VGCC Celebrates 40th Annual Golf Tournament this May


There’s still time to register for the region’s most anticipated golf event! Vance-Granville Community College’s 40th Annual VGCC Foundation Golf Tournament will take place May 6 and 7 at Henderson Country Club. The event invites golfers and non-golfers alike to unite in support of the college and its impact on the four-county service area.

The VGCC Foundation (VGCCF) awards hundreds of scholarship endowments to full-time students—more than any program of its kind in North Carolina. As one of the college’s primary annual fundraisers for The Foundation, this tournament provides crucial resources to fund student scholarships and support the greater mission of the college, including the food pantry used by students and employees alike. Enhancing and expanding need-based aid promotes equitable outcomes for all learners, setting them up for a brighter future.

“Community colleges do more than just impact students on campus; they are key to a community’s economic viability,” noted VGCCF Executive Director Tanya Weary. “We would like to accomplish greater growth this year and offer even more individuals an opportunity to pursue their educational dreams—but we can only achieve this if we acquire more support from the community.”

Hitting the course as a golfer is not the only way to support The Foundation’s mission. A range of sponsorship opportunities are still available to businesses looking to promote their brand and back a worthy cause.

Anyone interested in participating as a sponsor or as a golfing team is asked to sign up on the tournament webpage by Wednesday, May 1.
