VERO BEACH – One hundred golfers participated in the 33rd annual Kiwanis Scholarship Golf Tournament held this past January 26 at Pointe West. According to event chairman, Matt Hamilton, “It was a great success! This is our most important fundraising event of the year and 100% of the revenues go towards scholarships for deserving Indian River County high school seniors. We want to give a special thanks to Club Pro, Steve Lupcho and Pointe West’s event coordinator, Russell Van Wyk, for all their efforts making the tournament go off without a hitch. We also want to give a shout out to the more than 50 individuals and businesses who contributed sponsorships and prizes.”
