Specialty Chemicals Magazine Scholarship Golf Outing

Seventh Annual Specialty Chemicals Magazine Scholarship Golf Outing

May 15, 2017 – Manufacturers’ Golf & CC – Fort Washington, PA

The 7th annual scholarship golf outing, which Speciality Chemicals Magazine co-hosts, will be taking place in the Philadelphia  area on 15th May 2017. This worthwhile event attracts top executives and leaders in the fine, specialty and industrial chemical industries, to support university students majoring in chemistry, chemical engineering and related sciences. 

It’s also a great networking opportunity for everyone taking part!

Since our first scholarship golf outing in 2011, we have raised more than $104,000 for university students majoring in chemistry, chemical engineering and related sciences. Our committee is chaired by Ben Jones , president of Century Global LLC, and includes representatives from 20 leaders in industry, including Ampac Fine Chemicals , Amsyn, Brenntag, BMS, Chemours, i-CHESS , Dow, FMC, Global Chemsources,  Johnson Matthey, Notch, Optima , Piramal, Siegfried, TCI, VanDeMark and Vertellus. They choose several  universities each year to receive the sponsorship money raised, and members of that university identify a deserving student who will benefit. 

Last year, for example, thousands were raised and awarded to three universities in the Philadelphia area: Drexel University's Chemistry Department (a junior chemistry major); Temple University's School of Pharmacy (a medicinal chemistry major in the last year of her PhD degree); and Villanova University's Engineering Department (a chemical engineering junior). The last of these is a truly remarkable young man – not just top of his class, this student’s desire to inspire younger students about engineering and science led him to found his own non-profit organization named All Hands-On Science. He created a new service site at a Boys and Girls Club where 8 to 12 All Hands-On Science members have been visiting weekly to present science lessons with integrated activities.  We are delighted that the proceeds from our event went to such a great cause.

Ben Jones, Founder of the Golf Outing and Chairman of the Committee, comments “As far as philanthropic efforts are concerned, this one has got to be the most fun! Plus it gathers together many of the top people from our industry in one place, for a whole day, in a social atmosphere that allows for a great networking opportunity. We play in a scramble format, so no-one gets left behind, but if you can't play and just want to join us for the reception/ dinner that’s fine too.”

This year, the scholarship golf outing takes place at the beautiful Manufacturers' Golf and Country Club in Fort Washington, PA ( a suburb 1/2 hour north of Center City Philadelphia ) on 15th May. If you’re coming along, be sure to take advantage of our early birdie rates! Play for $300 per person ($325 after 14th April), arrange your own foursome for $ 1,200 ( $ 1,300 after April 14 ) or simply join us for the reception/ dinner ($90, or $100 after 14th April).
