Record Amount Raised for DPI College Scholarships

This month's Delmarva Poultry Industry, Inc. College Scholarship Golf Tournament at Green Hill Country Club near Salisbury, Maryland raised a record high amount, nearly $11,000 to help Delmarva college students interested in a career in Delmarva's chicken industry.

Our net proceeds were more than 50% higher than last year, even though the value of our team and individual prizes was triple last year.

We had 141 golfers enrolled. It was a great turnout!
