President's Golf Classic set for May 19
A tradition of raising money for BBC&S student scholarships through play at a championship-caliber golf course will continue this May .
The President's Golf Classic is Monday, May 19 at Glen Oak Country Club in Waverly, PA, just minutes from campus. Registration and other details are online at www.bbc.edu/golfclassic.
The event, held annually in Northeastern Pennsylvania since 2005, has raised significant funds for student scholarships, with more than $60,000 contributed last year. Golfers and local business sponsors raise funds, with the event providing an opportunity for friends of BBC&S to be involved in the work of equipping students for global Christian leadership.
"We greatly appreciate the generosity of these sponsors and golfers," said BBC&S President Jim Jeffery. "They are enabling us to provide greater scholarships for students and making a tremendous investment in the future."

Businesses form a critical foundation of support for the event.
"Sponsors see, firsthand, the direct impact the President's Golf Classic has on the lives of students," said Jim Burke, Senior Vice President and Chief Lending Officer, Wayne Bank. "By supporting this event, sponsors make possible what otherwise may be unattainable for some students. There are many students at the event. After speaking with them and hearing how grateful they are for the support, sponsors walk away knowing they have made a deep impact on the lives of many."
A range of business sponsorships are available. Details are online here.
Mr. Burke, who chairs the event planning committee, first became involved as a participant and sponsor in 2006.
"We understand the importance of giving back to the communities we serve," he said. "We're grateful to be part of the mission BBC&S strives to achieve."
