The RVCC Foundation raised over $127,000 at the 18th Annual RVCC Foundation Golf Classic, held June 20 at the Copper Hill Country Club in Ringoes.

The RVCC Foundation is the fundraising arm of Raritan Valley Community College. It provides the resources that enable the College to enhance its programs beyond public and tuition sources and to maintain its standing as a premier academic institution and one of the most important sources of culture and continuing education in Somerset and Hunterdon counties.

The RVCC Foundation Golf Classic is the non-profit’s largest in-person fundraising event of the year, and this year’s Classic attracted some 55 corporate sponsors, including Title Sponsor, Structural Concepts, Inc. Net proceeds raised from the golf outing and auctions will support student scholarships, RVCC’s education programming and other institutional priorities.

This year, 126 enthusiastic golfers—from many local businesses—participated in the event, which included a 50/50 raffle, wine cork pull, a silent auction and a live auction. The highlights of the day included the singing of the National Anthem by RVCC student and music major Victoria Mango (Class of ’23), and remarks from Rebecca Purnell, Student Commencement Speaker from the RVCC Class of ’22, and Malachi White, student athlete from the RVCC Men’s Basketball team and a member of RVCC Class of ’23. Purnell and White both shared their experiences at the College and described how RVCC transformed their journeys and helped them to succeed and flourish.
