19th Tri-County Charity Golf Outing
Date: Monday, June 6, 2011
Tri-County Scholarship Fund’s 19th Annual Golf Invitational Tournament took place on Monday, June 6, 2011 at the Morris County Golf Club.
Tri-County Scholarship Fund awards scholarships to economically disadvantaged students, without regard to race or religion, to attend private and parochial schools in grades K-12 in Passaic, Morris and Sussex counties.
The tournament’s corporate sponsors include PricewaterhouseCoopers, LLP, and Bank of America. Golf Tournament Co-Chairs are Tri-County trustees Mark Bode, Partner, PricewaterhouseCoopers, LLP and Rick DeBel, Senior Vice President, Bank of America.
In the past two years Tri-County has provided $1.7MM in scholarships to over 1,000 students in grades K-12. 77% of Tri-county students come from single parent families whose average income is less than $25,000.00.
Gregory Floyd, President of Tri-County Scholarship Fund, remarked: “Through Tri-County we have the opportunity to reach out to a group of poor children who have enormous promise. The children we reach through Tri-County graduate high school at the rate of 99%. 96% of that group go straight to college, often the first in their families to do so. The Tri-County Golf Invitational helps us ensure that no student in our area has to leave a safe, high-performing school because of financial constraints. This event provides a great way to play golf at one of the country’s oldest and most historic courses, enjoy friends and family and entertain clients while contributing to one of the most important causes we can: the education of our children.”
