Homecoming Golf Benefit to honor alumnus and golf aficionado

Homecoming Golf Benefit 2019

Hesston College’s annual Homecoming Golf Benefit on Thursday, Sept. 26 at Hesston Golf Park will honor alumnus Floyd Sowers ’71, who organized and managed the annual golf benefit on behalf of Hesston College for six years, combining his passion for support of students with his love for golf.

“Floyd and the entire Sowers family have made so many contributions to Hesston College and cared so deeply for our students, we’re honored to recognize him for years of partnership through one of his favorite pastimes,” said Rachel Swartzendruber Miller, Hesston College vice president of Advancement.

Event information and registration can be found online. The deadline to register is Sept. 23.

Participants will golf in teams of four. Team registrations are welcome, as well as individual registrations. Golf registration is $125 per person and includes green fees, cart, range balls and a prime rib dinner catered by The Water’s Edge restaurant. Hole sponsorships are also available starting at $200.

Thanks to sponsors, including Garber Surveying Service, 100 percent of proceeds will benefit the Hesston College Annual Fund, which supports all aspects of the student experience.

Sowers and his wife, Bonnie, along with other family members plan to be at the event for the honor and to interact with friends and golfers.
