The PCC Foundation Golf Invitational hit a major milestone this year in dollars and duration.

The ever-popular event that gathers golf enthusiasts to Heron Lakes Golf Course each September celebrated its 10th year. And during that time nearly $1.1 million has been raised for student scholarships in Building Construction Technology.

Peter Marta, who hopes to graduate next spring with a degree in Building Construction Technology, recently received a scholarship which has provided some support as he changes industries and pursues work as a general contractor.

“I’ve always had an interest in construction but no experience and now I’m learning all I can about the industry,” said Marta, adding that cabinetmaking is among his favorite classes.

Back in 2004 leaders from local construction businesses, Howard S. Wright, Walsh Construction, Skanska and Emerick Construction, banded together to organize and sponsor the first-ever golf invitational. The goal was to provide financial assistance to students enrolled in PCC’s construction program. Over time the fundraiser has gained momentum, attracting more businesses and individuals who spend a day on the course and in turn provide opportunity for a student in need.

“We believe in PCC and how the college engages the community and prepares students for the workforce. Howard S. Wright’s commitment to PCC and students in the Building Construction Technology runs deep and long as we see the benefits of supporting men and women who will pursue careers in construction and who will someday work at job sites in the local area,” said Jeff Ganz, project executive at Howard S. Wright.

"Construction is a critical part of our economy and we’re doing our part to ensure that students in need of scholarships and financial assistance attend college. It is about improving lives and we know a college education will help graduates find family-wage careers.”

The cornerstone golf event not only raises critical funding for the Foundation and student scholarships but it also builds and strengthens the deep history and relationships PCC shares with construction partners in the Bond Program.

The golf invitational serves at the Foundation’s longest running special event and even jumpstarted other events, such as the successful and popular Annual Gala held in the spring.
