Since 2008, the tournaments timed to coincide with the college’s anniversary observances have raised more than $1 million for about 500 students through the college's Scholarship Fund. More than 1,500 golfers have swung for this innovative event with the college since the event began in 2008. About 100 of the “tourney alumni” return season after season, and 150 should enter for the March 1 event, said Dr. Sharon Crockett-Ray, the college’s director of institutional advancement. 

The donors are an effective economic engine who help a vibrant community college make San Antonio a better San Antonio as a team. A Student Engagement Grant initiative funded by tourney proceeds inspires faculty to develop innovative projects where students experience while San Antonio benefits. In turn, proceeds from the goodwill project fund tuition and textbook costs for students who pledge to serve by gaining knowledge, engaging and giving back in real-time through a bevy of innovative service with organizations that help people. Annual Student Engagement Grant alumni achievement cycles range from assisting clients in one of the nation’s leading volunteer income tax preparation sites to advocating the importance of cybersecurity within San Antonio which is the hub of the Western Hemisphere's second largest cybersecurity sector. 

Golfer/donor e-registration is underway at https://www.alamo.edu/spc/golf-tournament/ for the March 1 event, and all are welcome to contact tournament project lead Dr. Sharon Crockett-Ray at 210-486-2887, scrockett-bell@alamo.edu for details.
