CLAREMONT, N.H. – July 25, 2018 – Red River, a technology transformation company, hosted its 12th Annual Charity Golf Classic at the Quechee Club in Vermont on July 19. The yearly tournament is the primary fundraiser for the Red River Charitable Foundation (RRCF), Red River’s non‐profit 501 (c)(3) charitable organization.
“This marks the 10th consecutive year of our scholarship program,” said Kim Vacca, Director of the Red River Charitable Foundation. “Since 2008 we have been able to award $151,000 to 48 high school seniors pursuing majors in STEM fields. Those numbers are pretty remarkable, and we can’t wait to see what these students will accomplish.”
RRCF provides opportunities for students in middle school through college interested in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) fields with scholarships, internships, mentoring and donations of IT equipment. The organization also supports causes that help U.S. military veterans transitioning to civilian life.
RRCF’s scholarship recipients completed a lengthy application process and received monetary awards for their college tuition and books, as well as Dell laptops and printers. The students and their families were the guests of honor at this year’s event.
