SALISBURY, N.C. — The Rowan-Cabarrus Community College Foundation is excited to hold its tenth annual Golf Classic on Friday, October 19, 2018, at the Country Club of Salisbury.

The Rowan-Cabarrus Foundation is committed to raising funds for the College, providing monetary resources for student scholarships, necessary updates to technology and equipment across the College’s campuses in Rowan and Cabarrus counties, and workforce development programs in areas such as advanced technology and healthcare.

“I hope you will join the Foundation for a fun-filled and meaningful effort,” said Paul Brown, one of the tournament’s co-chairs and member of the Rowan-Cabarrus Foundation Board of Directors. “The Golf Classic is one way you can give to the college and its students, many of whom would not be able to attend college without your continued care and support.”

“The golf classic helps provide funding to support academic programming and capital needs, grants for veterans and other needs of the College and the local community,” said Jenn Selby, director of philanthropy and the arts.Jenn Selby takes photo with paticipate of golf tournament
