The HFTP Greater Philadelphia’s 26th Annual “Swinging for Scholars” Golf Outing is quickly approaching. This year’s event will take place at an exciting new location - the magnificent Union League Liberty Hill Lafayette Hill, PA on Monday, August 22, 2022.

In the past ten years, the tournament has raised over $85,000.  These proceeds directly benefited the scholarship fund, which awards scholarships to deserving college students from Penn State, Temple and University of Delaware, majoring in Hospitality Management, Finance or Technology. Our continued success can only be realized with your help and support!
On behalf of HFTP, we are asking you to assist us in opening the doors of education for the future of deserving students.  We welcome golfers of all playing levels to come out for a fun afternoon to help ensure a bright future for the hospitality industry.  Please consider sponsoring a hole or donating a prize for our silent auction or raffle. Sponsorship opportunities are listed on the attached registration form.  Possible prize donations include rounds of golf, sportswear, gift certificates (particularly brunches or dinners), tickets to sports or cultural events, or anything you can donate that will also promote your property or business!
If you would like to secure your space, please respond today since this event is limited to the first 36 golfers! If you cannot join us for golf, we encourage you to join us for cocktails and dinner and participate in the silent auction following golf.  It’s always a fabulous night where you can reconnect with friends all in support of a great cause!

THANK YOU for your generous support!

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.
