Alumni tournament raises money
The Penn State Wilkes-Barre Alumni Constituent Society recently held its 13th Annual Masters Golf Tournament at Blue Ridge Trail Golf Club in Mountain Top. With over 110 golfers and a variety of businesses participating in the yearly program, the Society raised over $5,000 in support of student scholarships for the Wilkes-Barre campus. Proceeds from the event go to scholarship opportunities, as well as other initiatives for Penn State Wilkes-Barre students.
Local automobile dealer Ken Pollock Chevrolet sponsored one of the many contests offered throughout the day by supplying the grand prize; a 2009 Chevy Impala to a golfer lucky enough to get a hole-in-one during the tournament.
With outstanding course and weather conditions, the Johnson Control, Inc. foursome of Mike Moran, Bob Razvillas, Ray Kovaleski and Jason Moore combined to shoot a low round of 59 to win a share of the 18-hole Masters event. The other group, led by Ray Ostroski and Brian Bobeck, captured part of the title with the same score. Each winning golfer received a Penn State Wilkes-Barre navy blazer complete with 24k gold-plated Penn State buttons.
Constantly recognizing the need for on-going scholarship support for Penn State Wilkes-Barre, the Alumni Constituent Society is just one of the many generous donors who continue to support the Wilkes-Barre campus and northeastern Pennsylvania.
