Thursday night members of the UT Tyler Patriot organization, Patriot Classic Committee and sponsors presented a check to UT Tyler towards the general scholarship fund.

UT Tyler Patriots team up each year to host the Million Dollar Hole-in-One competition to raise money for scholarships that go to students at UT Tyler. Working hand in hand with the Patriot organization the Patriot Classic committee host a golf tournament annually that also contributes to the fund.

The two groups work side by side with sponsors and volunteers raising funds that contribute to the great education that students receive on campus at UT Tyler. The check presented to Dr. Rod Mabry tonight was worth over $160,000 dollars. The combined funds raised in 2015 puts the total amount raised over $2 million.

Work has already begun planning the 2016 events, and Patriots and Patriot Classic members are eager to raise more.
