The Racine Founders Rotary Club will host its annual Dennis Barry STRIVE Scholarship Golf Classic on Monday, Sept. 9 to raise funds to support the club’s annual scholarship awards to local high school graduates. This year the club awarded five scholarships totaling $10,000.
Named to remember Dennis Barry, a long-standing and energized local Rotarian, the scholarships are intended for students who began their high school career in the bottom 50 percent of their freshmen class, but by their senior year have shown significant improvement in their academic performance, as well as active involvement in school and community activities.
Winners also display many positive attributes including “Service above Self,” the Rotary International motto coined by founder Paul P. Harris who was born in Racine.
The outing will take place at the Racine Country Club, 2801 Northwestern Ave., Racine, with registration from 11 a.m. – noon, lunch at 11:15 a.m., Scramble Start at 12:15 p.m., Cocktails, and Dinner at 5:30 p.m.
The cost is $170 per person or $680 for a foursome. For sponsorship info or to register golfers, call Patrick Booth at (262) 504-5552 or email Patrick.firstname.lastname@example.org by Aug. 31.
