ECC Foundation Golf Tournament
This tournament is a major fundraiser for the Foundation. The tournament, played at Maccripine Country Club in Pinetops, is one of eastern North Carolina’s most popular golf events and features morning and afternoon flights. Recent tournaments have netted about $20,000, which is used to fund student scholarships. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the 2020 golf tournament scheduled for October 8 was postponed and will be held on April 22, 2021.
Scholarship Awards Ceremony
Scholarships are awarded to students at a Scholarship Awards Ceremony held in the Mobley Atrium of the Fleming Building on the College’s Tarboro campus. This ceremony is open to family and friends of the scholarship recipients.
Each year, donors of $250 or more are treated to an elegant party at a private home to thank them for their generous support of the Foundation.
Tackle the Tar
The Rocky Mount Rotary Club hosts a Tackle the Tar mud run and fun day at the Sports Complex in Rocky Mount. The Foundation is a proud supporter of this event. Proceeds from Tackle the Tar are used to fund scholarships awarded by the College. The 2021 Tackle the Tar event was cancelled due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
