The Burke Fund is a great fundraiser that has been helping college students since 1946 and encouraging them to pursue an education as well as involving the golfing community of Rhode Island in remembering those who supported them. Over $136,000 was raised last year for Burke Scholarships with the help and tremendous effort of this group. This year’s event is taking place on Monday, October 6th at the Metacomet Country Club, East Providence, Rhode Island. 32 golfers plan to play at least 100 holes of golf to raise funds for the Burke Scholarship Program. For this current academic year, the Fund has committed over $153,000 to 77 students!
