DCC Foundation Golf Tournament Raises More Than $45,000

July 1, 2009

Poughkeepsie, N.Y. – Dutchess Golf and Country Club was packed on June 1 with foursomes shooting for a good cause – student scholarships.

The 20th Annual Golf Tournament and Dinner, in memory of Jack Orcutt, raised $45,600 for the Dutchess Community College Foundation to help fund scholarship awards for DCC students.

“Knowing that the proceeds of our golf tournament go for scholarships to help students in the Hudson Valley makes DCC’s event very fulfilling for the people involved,” said DCC Foundation Executive Director Patricia Prunty.

The team of Roger Smith, Jason Smith, Craig Busby and John Rickert took first place in the scramble format tournament, the team of Victor Feit, Stefano Ottanianni, Gary Stauderman and Tim Hewitt came in second, and the team of Mike McCormack, Chuck Liscum, Ray VanVoorhis and Mark Fellenzer, placed third.

The longest drive competition was won by Julia Hamilton in the women’s class and Ike Lovelass in the men’s, while the closest-to-the-pin contest was won by Kari Daniels in the women’s class and Alan Daniels in the men’s.

Jack Orcutt was DCC’s first director of student activities and a founding member of the faculty.

In addition to the 18 holes of golf, the event featured a barbecue lunch, cocktails, soft drinks, an awards dinner, prizes, sponsor recognition, and a raffle drawing immediately following the tournament.

Llelanie Orcutt and Marshall and Sterling were Ace Sponsors, Chazen Companies was the Giveaway Sponsor, DCH Toyota of Wappingers Falls was the Hole-in-One Sponsor, Liscum McCormack VanVoorhis, Meyer Contracting Corporation, and Sherman Furniture were all Eagle Sponsors.
