Ravenswood, W.Va. (July 30, 2015) – On July 30th, Fruth Pharmacy held its annual golf tournament at Greenhills Country Club in Ravenswood, WV.
For 24 years, the golf tournament has been a tradition to help raise scholarship funds for deserving students at many local universities. Several scholarships provide an opportunity for Fruth employees or their children to seek a college degree. Fruth Pharmacy also contributes to the national NACDS Scholarship Program which provides scholarships to pharmacy students. Overall, Fruth Pharmacy and the Fruth Family support over 28 scholarships.
Vendors from all over the country came to Ravenswood to participate. These vendors generously donated funds, prizes, and other items needed for the event.
Golf tournament participants are treated to breakfast, lunch on the course, a drive-thru ice-cream stand, dinner, silent auction, putting and chipping contests, and door prizes for every golfer. All participants also receive a goody bag.
“I enjoy seeing the students that our scholarships have helped come out to participate. It’s good for the students to see how this event unfolds to raise money for their scholarships. It’s also great that our donors get the opportunity to meet and speak with our scholarship students,” Lynne Fruth, President for Fruth Pharmacy commented.
Fruth scholarship winners participate during the day by helping out as needed with the various contests, delivery of drink and food items, taking photos and more, during the tournament.
