CFCC Golf Tournament

Generous Community Sponsors Provide Scholarship Opportunities

Wilmington, NC – A chilly and misty Halloween morning did not deter more than 100 golfers from teeing off at the Cape Fear Country Club for a good cause. Thirty teams sponsored by local businesses and individuals participated in the first-ever Cape Fear Community College (CFCC) Foundation Golf Tournament to benefit student scholarships.

Team sponsorships ranged from $1,000 to $5,000, with P&MW Holding Company as the title sponsor, BB&T and PPD as gold sponsors and over twenty-four additional silver sponsors. Thirty-six local businesses also provided hole sponsorships, and to add an element of fun Marine Max, Parkway Volvo and Stevenson Honda provided a boat and two automobiles as hole-in-one incentives. Food and beverage sponsors included Coastal Beverage, Coca-Cola, Courtyard by Marriott/Hilton Garden Inn, Lawler Catering, Pita Delite and Wellington Benefits.

“Because of the outpouring of community support, this event was not only worthwhile, but a lot of fun,” said Bill Anlyan, chair of the CFCC Foundation. ”Our hope is that this will become an annual event and we can continue to provide more scholarship opportunities for students at CFCC. This is such a good investment because it will directly benefit so many residents of New Hanover and Pender counties who are working to complete their education.”
