Swing Fore Students Golf Tournament

Inaugural Golf Tournament raises $38,000 for the Tri County Tech Foundation

The inaugural “Swing Fore Students” Golf Tournament, hosted by the Tri County Tech Foundation at Hillcrest Country Club, united businesses and donors for a day of golf and giving.

Thanks to the overwhelming response from our incredible community, the Tri County Tech Foundation is pleased to announce it raised $38,000. We truly appreciate your enthusiasm and support for this event. These funds will directly benefit students by covering tuition fees, offering essential eye exams, ensuring transportation, and addressing food insecurity. With increasing demand for student support, these unrestricted funds are crucial to Tri County Tech’s mission of ensuring no student is denied an education due to the lack of funds.

“Golfing is a blast, but when it helps others in need, it’s even more rewarding,” Champagne Kane, Tri County Tech Foundation Specialist, said. “Thank you for transforming a day on the golf course into life-changing learning opportunities for our students.”

Our gratitude goes to our Title Sponsors, Ascension St. John Jane Phillips and DSR Bartlesville, whose generous sponsorship made this event possible. We would also like to express our appreciation to the following sponsors for their unwavering support: BOK Financial, Your Culture Coach, ConocoPhillips, Arvest Bank, Oklahoma Wesleyan University, and Truity Credit Union. Your partnerships mean the world to us and are significantly impacting the future of education. Thank you!

Lastly, a round of applause to our tournament champions Chris Truesdell, Charlie Stewart, Keith Crupper, and KY Cole who displayed exceptional golfing skills. Their participation made it an enjoyable day while highlighting their dedication to our students’ success. Congratulations!
