The Foundation for Seminole State College welcomed 124 business leaders and College supporters to its 34th annual Dream Cup Challenge Golf Tournament presented by CFE Federal Credit Union, raising $47,585 for programs, scholarships and other areas of need at the College.
The 18-hole competition, held April 17 at The Legacy Club at Alaqua Lakes, featured putting and course contests, lunch, raffle prizes and a catered dinner. This year, the event had 15 community partners sponsoring holes at the tournament and welcomed the Emil Buehler Perpetual Trust Planetarium as a new sponsor.
“We are again overwhelmed by the tournament and hole sponsors, players and everyone that made our annual Dream Cup a huge success,” said John Gyllin, vice president of resource and economic development for Seminole State. “The day was special, and the funds raised are truly changing lives.”
Sponsoring partners included:
Before the tournament began, two student-athletes were honored with the Mack Blythe Outstanding Freshman of the Year awards for their accomplishments on and off the field. Blythe, the College’s former Business Department chair, founded the Dream Cup Challenge to raise money for student programs and scholarships.
This year’s honorees are:
Thirty-one foursomes took the course during this year’s Challenge. The winning foursome was Don Carlo, Mike Carlo, Dewey Gossett and Chase Khoshou, representing Jax 5th Avenue Deli & Ale House.
The Dream Cup Challenge is one of Seminole County’s premier golf events, perennially garnering a great deal of community support. The Dream Cup Challenge and the Dream Gala, both held during the Spring Term each year, are the Foundation's two largest fundraisers of the year.
