CCRI Alumni Association raises funds for students
June 16, 2011
The Community College of Rhode Island Alumni Association raised more than $15,500 for student assistance programs through its annual golf tournament held at the North Kingstown Golf Course on June 15. More than 130 golfers participated. Proceeds from the tournament will directly benefit students with financial need through tuition assistance and emergency funds for college expenses as well as money to buy textbooks and supplies.

Key sponsors of the tournament included Ameresco, Celtic Energy, DiGennaro & Palumbo LLP, Honeywell, J. Arthur Trudeau Memorial Center and The Washington Trust Company. A dozen corporate foursome sponsors and 44 tee sign sponsors also provided key contributions. The event concluded with a raffle and an auction with prizes provided by 24 companies and individuals.
The annual tournament was established by the CCRI Alumni Association nine years ago. The association, which has 57,500 members, is made up of CCRI graduates of degree and certificate programs and students who have earned a minimum of 30 credits. Each year the association sponsors a number of activities, including social gatherings for alumni and fundraisers like the golf tournament, which provide support for current students.
