Patrick Henry Community College (PHCC) will host its annual fall golf tournament and fundraiser on Monday, Oct. 7. The funds raised during the golf tournament will support student-athletes at PHCC by providing the equipment and up-to-date facilities required for a safe and successful athletic program.
The 18-hole captains choice tournament will be held at the Chatmoss Country Club and will include a luncheon, longest drive and hole-in-one contests, and an awards ceremony. Registration begins at 11 a.m. Tee-off is at 1 p.m.
The Lester Building Supply, a full-service building materials supplier serving the needs of professional builders, contractors, remodelers and homeowners in the Martinsville and surrounding areas, will be the title sponsor. Hole sponsorship opportunities are still available.
“We are excited and thankful to have Lester Building Supply and all of our sponsors this year offering their support to the many student-athletes of PHCC Athletics,” says Brian Henderson, PHCC Athletic Director.
According to officials, the fall golf tournament is a major fundraiser for the department. This year, PHCC’s athletic department has over 200 student-athletes competing in 13 different sports. Every year PHCC’s student-athletes earn national recognitions – being named to all-American teams or earning spots in national championships. Students who are ready to transfer are regularly offered scholarships by recruiters to sign to four-year universities.
“We aim to give student-athletes opportunities to use their athletic skills to reach their academic goals,” says Henderson. “With the support from those in the community, like Lester Building Supply, that believe in our mission, PHCC athletics is able to provide opportunities our students may not get otherwise. We are so grateful to all our sponsors for their continued support of our Patriots.”
