HOLYOKE, Mass. (WWLP) – The Holyoke Community College Foundation hosted its 35th annual golf benefit Monday at Springfield Country Club in West Springfield.

Nearly 100 golfers teed off to raise money for scholarships at Holyoke Community College. The golf outing began with an 11:00 a.m. buffet lunch followed by a 12:30 p.m. tee off. Participants paid a $185 individual fee that included lunch, dinner and refreshments on the course.

Money raised at the tournament will support student scholarships managed by the HCC Foundation, the nonprofit fundraising arm of Holyoke Community College. Over the past 34 years, the annual HCC Foundation Golf Classic has raised $500,000 for HCC scholarships, student support programs, and classroom technology. Today’s event was expected to raise around $30,000.  

“We are excited to bring our community together again on the golf course to support HCC students,” said Amanda Sbriscia, vice president of Institutional Advancement and executive director of the HCC Foundation. “This is always such a wonderful day and we are so grateful for the support of our alumni, faculty, staff, board members, and local businesses for investing in our mission.”
