The Technical College of the Lowcountry Foundation will hold  the “Building our Community” Golf Tournament Monday, July 30 at Hampton Hall.  The event, sponsored by CareCore National, will benefit the TCL Foundation Scholarship Fund.


“Student aid is more important now than ever,” TCL President Dr. Tom Leitzel said.  “Recent changes in federal regulations have made it more difficult for deserving students to get the assistance they need. This makes support from the Foundation even more critical.”


“As a TCL graduate, I know how students struggle to make ends meet,” said Golf Tournament Chairman, Derrick Coaxum.  “Eight out of ten TCL students need help with paying for their tuition and books.  We hope the proceeds from the golf tournament go a long way to helping meet many students’ needs.”


The tournament will feature a scramble format for both men and women.  Golfers may try to a $10,000 Hole-in- One prize and a $50,000 raffle shootout competition.  The $100 per person registration includes the cart, gift bag, a box lunch, and the hole-in-one contest.  Registration begins at 8  a.m. at Hampton Hall and the Shotgun start will be at 9 a.m. sharp.


In addition to  CareCore National, event sponsors include:

  • Silver –  Atlantic Community Bank, WDM Inc., Head to Toes Beauty Supply, and Marriott.
  • Bronze –  Atlantic Asphalt, Creative Structures, Nix Construction Company, Hilton Head Automotive, Andy Beall, and Gail Quick.
  • Other – SERG and Palmetto Electric


Sponsorships at the Platinum ($5,000), Gold ($2,500), Silver ($1,000), and Bronze ($500) levels are still available.  To become a sponsor or to register, please call Institutional Advancement Executive Director Louise Mathews at 843.470.5962 or email
