Caddies, Carts, And Clubs For College

This September marks the College of the Canyons Foundation's 19th annual ‘Birdies for Books' charity golf tournament.  All proceeds from this event will aid COC's education programs.   

In an economic downturn, the cost of attending college presents a barrier for many students.  Currently, the cost of attending COC is about $2,100 per year, so support from charity events such as the ‘Birdies for Books' enables the college to continue providing learning opportunities regardless of decreases in government funding.

"With state budgets continually being cut despite increased education and training needs, we are delighted to have the support of a great company like C.A. Rasmussen," states Barry Gribbons, vice president of College of the Canyons. "Events like this enable us to open access to students and community members who need those opportunities now more than ever."

Supporting community education efforts, C.A. Rasmussen, Inc. has decided to sponsor this tournament.

"It's a pleasure to sponsor College of the Canyon's annual golf tournament and it's a great way to spend the day while helping the young minds enrolled at the college," explains Charlie Rasmussen, President of C.A. Rasmussen, Inc.

Golfers will tee off on Monday, September 14, at the Valencia Country Club.
