2017 Evans Cup of Oregon Raises Funds for Evans Scholars Foundation
PORTLAND, ORE. - The 2017 Evans Cup of Oregon was held Monday, August 28th at Portland Golf Club in Portland, Ore., which helped raise funds for the Oregon Chapter of the Evans Scholars Foundation.
The event is a premier fundraiser for the Evans Scholars Foundation, specifically the University of Oregon Evans Scholars. The UO chapter recently opened its very own Scholarship House in 2016, located just off campus, that houses all 30+ scholars.
Scholarship recipients must be nominated by their club and meet four qualifications: Strong caddie record, excellent academics, demonstrated financial need, and outstanding character. The Oregon Golf Association donated over $40,000 to the Scholars Foundation in 2016, as part of OGA member dues goes to support the foundation.
