HACC Foundation's tournament set Sept. 14 at Hershey Links
June 29, 2009
Enjoy a day of golf and help fund scholarships for financially needy students at HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College.
The Frank J. Dixon Tournament for Scholarships at HACC will be held Monday, Sept. 14, at The Hershey Links, 101 Hanshue Road, Hummelstown. The HACC Foundation Tournament was renamed to honor Dr. Dixon, benefactor and long-time HACC Foundation board member who chaired the tournament for many years and was instrumental in its success.
“With the continued downturn in the economy, more and more HACC students are reaching out for help to further their educational goals. Each week, I speak with more and more students who are struggling to pay for their education while facing the ever-rising cost of food, rent, child care and travel,” said HACC President Edna V. Baehre, Ph.D.
“Participation in this fund raiser makes it possible for HACC to give scholarships to these most financially needy of our students to allow them to concentrate on their studies,” she said. 
“Last year, the generosity of our sponsors provided $125,000 net in new scholarship funds,” Baehre said. She thanked the many individuals and businesses, including 2009 corporate sponsors GreenWorks Development LLC and Tyco Electronics, for their ongoing generous support to The HACC Foundation.
Over the past 12 years, the golf tournament has raised more than $760,000 in new scholarships dollars for students studying at any of the HACC campuses in Gettysburg, Harrisburg, Lancaster, Lebanon and York.
The tournament opens at 10 a.m. Monday, Sept. 14, with registration and a silent auction. The chipping and putting greens also will open at this time.
After a buffet lunch at 11 a.m., a shotgun start at noon will begin the golfing. A reception and awards ceremony will be held at 5:30 p.m.
The cost is $500 for an individual golfer or $2,000 for a foursome.
