18th Annual KVCC Foundation Golf Tournament to be held June 17

 

Fairfield, ME – Kennebec Valley Community College (KVCC) will host its 18th annual fund-raising golf tournament on Monday, June 17 to raise money for the educational needs of students at the College.

 

The event will be held at the Waterville Country Club, located in Oakland, Maine. It will include a luncheon and live auction at noon, an 18-hole scramble, and an awards ceremony. Registration begins at 11 a.m., and tee-off is at 1 p.m.

 

Organized by the KVCC Foundation Board of Trustees, the golf tournament is part of the annual campaign to raise funds to promote and support all educational programs; to provide state-of-the-art equipment and facilities; and to ensure access through scholarship funds to needy students.

 

“The Foundation Golf Tournament has become a fun and important annual event to support KVCC students,” Foundation Executive Director, Michelle Webb, said. “Thanks to the generosity of the many people who make it successful, we are able to make a significant difference in the ability of students to access high-quality higher education.”

 

The rain date for the event is Tuesday, June 18.

 

On Target Utility Services and Burns & McDonnell will be the “Presenting Co-Sponsors” for the event, continuing their long tradition of partnering with KVCC on projects andprograms that benefit the community and students.

 

Last year’s tournament raised more than $22,000 to ensure educational opportunities for students attending KVCC.

 

Recognized as one of the best two-year colleges in America by the Aspen Institute in 2011 and 2012, Kennebec Valley Community College is one of the most highly regarded institutions of its kind.

 

The College enrolled approximately 2,500 full and part-time students in the fall of 2012, and offers more than 30 programs of study. Trustees, volunteers, and College staff work hard each year to raise funds from businesses and individuals who recognize the importance of KVCC graduates to the community and the local economy.

 

Supporting KVCC students is a great investment in the Maine economy. Most KVCC students are Maine residents, and the vast majority find employment or continue their education here in the state after graduating.

 

Kennebec Valley Community College is one of seven community colleges in Maine. KVCC prepares full-time and part-time students to enter the job market, to transfer to four-year colleges and universities, and to achieve their professional and personal goals. Programs and services support the economic growth of the community in response to changing needs.
