Golf lovers and supporters of Weatherford College enjoyed a gorgeous day at Canyon West Thursday at the 14th annual WC Foundation Golf Tournament.
More than $25,000 was raised through the fundraiser. Coupled with the matching program from a federal Title III grant, this event will bring in more than $50,000 to support WC and its students.

Additionally, many participants left with door prizes and raffle items including three shotguns, a 40-inch HDTV, a Dell tablet, Beats headphones and more.
