NEC HOLDS ANNUAL GOLF CLASSIC
New England College held its 22nd annual golf classic at the Stonebridge Country Club in Goffstown, New Hampshire on Friday, June 5. With a record 120 golfers participating in the event, proceeds far exceeded the College’s symbolic goal of $35,000, or the equivalent of a year of tuition at the College. According to Michelline Dufort, Vice President for Advancement at New England College, “We couldn’t be more pleased with the response from our alumni, sponsors, faculty and staff, vendors, and friends of the College. Their generous participation allowed us to raise just over $42,000 in gross revenue and in-kind donations. This is truly a significant accomplishment for the College.”
Dufort explained that proceeds from the golf classic go directly to student scholarships. “Over 90% of the College’s students receive some type of institutional support,” she noted. “Not only is this an excellent opportunity for alumni and friends to connect with the College, but our students are the real winners.”
Sponsors for the golf classic included Chartwells Dining Services of Charlotte, North Carolina, Embanet Knowledge Group of Toronto, Canada, and B.K. Systems of Goffstown, New Hampshire.
