PAGA Donation 1

The Brazoria County chapter of the Pan American Golf Association (PAGA) and one of its members recently presented two gifts worth a combined $1,500 to the Brazosport College Foundation. The gifts included a $500 check from the Brazoria County PAGA, along with a $1,000 gift from PAGA member Bill Wynn, who donated $1,000 to the College after winning a hole-in-one pot during the recent PAGA Invitational golf tournament.

The Brazoria County chapter of the Pan American Golf Association (PAGA) and one of its members recently presented two gifts worth a combined $1,500 to the Brazosport College Foundation.

Among the gifts was a $500 check from the Brazoria County PAGA, which is a donation the organization has made to the College every semester for more than 15 years.

The second check was a one-time, $1,000 gift that came from a rare and impressive feat — a golfing hole-in-one.

During the recent Brazoria County PAGA Invitational at Freeport Municipal Golf Course, PAGA member Bill Wynn aced the 14th hole to win the tournament’s hole-in-one pot, which had accumulated to more than $3,500.

Rather than keep all the winnings for himself, Wynn generously donated $1,000 to the BC Foundation through the Brazoria County PAGA chapter. Wynn’s donation, combined with the PAGA’s $500 gift, brought the sum to $1,500.

The gifts made by the PAGA are used to assist students in the purchasing of textbooks.
