Renzi Foodservice Supports SUNY Potsdam Student Scholarships

October 21, 2010


Potsdam, NY - Renzi Foodservice of Watertown, N.Y., recently showed generous support of State University of New York at Potsdam students by helping to raise a record amount in SUNY Potsdam's 22nd Annual Scholarship Golf Classic.

Renzi Foodservice is the longest-running top sponsor for the golf tournament, which was held on Sept. 8 at Potsdam Town and Country Club. The 2010 College event brought in net proceeds of $85,000 this year, breaking all previous records for the golf outing.

More than 200 golfers took to the course at the Potsdam Town and Country Club on Sept. 8 for the fundraising tournament. All proceeds go toward scholarships to help SUNY Potsdam students further their education. In 2009, the College provided 1,171 scholarships to 918 recipients, totaling $2,261,771.

The Scholarship Golf Classic is designed to increase awareness and funding for student scholarships. Support from sponsors is the key to its success year after year. Additional sponsorships are still welcome to help the College fulfill its mission of supporting deserving SUNY Potsdam students, many of whom come from the North Country. Last year, the tournament raised more than $62,000 for SUNY Potsdam student scholarships.

SUNY Potsdam currently enrolls approximately 4,350 undergraduate and graduate students.
