Dear Foundation Supporters,
On behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to extend my sincere appreciation and thanks for your support of the 15th Annual Rev. Dr. A. W. Watkins Scholarship Charity Golf Tournament. This year's tournament was played on the Legislator Course of the Capitol Hill Golf Club, Prattville, Alabama. The tournament was a total success due the the numerous sponsors, donors, golf participants (84), which was the largest number of golfers in the history of the foundation. We were happy to have Senator Bobby Singleton, Attorney Theron Stokes and Oliver Robinson to play in the tournament this year. Want to especially, thank all the volunteers for providing their support of the tournament. Additionally, there were 19 of the 27 scholarship recipients present. Because of the level of participation and generosity of many, the Foundation was able to invest a total of $30,500.00 to assist 27 aspiring students through scholarships. Since, 2005 the Foundation has awarded $209,100.00 in scholarships to 200 deserving students.
Your investment towards the Foundation's efforts is allowing 27 aspiring students to continue their educational endeavors at an institution of higher learning. Again, I want to personally thank you for investing in our Nation's future, which is our youth. The 2022 scholarship recipients are our future leaders.
As a friendly reminder, the Rev. Dr. A. W. Watkins Scholarship Foundation is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization. Therefore, your golf entry fees, sponsorship and donations are tax deductible for 2022. One hundred percent (100%) of your donation goes to the Foundation for scholarships.
