With a chilly start the 22nd Annual IBERIABANK/BRTC Foundation Golf Tournament had another successful year and raised over $50,000.
The tournament was held October 2 at the Rolling Hills Country Club in Pocahontas. Proceeds from the tournament go toward to student scholarships. In fact, the golf tournament is the largest fundraiser for BRTC scholarships.

Running this event would not be possible without the help of all the volunteers including the BRTC Foundation Board members, staff and board members of the Rolling Hills Country Club, and employees of IBERIABANK, Baltz Chevy-Olds, and Integrity 1st Bank.
In addition, more than 80 individuals and organizations gave money, goods, and services to the tournament. Without them, the event would not have been possible. More importantly, many students will benefit from receiving scholarships to complete their education at BRTC.
“It is always rewarding to see the large crowds supporting this event,” said Kelly Rose, BRTC Foundation Chair and Vice President and Commercial Relationship Manager for Regional Banking of IBERABANK. “From sponsors to volunteers to participants, support for the event was remarkable. The BRTC Foundation is humbled by the support of our partners and community as we seek to continue our support of the BRTC mission. Thanks to all for making the event a fun and successful day.”
