Our 2022 Scholarship Scramble at Allendale Country Club was a fantastic success! We would like to thank Allendale Country Club for their help in making the day a memorable one. We would also like to thank the businesses and organizations that helped sponsor the event such as Fiber Optic Center, Southcoast EMS & STAT Dartmouth EMS, Dartmouth Building Supply, Axis Advisors, LLC, College Edge, Southcoast Financial Partners, John & Yvette Nunes, and The Jansen Family. We’d also like to thank everyone who donated a prize for our raffle, including Saraiva Enterprises, Inc for their generous prize donation for our top 3 teams. Finally, a HUGE thank you to all the volunteers who helped set the event up and helped make everything run smoothly. We’ll see you all again next year!!! (: Corey M. Ferreira)
