Fayetteville Technical Community College is inviting community members to “swing” by the annual FTCC Foundation Golf Tournament on Sept. 28, with proceeds going toward scholarship opportunities and emergency assistance for its students.
“It’s just an opportunity for folks to come out and interact with our students, our faculty and our staff and raise money for a good cause,” said Sandy Ammons, executive director of the FTCC Foundation.
The tournament will begin at 9 a.m. at Gates Four Golf & Country Club and feature meals from Chick-Fil-A, Jersey Mike’s and a breakfast sponsored by Berkshire Hathaway, Ammons said.
“It will be a beautiful day of golf. We will have lots of food and refreshments throughout the day,” Ammons said.
The FTCC Foundation Golf Tournament has been around for over 25 years, Ammons said, and has raised more than $1 million for students over this time.
Ammons said the golf tournament remains a great way for community members to meet Fayetteville Tech students, socialize and enjoy the sport.
Many community members throughout Cumberland County have ties to FTCC, Ammons said, and the tournament provides an opportunity for folks to give back to support students who continue to prepare to enter into the workforce.
“Really just about everybody in Cumberland County is either an alum of FTCC or works with or knows an alum of FTCC,” Ammons said. “We graduate so many students in so many different fields and I think people really appreciate the workforce development that we do.”
Ammons said she hopes at the conclusion of the tournament that those participating have had a pleasant time mingling with members of the FTCC community and can enjoy having supported those seeking an education in their county.
“I hope that they take away that they have done a good thing to support students who are seeking an education and just realize how much they enjoyed interacting with our staff,” Ammons said.
Cape Fear Valley Health and Mercedes-Benz of Fayetteville remain sponsors of the event. Those seeking more information on the event may call 910-678-8441 or email Foundation@faytechcc.edu.
