|
News

Registration is currently underway for the region’s most anticipated golf event! Vance-Granville Community College’s 39th Annual VGCC Foundation Golf Tournament will take place May 8 and 9 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 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.

“We look forward to fellowshipping with our golf friends, and we thank everyone involved for their support of the VGCC mission,” said the college’s president, Dr. Rachel Desmarais.

Tournament Sponsors

Gupton Services, Inc. of Henderson will once again serve as the event’s presenting sponsor. Gupton Services is a Henderson-based HVAC, roofing, and building automation company that traces its origins back to 1921, when C.P. Tanner established a sheet metal working plant in the town. The business was first known as Tanner Roofing before changing its name to Owen Gupton Roofing. Greg Etheridge, a Henderson native, became its owner and president in 2019.

Additional sponsorship opportunities are available to other businesses looking to promote their brand and support a worthy cause. New opportunities for this year’s event include air cannon contest hole sponsor, golf towel sponsor, and more.

Anyone interested in participating as a sponsor or as a golfing team is asked to sign up by April 14 on the event’s webpage. Space is limited, and early registration is recommended. For more information, visit www.vgcc.edu/golf.

Those wishing to donate to the event may visit the event webpage or simply email foundation@vgcc.edu.
