Events

The Gulf Coast State College Foundation hosts two signature event fundraisers each year. These events help build support for Gulf Coast State College students and programs. Our events are open to the public and in all cases require event registration and donations.

Annual Golf Tournament held at The Sharks Tooth Golf Club. This fall event is held at the private Sharks Tooth Gulf Club and hosts over 200 golfers each year. There is a pairings party the night before the tournament. In the past, the proceeds from the golf tournament have provided support for first generation students and military students attending Gulf Coast State College.
