The fundraiser, to begin at 8 a.m. on Sept. 27 at the Colonial Golf and Tennis Club, will support Penn State Harrisburg’s growing NCAA Division III intercollegiate athletic program, which includes numerous participants from high schools in central Pennsylvania.

Participants should register by Sept. 20 to interact with college athletes, coaches, and athletic administrators; enjoy a relaxing game of golf; and support the Penn State Harrisburg athletic department.

Prizes will be awarded for first, second and third place for participants. Additional competitions include closest to the pin, long drive, straight drive, power drive, putting contest and beat-the-pro.

The cost for individual golfers is $125, or $500 for a team of four. Non-golfers may attend lunch for $25.

Sponsorship opportunities are available, including tournament sponsors for $5,000; eagle sponsors for $3,000; and birdie sponsors for $2,000.

Additional sponsorships include par sponsors for $1,000; cart sponsors for $500; contest hole sponsors at $500; and hole sponsors for $100.

Through fundraising efforts, the college strives to expand facilities and support athletic programs that will provide more opportunities for student-athletes to reach the highest levels of individual and team achievement.
