Tee Up for Scholarships Golf Outing, May 20Posted May. 6, 2013
Kent State University's Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion is hosting the first Tee Up for Scholarships, a special Kent State fundraising golf event on Monday, May 20, at Windmill Lakes in Ravenna beginning at 9 a.m.
“We have many people coming forward with donations, sponsorships and players to participate,” says Alfreda Brown, vice president for the Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. “This will be a fun and exciting event for an important cause.”
The Tee Up for Scholarships golf tournament was created to raise scholarship funds for underrepresented and underserved students at Kent State.
“At an event like this, people are going to get together to raise money for something great, while also having fun,” says Gina Campana, special assistant in the Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. “We want to bring awareness to the fact that a lot of juniors and seniors run out of the funds and support they need.”
Interested participants for the golf outing are encouraged to form teams consisting of four players. The cost is $475 per team or $125 for an individual player. Each registered person will play an 18-hole round of golf and receive a breakfast and lunch buffet, a T-shirt and opportunities to win awards.
Campana says donations have been received from businesses around the Kent, Akron and Ravenna areas. In addition, the event is sponsored by the Diversity Advisory Board in the Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, and the board has assisted in obtaining sponsors from across the country.
