15th Annual LSC Foundation Golf Tournament a Swinging Success
HOUSTON (Nov. 4, 08) — LSC Foundation recently hosted its 15th Annual Golf Tournament at The Woodlands Country Club Palmer Course.

More than 190 golfers teed it up for the Florida Scramble-style tournament, which generated over $75,000 in support of student scholarships and system programs. Participants enjoyed hole-in-one prize opportunities, hole contests and door prizes. An awards ceremony and prime rib dinner, sponsored by Oceaneering International, Inc., followed the conclusion of the tournament.

Masters level sponsors included Administaff Inc., Advanced Systems Group (ASG) and SHW Group LLP. Classic level sponsors were Caldwell Companies, Gensler, MATTCO Manufacturing, Methodist Willowbrook Hospital, Wells Fargo and The Woodlands Waterway Marriott.

SHW Group, a long-time supporter of the Foundation, sponsored the tournament and is building a permanent endowment for scholarships.  “SHW has the opportunity to work with many foundations and I can say with confidence that LSC Foundation is one of the best in the country,” Principal Don Hensley said.

The golf tournament offers our supporters a unique opportunity to help students while participating in a fun event,” Darcy Mingoia, LSC Foundation executive director explained.

“We had a great time, the golf course was excellent and the foundation staff did a great job hosting all the players,” said Fred Caldwell, Caldwell Companies and first place tournament winner.

“We are grateful for the opportunity to support the foundation’s mission of providing scholarships to help change lives,” said Caldwell.

Funds raised through the tournament provide opportunities for LSCS students to learn the skills necessary for jobs that will ultimately contribute to the vitality of the economy.

“The support of our contributors changes lives by funding educational opportunities and programs,” Mingoia added.
“We are grateful for each and every one those contributors,” she said.
