The Cheyney University “C” Club will host its annual Wade Wilson Golf Tournament in an effort to raise $100,000 in scholarship dollars for the school’s athletic department.
The event is set for Monday, August 26 at Penn Oaks Golf Club on West Chester, PA. Registration starts at 7 a.m. with a shotgun start at 8 a.m.
Individual golfers can join The “C” Club on the greens for $160, and foursomes can enjoy a discounted rate of $600. Non-golfers are welcome to participate in a tour of the nearby QVC facility and wine tasting activities for $75, or get a feel for the game by purchasing a ticket to the golf clinic for $125.
The Wade Wilson Golf Tournament is The “C” Club’s most extravagant fundraiser and has helped raise more than $150,000 in scholarship funds over the past three years.
“This is our most important fundraiser of the year,” proclaims Larry Skinner, Class of 1976, “C” Club Vice President, and Chairman of the Wade Wilson Golf Tournament. “CU’s athletic budget has been cut substantially this year. We have a huge commitment to Cheyney athletes and plan to donate 100 percent of the money we raise-after expenses-to help with recruitment and scholarships that will keep kids in school this fall.”
Senator Vincent J. Hughes is serving as the tournament’s honorary chair,
“The state has cut nearly $1 billion from public schools in the past two years,” he says, “and millions more from higher education. That’s why private scholarships like The “C” Club’s are critical to fill the gap. I’m proud to support the Wade Wilson Golf Tournament. It’s truly an honor to help raise funds for such an important institution that provides critical support for Cheyney University’s athletic programs.”
Companies interested in sponsorship opportunities can take advantage of The “C” Club’s various packages which range from the $100 Golf Cart package to the fearsome $10,000 Wolf package that offers eight golfer registrations, a plaque, two season passes to all Cheyney Home Athletic events, and ample advertising visibility.
Local and national companies have already pledged donations to The “C” Club’s $100,000 goal. This year’s sponsors include Lexus of Cherry Hill, Pennoni Associates, Inc., Allstate Insurance, and Sazerac.
