"Fundraising is a top priority for the USC Sumter Athletics Department," said Director of Athletics Adrienne Cataldo. "The funds raised help each of our programs toward their season goals. Events like this golf tournament not only help fund things like officials, equipment, transportation, and travel to district and national championships, but it also helps us support the community through the hundreds of service hours our athletes perform every year."
