Emeril Golf Classic

Golf fore  JWU

Born out of Chef Emeril Lagasse’s commitment to give back to his alma mater, the annual Emeril Lagasse Golf Classic is a unique event benefiting the renowned chef’s endowed scholarship fund.

The Emeril Lagasse Endowed Scholarship Fund supports a major aspect of JWU’s latest strategic initiative, 2017: The Centennial Plan — namely, to make education more affordable for students.

In it’s 11th year, the tournament’s sponsors and donors managed to bring the total of scholarship funds raised to more than $5 million!

“Having Emeril work with all of us on this event helps to strengthen our mission of providing students with a quality — and affordable ― career education experience, and for that we’re extremely grateful,” said Chancellor John J. Bowen.
