Purpose

We expect this year's golf classic to attract over 100 golfers and 40 sponsors. Increasingly in popularity, the outing now brings golfers of all levels who support this event that mixes business with pleasure.

The Senior Opportunity Scholarship (SOS) is a program that was established to have a direct impact on rising juniors and graduating seniors at Coppin State University. The program was developed by the CSU Development Foundation Board of Directors in 2011. Since that time, the funds raised have enabled students at Coppin to finish strong. The scholarship provides aid to worthy students who are close to graduation but have exhausted their financial aid. Often times, students faced with this type of financial challenge cannot complete their degree program and go on to start their career or to attain an advanced degree.

The goal for 2020 is to raise $50,000 to support the SOS Program.
