The Stanly Community College Foundation recently hosted the 14th Annual Stanly Classic Golf Tournament at the Tillery Tradition Country Club, located in Mt. Gilead, NC. The Stanly Classic is the signature event of the SCC Foundation and provides support to the College and SCC students.

Thanks to the support of the tournament sponsors and team participants, the SCC Foundation raised approximately $52,000 for Stanly Community College. Leading sponsors for the event included Platinum Sponsors – Bear Insurance Service and Uwharrie Bank; Gold Sponsors – Michelin US11 and ScanOnline; Golf Sponsor – J. T. Russell & Sons, Inc.; Lunch Sponsors – South Central Oil and B.R.S., Inc.; Hole-in-one Sponsor – Friendly Chevrolet. Along with the leading sponsors, the tournament was also supported with six beverage cart sponsorships and thirty hole sponsors.
