Friends and members of the ACC community raised more than $30,000 for the college’s Student Emergency Fund at the annual Golf Scramble tournament October 14 at Riverside Golf Course.

A record number of golfers and teams teed up in support of the fund, which helps students facing an emergency continue their education at ACC.
