Thank you to those who attended the 2016 Evans Cup of Washington at TPC Snoqualmie Ridge on Monday, September 26, and the Evans Cup of Oregon at beautiful Waverley Country Club on Monday, August 29. It was wonderful to spend the days with so many close supporters of the Evans Scholars Program in the Northwest, and your generosity helped set a record for funds raised from this event.
This year’s events set a record for funds raised in support of the Evans Scholars Foundation, helping to give more young men and women caddies the life-changing gift of a college education.
This is an exciting time for the Evans Scholars Foundation. This fall, there are a record 935 Evans Scholars enrolled in 20 leading universities nationwide. Thanks to your great support, the program is well on its way to achieving its goal of having at least 1,000 Evans Scholars in school, living together in-community, each year by 2020.
And this is an especially exciting time for the Evans Scholars Program in the state of Oregon. We are thrilled to announce that the Evans Scholars are living together in a Scholarship House at the University of Oregon for the first time ever this fall. The concept of community living is a pillar of the Evans Scholars Program and is one of the key reasons for our cumulative GPA of 3.2 and 95 percent graduation rate.
The ongoing support will be critical as the program continues to grow in Washington. The foundation has been working hard to establish a Scholarship House at the University of Washington, and they are very close to making that dream a reality. Evans Scholars maintain a cumulative 3.2 GPA and a 95 percent graduation rate. These deserving young men and women are taking full advantage of the opportunity they have been given, and everyone is excited to soon be offering community living to Evans Scholars at the University of Washington for the first time.
The Evans Cups help ensure that deserving caddies with financial need aren’t being left behind.
Thank you again for supporting the Evans Scholars Foundation.
