The RVCC Foundation raised over $117,000 at the 17th Annual RVCC Foundation Golf Classic held recently at the Cherry Valley Country Club in Skillman.

The RVCC Foundation is the fundraising arm of Raritan Valley Community College. It provides the resources that enable the College to enhance its programs beyond public and tuition sources and to maintain its standing as a premier academic institution and one of the most important sources of culture and continuing education in Somerset and Hunterdon counties.

The RVCC Foundation Golf Classic is the nonprofit’s largest fundraising event of the year—a year in which so many RVCC students and their families have been impacted by COVID-19. Thanks to the generosity of 55 corporate sponsors, including Title Sponsor Arbee Associates/Steelcase, individuals and community partners, this year’s Golf Classic was another success. Net proceeds raised from the golf outing and auctions will support student scholarships, RVCC’s education programming and other institutional priorities.

This year, 107 enthusiastic golfers from many local businesses participated in the June 21 event, which included a 50/50 raffle, a silent auction and a live auction. The highlight of the day were the remarks from RVCC student speakers Ka’Sheer Cassett (Class of ’22) and Rebecca Geary (Class of ’21), who shared their experiences at the College and how scholarship support has transformed their lives, enabling them to succeed.
