That's how much money we raised for scholarships at the seventh annual COPi Cup Invitational Pro-Am Golf Tournament at Pebble Beach. ($223,785 to be perfectly accurate.)
Conceived and sponsored by Legistics, the fundraiser is named after our firm's forerunner, The COPi Companies.
The COPi Cup is a 2-day event celebrating "Camaraderie, Competition and Charity". It was created to fund scholarships for underserved kids who are often the first members of their families to attend college.
This financial assistance is provided by the SCGA Junior Golf Foundation, but eligibility is not about competitive performance or athletic scholarships. Instead, through their involvement with SCGA Junior, these high schoolers become eligible for aid based on their leadership skills, their academic achievement, their committed participation and their mentorship to younger golfers.
Many of our generous participants and matching sponsors have returned every year since we started The COPi Cup in 2013. To date, we've raised over $860,000 and changed the lives of dozens of kids and their families.
For that, we (and they) are truly grateful.
