On Monday, September 9, 2013, The R.W. Sorrell Scholarship Fund, a local fund started by former Urban League of Philadelphia president, Robert W. Sorrell, will host its Second Annual Golf Outing, at Glen Mills Golf Course, in Glen Mills, PA, where more than 50 business professionals and community leaders, including, Michael Rashid, CEO, AmeriHealth Caritas, and Arthur Fennell, Emmy-award winning news anchor, Comcast Sports Philly, are expected to attend and participate in the daylong "shamble" tournament, which combines elements of a scramble and traditional golf.
Since 2012, the golf outing has served as a fundraiser for The R.W. Sorrell Scholarship Fund, which, annually, awards two Philadelphia-area high school seniors with scholarships towards a college education. This year's recipients were Chase Roberts and Jazmin Jervis, who will begin their freshman years at Hampton University, in Hampton, VA, and Spelman College, in Atlanta, GA, respectively, this fall. Both students received an $8,000 scholarship, which is to be granted, in $2,000 increments, over a four-year period, in addition, to a paid summer internship with Independence Blue Cross.
The R.W. Sorrell Scholarship Fund is a 501-C(3) tax-exempt organization that is uniquely structured to provide college/university funding for high-performing minority students, who have also demonstrated a commitment to giving back to others through community service activities.
This year's golf outing is sponsored, in part, by Independence Blue Cross, AmeriHealth Caritas, Elliot Lewis, Inc., M & T Bank, PRWT Services, Inc., and Greater Philadelphia Health Action, Inc.
