Our club’s primary community service project is the Scholarship Program, which grants deserving high school seniors of Chinese descent monetary awards for college. This program is funded by the club golf tournament, as well as generous donations from club members and local businesses. Each year there are very impressive applicants and this year is no exception. We invite you to join with us in congratulating their academic and community service excellence at our annual Scholarship Award Banquet.
