“Make the Hole, Make a Difference”: Pamlico Community College Foundation’s 18th Annual Pepsi Cup Golf Tournament Set for May 19
Golfers: save the date for Pamlico Community College Foundation’s 18th annual Pepsi Cup Golf Tournament.
The $500 Closest to the Pin prize on Hole 9 is back this year, thanks again to Andy Vestal of BB&T Scott and Stringfellow, who is also a Platinum sponsor. A winner is guaranteed! Bob Dillard of Pamlico County was last year’s winner.
There are also prizes for the first-, second- and third-place teams in both a Men’s Division and a Women’s or Mixed Division; prizes for longest drives and closest to the pin contests on several other holes, and of course the sought-after Hole in One prize on Hole 5, refreshed this year: a trip for four to Disney World or $10,000 in cash.
Free drawings for door prizes, a 50/50 raffle and a silent auction benefitting the college’s new Philippines Environmental Science Study Abroad program offer more reasons to attend.
The Pepsi Cup Golf Tournament, which is named in honor of the Minges Bottling Group of Ayden for its contributions to PCC, is the Foundation’s largest annual fundraiser. Proceeds are used to fund student scholarships at the college. Last year, the Foundation awarded more than 60 scholarships totaling more than $50,000 to students, including funds raised annually by the golf tournament.
