The Ocean City Board of Realtors announces the awarding of two college scholarships and sponsorship of scholastic programs with funds raised at the Spring Golf Event at the Greate Bay Country Club, on Thursday, May 8.

Two recent high school graduates were the recipients each of a $1,000 scholarship: Jesse Briglia, graduate of St. Augustine’s Preparatory School, and Jake Cassidy, graduate of Ocean City High School. In addition to awarding the scholarships, the Ocean City Board of REALTORS allocated funds to the After Prom Event at Ocean City High School and is a sign sponsor for the Ocean City High School Baseball Boosters. Additional funds are earmarked for future scholastic programs.

Unique to this spring tournament was the opportunity to sponsor a Commemorative Pin Flag that honors graduates of Ocean City High School. The Commemorative Flag was personalized with the graduate’s name and year of graduation and sponsors were able to take the pin flag home as a memorial. Local business showed their support by purchasing hole sign sponsorships.

The 2013 Spring Golf Event funded three college scholarships and allowed for the sponsoring of school programs such as the After Prom Event and the Baseball Booster Club.

“The Ocean City Board of Realtors would like to express its appreciation for the generosity of the many sponsors of the golf event:  local businesses, organizations, Ocean City Realtors and family & friends of the local high schools, who all joined together to help raise funds to sponsor the scholarships and scholastic programs of our local students” said Damon Bready, chairman of the Fundraising Committee.
