The Homosassa Game and Fish Club presented a check for $4,528 to the CF Foundation for student scholarships. In 2005, the club partnered with the CF Foundation to establish an endowed scholarship for CF students from Homosassa and Citrus County.
“We are so grateful to the Homosassa Game and Fish Club for their annual scholarship support,” said Dr. Vernon Lawter, vice president, Regional Campuses at the College of Central Florida. “Their donation from monies raised through their tournament each year creates opportunities for students to fulfill their dreams and helps build a stronger community.”
The funds presented this year came from the 35th annual Cobia “Big Fish” tournament held in June. The tournament is organized by a group of dedicated volunteers who not only wish to provide the Nature Coast with an exciting fishing tournament, but also want to raise funds to assist with various community needs and help local nonprofit organizations.
The CF Foundation, founded in 1959, is a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation that enhances the college’s programs and services through the development and management of private contributions and community partnerships. To learn more, visit CF.edu/foundation.
