Golf benefit raises $7,500 for DuBois athletics

After careful calculation, the final totals are in for the Penn State DuBois Athletic Golf Benefit on Aug. 24, at the Treasure Lake Silver Course. Hosted by the DuBois Education Foundation and the Penn State DuBois Athletics Fundraising Committee, the event raised $7,500 for campus intercollegiate athletic programs. A total of 84 golfers played in the tournament.

The winning team was comprised of Aaron Beatty, Paul Ignatius, Scott Casteel and John Schneider. They shot a 17 under par (55). Each member of the winning team received a new pair of Footjoy golf shoes. 

Title Sponsors for the event were Johnson Motors and Advanced Disposal; Event Level sponsors were DRMC, and McDonalds of DuBois and Brockway. More than 30 additional businesses or individuals also contributed sponsorship funding or gifts for the golf outing.  Aaron Beatty, who has been the golf committee chairmen the past three years, organized the event with the help of 25 volunteers who shared the day with the golfers on the course to make the tournament a success. 

After the tournament a meal of Italian sausage and meatballs sandwiches was shared by all the participants and skill prizes were awarded for all 18 holes.
