MOUNT VERNON— On Friday, April 1, 2022, Brewton-Parker College (BPC) hosted their 5th Annual Southern Classic Golf Tournament presented by Metter Ford at the Willow Lake Golf Club in Metter, Georgia. Through the generous support of business sponsors and local teams, the event raised over $30,000. These funds will be used to transform the lives of the students academically and spiritually.
Nineteen teams competed in this year’s Southern Classic. This year’s turnout is the biggest so far, thanks to the generous support of local businesses and support from the faculty, staff, and students of BPC.
The Southern Classic serves as a fundraiser for the college. Twenty-six community businesses supported BPC through various sponsorship levels. Bank of Soperton’s team placed first, followed by The City of Mount Vernon’s team in second with Team Handy Andy in third.
