The Buffalo State Foundation will present the 19th annual Golf and Tennis Scholarship Classic on Tuesday, September 6, at the Brookfield Country Club in Clarence, NY.
Sponsored by Pepsi, the event includes a lunch buffet, cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, and an awards dinner. Gerald L. Cornish, ’90, is the chair of this year’s event.
Proceeds support Buffalo State’s Muriel A. Howard Honors Program, which is funded entirely by private donations. The program provides deserving students with scholarships, an honors lounge, special on-campus housing, and opportunities for internships, seminars, and research.
“The scholarships help enable students to attend college who otherwise could not afford to and provide support for service-learning, research with faculty mentors, and special seminars,” said Dr. Susanne P. Bair, vice president for institutional advancement.
At last year’s event, 131 golfers and 9 tennis players helped raise more than $67,000.
