives and students on the course!
Each year, this charity tournament raises funds to support students at Skyline College and the rest of the SMCCC District. And, each year, it is through the generosity of our sponsors that the Foundation is able to steadily increase the amount of funds raised for scholarships. A special thank you to our lead sponsors:
