Portage College raised over $1,600 during two golf tournaments on the same week in September to support two different fundraising campaigns. St. Paul Chamber of Commerce Tournament welcomed Portage to raise funds toward First Year Culinary Arts Scholarship while Resource One Aboriginal Business Association (ROABA) welcomed Portage to raise funds for the Lac La Biche Campus Indigenous Cultural Space.
The St. Paul Chamber of Commerce hosted the golf tournament on September 3 to celebrate hometown businesses with the tournament’s proceeds going towards developing new programs for their members. Portage College volunteers from the Hospitality Program put on a raffle and raised $605 for the Culinary Arts Program. In particular is was a scholarship that the Culinary Arts second year students had set up to support the first-year students of the same program.
ROABA is a non-profit organization that consists of Aboriginal businesses. They commit to networking, enhancing industry communication and promoting business to help the people in the region. They had their 7th annual golf tournament on September 2 where Portage College held a raffle and raised $1,085 for the new Indigenous Cultural Space at the Lac La Biche campus.
Rick Flumian, Community Relations Manager said, “I cannot thank these two community partners enough for giving Portage College the opportunity to be part of their great events with the opportunity to promote two College initiatives and raise money for them. It is community partners like these that helps Portage College be successful.”
