Valley Forge Christian College is pleased to celebrate the 12th Anniversary of the Patriot Classic Golf Tournament. For the past 12 years, golfers, churches, organizations and businesses have come together to raise over $80,000 in scholarships for deserving VFCC students.

As the Patriot Classic tradition continues, so does the eternal impact of your gift. Each registration and sponsorship does not just pay for a round of golf or an awards dinner; it is a significant investment into the lives of students who will, in a few short years, make a lasting difference in our communities.
