Every year, usually in June, the our club holds a golf tournament in honor of its namesake, the late Ned R. Fogelsonger, who was a Rotary Club of Shippensburg President, and a great man of service. Proceeds from the event go toward academic and vocational scholarships for graduating SASHS seniors of high academic achievement who demonstrate a financial need and a dedication to service.

Event Information

Ned Fogelsonger was a local business owner (G.Leonard Fogelsonger Agency) and influential member of the Shippensburg Community. During his life he contributed countless hours to the benefit of the greater Shippensburg area and giving back to the community in which he loved.

For those who knew Ned as an insurance agent, friend, husband, and father, we can remember that he always did his best to ensure you had a good laugh or smile after meeting him.

In January 1999 he succumbed to an untimely death, and in his wake a tournament was organized to grant scholarships, in his memory, to graduating seniors of the Shippensburg Area School District.

The first tournament was held in June of 1999 at the Chambersburg Country Club. In the first year the club awarded one academic and one vocational scholarship. In 2000, an additional academic scholarship was added bringing the total scholarships to two academic and one vocational.

Almost 20 years later, the event has raised thousands of dollars for dozens of exceptional students in our area who want to continue their education after high school, and it will continue to do so for years to come.

This website will be updated with information for the 2018 event when it becomes available. Until then, here is some sample information from a past event.
