The 37th Annual Herb McGuire PCI Golf Tournament welcomed approximately 65 Centre athletes and other College supporters on Saturday, May 17, for a daylong benefit in support of the Praying Colonels Fund. Held at the Danville Country Club, the invitational is the largest single fundraising event for Centre’s athletic and recreation programs, directly supporting the College’s 600 student-athletes. This year’s tournament raised $30,000 for the fund.

“While the tournament generates critical financial support for our continued pursuit of excellence,” explains Centre Director of Athletics and Recreation Brad Fields, “equally important are the relationships formed and cultivated throughout the years as a result of this important event.”
