Spring Golf Classic & Scholarship Gala
The Tenth Annual Spring Golf & Scholarship Gala was held on Saturday, March 29, 2014, at Fiddlesticks Country Club in Fort Myers.
This event has grown to be one of the most anticipated and supported golf tournaments in Southwest Florida. The net proceeds from this event support the Men in Higher Education Scholarship Fund and the Scholarship Assistance for Veterans Education (SAVE) Fund.
Approximately 32 percent of the student body at Hodges University is male and over 10 percent of the student body are veterans. The Men in Higher Education Scholarship Fund and the SAVE Fund will greatly increase our ability to support the goals and aspirations of our outstanding male students and veteran students who will in turn enrich our society with their knowledge and leadership. Thank you for believing as we do that providing a scholarship is an investment in the men of today, and their sons and daughters of tomorrow.
