Scholarship Foundation Conference Activities
Again, this year, the NHCA Scholarship Foundation will host their annual fundraisers - the Silent Auction and Raffle. The Scholarship Foundation uses proceeds to make available scholarships for undergraduate and graduate students. The focus of these scholarships is to help support applied/practical studies such as theses, dissertations or special projects that endeavor to acquire knowledge about ways to prevent noise induced hearing loss in our society. Show your support by providing an item or two for the auction and/or the raffle.
A separate Foundation event registration form will be available in early January 2010 to facilitate registration for specific Foundation events. The information below is offered for travel planning purposes.
Golf Outing - Shingle Creek Golf Club
Wednesday, February 24, 2010
An 18-hole Golf Outing will commence early afternoon at Shingle Creek Golf Club near the Rosen Plaza Hotel. This fund-raising event will be another exciting and fun-filled adventure for golfers and duffers. Box lunches will be provided for the attendees. Watch for more information as we get closer to the conference but plan to arrive early for a relaxing, sometimes laughable outing on the Florida greens.
