Hole-In One for the Financial Aid Scholarship Fund
The Financial Aid Scholarship Annual Golf fundraiser was a huge hit! The G.B. Williamson 33rd Annual Golf Tournament had a great turn out with 118 golfers, 55 hole sponsors, and a genuine hole-in one! USAFA Eisenhower Private Golf Course in Colorado Springs hosted the Nazarene Bible College event on a remarkably beautiful summer day. Players traveled from all over including North Denver, Grand Junction, Northeast Colorado, and even Kansas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico. Spirits were high as they all gathered to play some golf, catch some rays, and raise money for our college's financial aid student scholarships.
NBC supporters hit numerous golf balls that were inevitably searched for, lost, and found as the holes were played. On the way they searched for ultimate victory as they competed to take home trophies for successfully completing various tasks. One participant even managed to shoot a hole-in-one which resulted in oohs and awes from the crowd. The event concluded with a traditional round of clubhouse drinks and as iced tea isn’t expensive, it was the cheapest round in the history of the game. Our financial aid office stated that an average of $11,000 to $15,000 is raised each year towards this college scholarship. NBC is happy to provide support by offering a variety of loans, scholarships and grants for eligible college students that have been provided by alumni, faculty, and staff throughout the years. If you would like to be a hole sponsor during next year's event, contact Shari Henson in Student Development at 719-884-5065 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
