“Chip-in for Education” Golf Classic


save the date




























Welcome, and thanks for visiting “Chip-in” for Education. Raising funds is always difficult, but especially so when it comes to dollars for scholarship awards. To help raise these funds, FCEF holds an annual golf tournament. Our 8th annual golf tournament took place on September 17, 2015, at The Golf Club at Fossil Creek. Among the 142 golfers were 4 sponsored military teams from Naval Air Station Fort Worth Joint Reserve Base (former Carswell AFB). We were fortunate again with the weather; the beautiful day was enjoyed by all participants. Even better, the event cleared $43,000 ($230,000 total since 2008) for scholarship awards. Our 9th annual tournament will take place Friday, September 30, 2016, also at The Golf Club at Fossil Creek.  We invite you to join us for this worthwhile occasion as a golfer, a sponsor, a volunteer, or a donor.

The “Chip-in” for Education Golf Classic could not exist without our volunteers’ hard work before the tournament, at the registration table, on the holes during the tournament, at the awards dinner, and in many other areas.
