The 25th Annual IBERIABANK/BRTC Foundation Golf Tournament had another successful year and raised over $40,000.
The tournament was held September 28 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, BRTC faculty and staff volunteers, and employees of IBERIABANK, Baltz Chevy-Olds, and Integrity 1st Bank.
In addition, more than 120 individuals and organizations gave money, goods, and services to the tournament. Without these sponsors, including Harps Foods who sponsored the Harps Food Tent, the event would not have been possible. More importantly, many students will benefit from scholarships essential to completing their education at BRTC.
