The South East College held a Swing for Scholarships fundraiser at the Estevan TS&M Woodlawn Golf Course on Wednesday. 

"It was a fantastic day, the weather was awesome. We had 44 golfers on the course, they had a great day of golf followed by a wonderful meal back at the college. At the end of the day we raised close to $12,000 in scholarship funds, which will be matched by the government of Saskatchewan through the Saskatchewan Innovation and Opportunity Scholarship program, so about $24,000," stated Dave Harzany, the Manager of the College Advancement at the South East College.

"Our tournament had a little bit of a different structure this year but we can't complain at all. The money will definitely go towards funding entrance awards for full time students who are taking programs at the college. The funds benefit people looking to further their education and further their careers and it positively impacts our community here in the south east."

"We use our golf tournament money to create entrance awards, $500 for students that register for full time programs. Everyone gets a $500 entrance award if they get their application in by June 30th," explained Harzany. 

"This year is our 6th year in Estevan, we've been running the tournament in Weyburn for 20 years and we've started it in Moosomin as well. We are doing the event in multiple communities across the south east. It's our 2nd year partnering with Wil-Tech Industries on this event, the support from them and all of the participants have been fantastic."
