Thanks to our golfers, sponsors, committee members and many volunteers the 27th Annual CFMA Golf Scholarship Scramble made a successful return after our COVID hiccup in 2020.
As over 100 participants will recall, Monday, July 26th was a HOT and MUGGY day! The rains over the weekend kept us holding our breath till 7:30AM day of the event whether the course was going to be open or closed. Thank you Brandywine for giving us the green light! Although there were a few large puddles along the cart paths, as far as we know, no life preservers were needed to be deployed.
The Brandywine CC folks did a nice job keeping us organized and on track – not to mention well fed and hydrated! The registration this year was in the front parking lot which seemed to flow better and the AC at dinner gave us all a second wind. The food line moved right along and the steaks and chicken seemed to be a big hit.
Importantly, the outing raised over $20,450 for tuition assistance for College of Business Administrative students at UT and BGSU, our two major universities in the area. Thanks to you we are now at an estimated $550,000 level for scholarship monies raised since the mid-90s. That is a lot of sponsors, golfers and raffle ticket buyers!
Finally, a BIG thanks to the organizing committee members: Bob Bobek, GJM, Jennifer Marquardt, US Utilities Contractors, Tom Nemeth, Hylant, Blayne Robbins. Brown & Brown, Chris Kasper, Rudolph/Libbe Cos., Terence Pitre, BGSU and last but not least Diana Franz, UT. It was a great team effort and virtual planning meetings made the process more efficient for all – up to the last week when things all came together- the fun part!
We hope some of our CFMA members reading this will consider joining the Golf Committee in 2022- or another CFMA committee. It is one of the best ways to get to know your fellow members and enrich your CFMA experience. We hope to see everyone back next year!
