The BCCC Foundation thanks Nutrien, Joe Paul Jr. Funeral & Cremation, Lee Chevrolet and others for their generous sponsorship of the event.
A total of 23 teams took part in the tournament. It consisted of a four-person Superball format, with teams being pre-flown based on each golfer’s handicap.
The BCCC Foundation raises funds through events such as the golf tournament to provide textbook scholarships to qualifying students. This complements the Beaufort Promise Scholarship and other private scholarships to make education accessible to students. The tournament is one of the largest annual fundraising events for the BCCC Foundation.
The Beaufort Promise Scholarship, originally scheduled to end in May 2023, has been extended thanks to direct funding from the Beaufort County Commission for qualifying students. BCCC Foundation funding covers all other qualifying service area students residing outside of Beaufort County, such as B. Those residing in Hyde, Tyrrell, and Washington Counties.
Last year, the BCCC Foundation awarded $190,000 in scholarships to students. These costs are expected to increase as more students use the Beaufort Promise Scholarship to retrain for new careers or build a future for themselves or their families.
