Madison, Wis. (July 21, 2016) – Edgewood College is pleased to announce that with the final Tee Up for Nursing event concluded this week, the charitable golf outing has passed the one million dollar mark for fundraising.
“The goal of Tee Up when it was started 13 years ago was to raise $1 million in funding for our nursing students,” President Scott Flanagan said. “We are both touched and grateful that our benefactors, sponsors, and friends of the College through the years have taken that goal to heart. While we begin to write the next chapters for the Henry Predolin School of Nursing, the impact of Tee Up will be felt not only today, but for years to come, through our graduates serving in healthcare in our communities.”
“The scholarships I have received have allowed me to fully concentrate on my education at Edgewood College,” said Tyler Houston, a senior from Waterloo, Wis. “My education has presented me with opportunities to grow and prepare for my future career as a registered nurse. Edgewood College has given me the foundation for success and for that I am grateful.”
Tee Up for Nursing was created in 2004 to assist nursing students who rely on financial assistance. Money raised from the annual event supports scholarships through an endowment, created exclusively to provide financial assistance for nursing student at Edgewood College.
