Thanks you to our 2017 Golf Scramble Sponsors!
Our recent 2017 golf scramble scholarship fundraiser was a huge success! The number of attendees almost doubled from last year, and there was a more diverse contingency of environmental professionals. We’d like to recognize all our sponsors and volunteers for helping make this happen. Thanks to a combination of sponsorship and attendance, we are able to provide another scholarship next year to a qualified student in the environmental field of study. Everyone had a great time at the Heritage Golf Links and we look forward to an even larger crowd at next year’s event!
