A TOTAL of 14 million pesos was raised for Thomasian athletes at the second Rector’s Cup, UST’s alumni golf competition at the Santa Elena Golf and Country Club Monday.
The fundraiser doubled last year’s earnings with 194 participants. The amount collected would be given to the athletes as subsidy.
“We are here to support them and at the same time help them in whatever way that we can,” Office of Alumni Relations (OAR) director Cherry Tanodra told the Varsitarian.
Tanodra added that the OAR is planning to make next year’s tournament a two-day event due to the drastic increase in the number of alumni joining the event.
Last year, the event attracted 108 participants.
Alumni from the College of Architecture won first place this year while graduates of the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery nabbed silver.
