SANFORD — The Central Carolina Community College Foundation’s 19th Annual Golf Classic attracted a large crowd of golfers for a great cause.

“Those playing had a great time and helped to raise funds for a wonderful community cause: education,” said Diane Glover, Foundation executive director.

The Golf Classic is the foundation’s largest fundraiser. About $30,000 has been received so far from the Sept. 24 event at Quail Ridge Golf Course, with donations still coming in. In the last four years, more than $100,000 has been raised.

Proceeds are used primarily to provide scholarships for students enrolled at the college’s campuses in Chatham, Lee and Harnett counties or taking classes by distance education. They also help to fund summer technology camps for youth and faculty training.

Local businesses, industries and organizations sponsored 142 players in foursomes for the competition. Two tournaments were held: Captain’s Choice in the morning and Best Ball in the afternoon. The winners were:
