• Rick Barton Scholarship Golf Tournament


    Thank you for your interest in participating in the 2015 Rick Barton Scholarship Tournament. With your help we’ve filled all our available slots for the tournament and registration is now closed. If you care to donate to the Veterans Scholarship Fund, please send a check to the Veterans Business Council with memo ‘Scholarship Fund’ to Veterans Business Council PO Box 11 Webster, NY 14580. Thank you for your support!

    Rick Barton was the former VP of the Veterans Business Council, Air Force Veteran, Gates Police officer and president of COP Security. Rick sadly passed away from cancer in his fifties. This tournament was set up in his name, through the Veterans Business Council, to raise scholarship money for veterans seeking a degree in criminal justice or the security fields.

    Last year we raised over $22,000 and helped 7 veterans with scholarships at MCC. This year our goal is to help ten more. MCC has over 900 veterans registered as students and some are really struggling financially to complete their degree. We thank you for your support and we look forward to a great day with golf and friends.

    The golf tournament will take place on September 26th 2015 at 1pm at Timber Ridge Golf Club (map) with dinner to follow at the American Legion a short drive away (map)

    100% of the proceeds from golf registrations, sponsorships, and dinner go directly to scholarships. Click here for the tournament rules.

    Even if you don’t golf or can’t attend, please consider making a donation (using the additional donation field in the form below) to help support our veteran students and fund the scholarships.
