Running this event would not be possible without the help of all the volunteers including the BRTC Foundation Board members, staff and board members of the Rolling Hills Country Club, BRTC faculty and staff volunteers, and employees of IBERIABANK, Baltz Chevy-Olds, and Integrity 1st Bank.
In addition, more than 120 individuals and organizations gave money, goods, and services to the tournament. Without these sponsors, the event would not have been possible. More importantly, many students will benefit from scholarships essential to completing their education at BRTC.
