To benefit the GTE Financial Scholarship Foundation: Making Higher Education a Reality, One Putt at a Time.
Last year’s inaugural Scholarship Scramble tournament allowed GTE’s Scholarship Foundation to award 24 scholarships to really deserving local students. This year our goal is to give 50 scholarships to local students who are dedicated to their education and community.
Chris Oppenheimer, AVP Support at Integra Business Systems observed, " The entire event was tremendous! The cocktail reception party included live music by a American Idol contestant who sang beautifully, wonderful food and a fantastic firework show. They kicked off the Golf outing with the USF Marching Band and Majorettes. Each hole had a festive theme and was sponsored by different companies/vendors. They had St Patties Day hole including a Bag Piper, Mexican Cinco De Mayo hole including an Ass (Burro), Pirate Ship with Pirates and Wenches, Summer Beach Spring Break hole with a pool, Oktoberfest Beer tasting, 4th of July with a marshmallow driving competition, a X-Mas Hole that you could win a free car. The day was capped off with banquet and an awards program including an assortment of prizes."
What the GTE Financial scholarship recipients are saying:
Kelly, a 2013 GTE scholarship recipient “I think it’s extremely important to give back to your community so that others may have the opportunity to benefit from your gift. Through this gift, others may have the opportunity to pay it forward.” And Emily, another scholarship winner “This scholarship is like a blessing. I have a lot on my plate as a double major, and this money will allow me to take an additional volunteer position which means so much to me.”
