Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary (SEBTS) celebrated a record-breaking year of fundraising, sponsorship and participation at this year’s 12th annual Southeastern Classic Golf Tournament, hosted at TPC Wakefield Plantation in Raleigh, North Carolina on Oct. 8.

This year’s tournament raised $85,000, earning $27,000 more than the $58,000 average of the previous 11 years of the Southeastern Classic.

“The Southeastern Classic is a great opportunity for supporters of Southeastern’s mission to invest in our student body and to come alongside of us to ensure affordable tuition for the highest-quality theological education in America,” said Jonathan Six, director of Financial and Alumni Development at SEBTS. “I cannot thank our sponsors and participants enough for supporting the future ministries of our soon-to-be graduates.”

All money raised goes toward The Southeastern Fund, which plays a vital role in the life of every student enrolled at the school as each dollar given helps to provide funding for school operations and alleviates tuition costs.

This year’s Southeastern Classic had its highest amount of involvement yet, with 80 sponsors, 40 teams and 160 registered players. For the first year in its history, the SEBTS tournament was divided between a morning flight at 8:30 and an afternoon flight at 2:00 due to the high level of participation.

Crenshaw Consulting Engineers was the 2018 Title Sponsor for this year’s tournament, along with LifeWay Christian Resources as the 2018 Flight Sponsor.
