Stamford Dollars for Scholars fills a void in our community by providing scholarship assistance to high school graduates who live or attend high school in Stamford, and who want to pursue education beyond high school. We share a passionate belief that education changes the lives of individuals and communities for the better.
We were conceived around a simple idea: together we can step in and help local students achieve their educational goals. There's no greater gift we can give our student neighbors-in-need than access to the tools to create a brighter future. Doing so tells them that we take pride in their determination and share their dreams.
Join us at E. Gaynor Brennan Golf Course and Zody's 19th Hole for a day of golf, food, drink and fun! A great way to enjoy an Autumn afternoon and support local high school graduates planning for college. Gather your foursome - or let us put one together for you. Not a golfer? Come join us for our post tournament dinner - great food and drink, entertainment and great raffle and auction values.
Sponsor opportunities are available as well - our tournament sponsors include a foursome and a sponsored scholarship in the name of your organization. You can sponsor Lunch, Beverages, Apparel, Golf Holes or donate a raffle or auction item.
