Plans for the Kellogg Community College Foundation 2014 Bruin Scholarship Open are in full swing, with 60 teams and nearly 100 sponsors scheduled to be represented at Binder Park Golf Course during the fundraiser tournament on Sept. 5.

Over the past 16 years, the Bruin Open has raised more than $700,000 for student scholarships. This year’s event is highlighted by the establishment of the Bruin Champion sponsor level thanks to the generosity of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers 445, Current Electric Inc., Motor Shop Electrical Construction and Union Electric Inc. The Local Management Cooperative Committee and its employer members annually give to this event and this year’s gift of $7,500 represents the largest-ever donation to the Open.
