Swinging For Scholars

"Swinging for Scholars" 2022 - To find out more information about this year's outing at Union League Liberty Hill on Monday, August 22nd click HERE

Since 1995, the Greater Philadelphia chapter has provided scholarship funds to recognize and support local university students studying in related fields such as accounting, business, finance, hospitality, technology or management. Our annual Swinging for Scholars golf outing is an actively and generously supported event by which our chapter raises the funds needed towards this initiative.

Students from Penn State UniversityThe University of Delaware and Temple University have been past beneficiaries, with some recipients having since gone on to successful careers here in the immediate Greater Philadephia chapter region.

The awards are presented annually at a function sponsored by the chapter.

Last July, we hosted the 25th annual HFTP “Swinging for Scholars Golf” outing at Tavistock Country Club. It was another successful year, having raised over $11,000 thanks to the sponsors, golfers and dinner only attendees. These proceeds directly benefited the scholarship fund, which awards scholarships to deserving Hospitality Management, Finance or Technology students in November of each year.    We also raised money through our 50/50 drawing and donated the proceeds in memory of our fellow chapter member John Stuzynski who passed away last month.  

Our annual Scholarship Awards Dinner was held
