Your continued support helps to maintain our momentum as a world-class dairy science program. To continue to achieve our goals, we are hosting the 16th annual Hokie Cow Classic Golf Tournament fundraiser on May 14th at the Blacksburg Country Club. We have three goals for this year’s event:

  1.  Continue to attract and retain the best students possible by generating $10,000 plus for scholarships
  2.  Enhance support for undergraduate and 4-H teams and educational activities
  3. Make this year’s tournament bigger and better than last year’s!

Thanks to many of you, last year’s fundraiser provided over $11,000 that directly supported scholarships and departmental activities.  As we plan for the 16th year, we’re hoping for an even bigger and better event. We invite you to join in the fun!
