Wade Wilson Golf Tournament A Success for C Club

August 27, 2012

The C-Club’s Wade Wilson Golf Tournament and Auction, held at the Penn Oaks Country Club on August 27, raised over $50,000 in support of the Athletic Department.


Despite intense rain showers that forced a late start, 29 foursomes and a dozen individual golfers took to the course in an effort to raise funds for Cheyney University of Pennsylvania students.  Non-golfers also participated by enjoying a tour of Longwood Gardens and a Wine and Mini Cupcake tasting at Penn Woods Winery.


 "The golf outing is the biggest event the C-Club hosts and it has grown every year since it began. The proceeds support scholarships for athletic programs, the band and the choir,"  C-Club President Bobby Hunter told the overflowing crowd in the Club’s Ballroom.


Cheyney President Michelle Howard-Vital and Athletic Director Ruffin Bell were on hand to accept the life-sized check.
