In a last-minute change of venue due to damage to the Quogue Field Club course caused by that nasty Tropical Storm Irene, the Quogue School Scholarship Committee will host the fifth annual golf outing to benefit the school’s Scholarship Fund at Hampton Hills Country Club on Friday, September 23.
In addition to the two scholarships that have traditionally been offered to deserving Quogue students to help them pay for their college education, the committee is adding a third for students who attended Quogue School for at least three years, to be awarded based on a student’s service to the community.
Golf registration is scheduled for 12:30 at Hampton Hills on Friday, with tee-off slated for 1 p.m. Cocktail hour starts at 6 and dinner follows. Cost is $125 for golf only; $75 for dinner only; or $175 for golf and dinner. Make checks payable to Quogue School Scholarship Fund; for more information, call Lauren Battista at 653-5765.
