Athletics Annual Golf Classic a Success

RALEIGH, N.C. - The 15th Annual Meredith College Golf Classic was held Monday, April 8, at North Raleigh's Wildwood Green Golf Club. More than 70 golfers registered in support of Meredith athletics and enjoyed a warm spring day at the links.

Platinum sponsor Aramark provided boxed lunches for players and volunteers just prior to the 1 p.m. shotgun start. Second-year gold sponsor Camp Bow Wow provided gifts for the silent auction and members of the staff attended the day's event. Gregory Vineyards provided samples for tasting throughout the day and offered golfers the opportunity to enjoy the sweet North Carolina muscadine wines, and Dr Jimmy B's Mobile Cigar Bar camped out for the day as well.

With the 18 holes complete, Tournament Director Fiona Barkley and Athletics Director Jackie Myers presented the awards, raffle winners and silent auction recipients, while participants and special guests enjoyed a delicious cookout provided by the club.
