College’s Scholarship Golf & Tennis Tournament October 16

Essex County College and the Essex County College Foundation will co-sponsor its 23rd annual Golf & Tennis Scholarship Tournament on Monday, October 16, 2023, at the Maplewood Country Club in Maplewood. The tournament, a key source of money for scholarships, features round-robin play in both golf and tennis.

“The money raised at the tournament will help our most deserving students earn a valuable college education and take the next step forward to achieving their dreams. That has been our mission at Essex County College for 55 years,” stated ECC President Dr. Augustine A. Boakye.

The tournament presents an excellent opportunity for companies to use the event as a vehicle for community building while supporting a good cause. It’s also fun for individuals who enjoy playing a round of golf or a lively tennis match.  

The day’s activities begin with a brunch at 10:30 a.m. and extend through the day, culminating with a reception and awards dinner at the club. A highlight of the evening is the heartfelt testimonies of former Essex students who were able to attend college in part because they were scholarship beneficiaries.

There is still time for players and sponsors to sign up for the popular event. Individuals can sign up to golf for $275 per person, or for tennis at $200 per person.  There are also a number of prize incentives, such as longest drive, offered at the tournament. Donations of all sizes will also assist students. Checks should be made payable to the Essex County College Scholarship Fund.
