NEW HAVEN—Albertus Magnus College is pleased to announce that its second annual Golf Classic to benefit the Silver Horn Scholarship Fund was held on July 20 at the New Haven Country Club in Hamden, Connecticut. Adhering to State guidelines to promote the health and safety of participants, the outing attracted 100 golfers representing Albertus alumni and benefactors and businesses throughout the state.
The Silver Horn Scholarship Fund was established in 2018 with the inauguration of Albertus President, Dr. Marc M. Camille. Silver Horn Scholarships provide essential financial support to enrolled Albertus students who face unexpected financial hardship, assisting them with staying on track to earn their Albertus degrees. In its first two years of existence, the Albertus Golf Classic has raised more than $150,000 in support of essential scholarship support for students. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and the economic downfall, fundraising initiatives to support students in need have become increasingly important.
Area businesses and organizations stepped-up to support this great cause including Title Sponsor Yale-New Haven Health System.
“We are grateful to the businesses, individuals, and volunteers who supported this event so that we can continue to help transform lives, especially in these unprecedented times,” said Albertus Vice President of Advancement, Mary Young ’91. “Community support and engagement are essential in preparing our students, our graduates to be effective, values-driven critical thinkers and solution seekers as part of their lifelong civic engagement and success.”
