Golf Tournament to Raise Funds for Scholarship Program
Join us at the award-winning Lonnie Poole Golf Club on April 17, 2014 to raise funds for scholarships for college students of HBA members majoring in a construction-related field.
The North Carolina Home Builders Educational & Charitable Foundation (NCHBECF) will present the annual “Builder Classic” Golf Tournament, with all proceedings going to scholarships for family members of NCHBA members. In 2013, the foundation awarded $7,500 to three college students.
In these challenging economic times, these scholarships are more valuable to our members than ever. NCHBA counts on your support of the NCHBECF Golf Tournament to continue to provide this member benefit.
To add another element of fun to the tournament, we will also hold the annual President’s Cup Challenge. This challenge is a “tournament within a tournament” for teams with current and past presidents of any level of the federation. Teams with local, state or national presidents will compete for bragging rights and the coveted trophy to be awarded at the 2nd Quarter Board Meeting.
In addition to playing in the tournament, sponsorships are available to help raise funds for the scholarship program.
