August 2, 2019, Beaufort, S.C. – Celebrating a 26-year giving history, The Hospital Auxiliary recently gave a generous donation to support scholarships for Technical College of the Lowcountry students pursuing degrees in Health Sciences.
At a July 22 presentation and recognition event, the Auxiliary presented a $20,000 check to the TCL Foundation.
The Auxiliary raises funds for scholarship through its annual fundraising golf tournament. This year, Tournament Gold-level Sponsors Coca Cola, Kroger, Hargray, Bezilla Kinney, Hilton Head Regional HealthCare, PGA Tour Superstore, ORFIKS and Hilton Head BMW dedicated their sponsorship funds to TCL Scholarship.
“The Auxiliary’s investment is well placed. It’s clear the Auxiliary understands the importance of encouraging students in the health sciences,” TCL President Dr. Richard Gough said.
Over more than 25 years, the Auxiliary has given TCL nearly $500,000 in health sciences scholarships to support students in Nursing, Radiologic Technology, Physical Therapy Assisting and Surgical Technology programs.
The Hospital Auxiliary and its volunteers have contributed thousands of hours in support of hospital and community needs and, among its many philanthropies, provides scholarships for students in the Lowcountry entering the healthcare field.
