The St. Tammany Chamber of Commerce’s Swinging for Scholarships Golf Tournament will be held on Thursday, Oct. 15th this year at Oak Harbor Golf Club in Slidell. Proceeds from the tournament fund scholarships for St. Tammany students planning to attend a Louisiana college or university and major in business.
Last year, $1,000 scholarships were awarded to St. Tammany high school seniors, Analiese Donovan from Covington High School and Madelyn Zambiasi from Lakeshore High School.
“The Chamber is committed to the growth of business and keeping local talent in our community,” said St. Tammany Chamber CEO Lacey Osborne. “We hope our annual golf tournament will enable us to continue to award scholarships.”
Tournament registration is at 11 a.m. followed by a shotgun start at noon. Players will enjoy Putting for Proof, Closest to the Hole and Longest Drive contests as well as business networking opportunities, food from Middendorf’s Seafood Restaurant and Patton’s Caterers, and knowing that proceeds will benefit local scholars.
Special thanks go to Middendorf’s - Slidell as the tournament’s master sponsor, as well as to sponsors Kent Design Build, Inc., St Tammany and Ochsner Health Systems, Blue Williams Attorneys, Jefferson Financial Federal Credit Union and Silver Slipper Casino and Hotel—and to Media Sponsor Edge of the Lake Magazine.
