MAY 6 CAPE ANN CHAMBER GOLF TOURNAMENT TO FOCUS ON BUSINESS AND EDUCATION: PAR FOR THE COURSE


Time to clean off those golf clubs in preparation for the annual Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce golf tournament!

The Chamber, in conjunction with the Business Education Collaborative, will host the 24th annual event at Bass Rocks Golf Club on Monday, May 6 and help to provide scholarship support for students at Gloucester High School, Manchester-Essex Regional High School, North Shore Vocational Technical High School and Rockport High School.

Tee time is at 1:00 pm and it is a shotgun start scramble. Individual golfers can sign up for $175 each, which includes a cart, green fee, clubhouse facilities, ticket to the awards dinner and a gift bag. If you would like more information on playing or sponsoring the event, please contact Emily Harris at emily@capeannchamber.com or call the Chamber at 978-283-1601.

Through the efforts of the Business Education Collaborative, numerous scholarships have been awarded to area students dating back to 1988. With the help of the Chamber, the Collaborative’s primary objective is to forge links between the local business community and the Cape Ann area schools. School administrators and business people from all four communities have been instrumental in helping to provide students with the necessary tools to further education.

Students that have been awarded Chamber scholarships have attended such schools as Bates College, Penn State University, Dartmouth College and the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
