Every year, Albany Technical College has two events to help raise scholarship money for its students.

An annual golf tournament in the fall marks their final even for the year

The Albany Tech Foundation, Inc. puts together the benefit with a mission in providing scholarship money for the students, along with other initiatives needed by the College.

64 different golfers attended the event and participated in the 18 hole event, along with college president Dr. Anthony Parker.

The format for the event was a two man scramble with a provided lunch, and prizes at the end for the top finishers of the day.

The event was held at Stonebridge Golf and Country Club and the turn out couldn't have been better, but in the end, it necessarily wasn't about how good you played, it was about the students.
