Bay De Noc Community Collegeâ??s 24th annual Swing for Scholarships golf outing took place Thursday. Over 140 golfers gathered at the Escanaba Country Club to help raise about $25,000 for Bay College students.
Since it began, the annual golf outing has helped 222 students by providing over $270,000 in scholarships. Itâ??s not just the students that win with this outing. This year, golfers had a chance to win a brand new car as well as other luxury gifts. The event had 36 teams each comprised of four golfers, and for many of the teams, this is not their first time.
â??Well, Iâ??ve been attending this event for all 24 years,â?? said golfer Michael Nardi. â??Itâ??s one of my favorite events, it goes to a great cause for the scholarships for Bay College. Weâ??re looking forward to it, weâ??re four time winners and weâ??re going to make it five today.â??
Next yearâ??s golf outing is scheduled for July 16th.
