On Tuesday, October 1, 2019, friends of Cairn University assembled for the 24th annual Golf Classic fundraiser. Returning to the Philadelphia Cricket Club in Flourtown, PA, 162 participants took to the course for a day of golf and skills competitions in order to support student scholarships at Cairn University. The event generated a record of over $88,000 for The Cairn Fund, far surpassing last year’s impressive support of over $60,000.
Golfers enjoyed a beautiful, warm day on one of the finest courses in the Philadelphia area. After the golfing and skills contests, a meal and ceremony for the award-winners took place on the Philadelphia Cricket Club’s historic grounds.
This year’s Golf Classic Legacy Award was presented to Dr. Edgar Brightbill, Cairn Board of Trustees Emeritus. This award recognizes faithful support of the University, as well as participation in bringing the Golf Classic to fruition. Because of efforts by Dr. Brightbill and many other Cairn faculty, staff, and associates, students at the University benefit from this significant financial support through the outing.
Special thanks to our host sponsor, Penn Community Bank, members of the Golf Committee and the advancement, athletics, and marketing departments for organizing and participating in the event, as well as to all of our many generous sponsors, attendees, and volunteers.
Save the date for next year! We will be back at the Philadelphia Cricket Club on May 11, 2020, for the 25th Cairn University Golf Classic.
