Trine's annual golf outing raises more than $85,000 for scholarships

August 05, 2014

Friday was a fun and productive day at Trine University when more than $85,000 was raised for the scholarship fund during the Alumni & Friends 24th Annual Scholarship Golf Outing.

Sixty-one teams of four competed on Friday, Aug. 1, at Zollner Golf Course.

First place went to a Trine University Kappa Sigma fraternity team with Andrew Lesher and alumni Shawn Floyd '09, Alex Lorencz '10 and Andrew Wolf, '11. Second place was captured by Casa Ristoranti Italiano, a team representing Northwest Comprehensive in Chicago. Landing in third was Auburn Concrete & Mason, Auburn.

Another popular part of the outing is the 50/50 ball drop when golf balls are dropped from a helicopter. Paul Saylor of Angola won the event with his golf ball landing closest to a designated pin. Trine trustee Jack Shaw made the drop possible by donating the use of his Bell 47G Helo, a Korean War-era helicopter.

Fun fact: Angola Mayor Dick Hickman hit closet to the pin at the par-3 hole number 2.

The annual golf outing benefits the Trine Fund for scholarships, which enables deserving students to earn a degree at Trine. Next year, the outing is scheduled for Aug. 7.
