The first annual Corey Ingram Memorial Golf Tournament will be held on Saturday, July 21 at 10 am. The tournament will be played at College Hill Golf Course at 149 North Clinton Street in Poughkeepsie, followed by a barbecue at Vail Wolff McKenna Frye VFW Post 170, 1 Violet Avenue in Poughkeepsie.

Last August, 28 year old U.S. Navy technician Corey Ingram was killed after the ship in which he was traveling, the USS John McCain, collided with a 600-pound tanker off the coast of Malaysia. Corey was a City of Poughkeepsie resident who was dedicated to his family, his community, and his country. A scholarship fund has been started in Corey's name to honor him and help keep his memory alive. The scholarship will be awarded to Poughkeepsie High School Seniors.

All proceeds from the golf tournament will benefit the Corey Ingram Scholarship Fund. All donations will be gratefully accepted. For more information about the tournament, visit their facebook page.
