Emory & Henry To Host Fifth Annual I-HEY Golf Tournament

EMORY, Va. – The Emory & Henry College Athletic Department will hold its Fifth Annual I-HEY Golf Tournament on Monday, June 4. The event will take place at Glenrochie Country Club in Abingdon. This year, E&H is proud to announce Mod-U-Kraf Homes as the tournament’s title sponsor.

The tournament is held in appreciation of the loyal contributors to the I-HEY fund and to support the operational needs of the athletic department.

The format for the tournament is four-man “best ball” with prizes for the first and second place teams. A $10,000 prize for a hole-in-one is also available. There will be continental breakfast available at the clubhouse before the 9:30 a.m. shotgun start, and lunch will follow the conclusion of the event.

The registration fee is $100 per person with a 100-person limit to the field. Sponsorship opportunities are also available. Hole sponsorships are $250 while Friends of the Tournament sponsorships are $100.

I-HEY is the official fundraising arm of Emory & Henry College’s athletic department. For more than 50 years, alumni and friends have supported athletic programs at E&H by joining I-HEY (I Help Every Year). Contributions help teams purchase equipment and pay for travel to and from competition. Emory & Henry is a member of the NCAA’s Division III, therefore no athletic scholarships are granted to student-athletes. Gifts earmarked to I-HEY or to any one of the Wasps’ 13 intercollegiate athletic teams help young men and women become leaders on the field and court as well as in the classroom.

Call the E&H Athletic Department at 276-944-6233 or email Dana Boyd at dboyd@ehc.edu for more information on how to participate or become a sponsor of this year’s tournament.
