Claremont, NH – July 22, 2015 – Red River, a leading provider of IT solutions to the US public sector and commercial clients, has just completed its 9th Annual Charity Golf Classic at The Quechee Club on July 16.

Whether it’s providing scholarships, internships, mentoring or IT equipment donations, the annual event helps to fund the bulk of RRCF’s philanthropic efforts. The tournament also allows RRCF to recognize the scholarship recipients and their families. The 2015 RRCF scholarship recipients were:

Dan McGee, Red River’s Sr. Vice President of Operations, spoke for the event and congratulated all of the students. “It’s always a pleasure to meet with the students and talk with them and their families. The accomplishments and career goals of these students is impressive. This year’s scholarship recipients came from four different high schools and all share an incredible passion for higher learning in STEM related fields.”
Along with monetary awards from RRCF, these students took home new laptops and printers, generously donated by Dell, to give them a head start in their collegiate studies.
Dot Sheehan Founder of Operation Hat Trick, a partner with RRCF added the following “I want to thank Red River for their invitation to and hospitality at their annual golf tournament to benefit their Foundation. They have made a commitment to education and veterans and have proven that they not only talk about both, they actually initiate and develop creative ways to support students studying STEM programs and veteran’s needs. Operation Hat Trick is honored to be part partnered with Red River and know that together we make a difference.”
Rick Bolduc, Red River CEO said “This marks the 9th year since we began the Foundation’s charity golf event and we couldn’t be more pleased with the turn out. The exceptional generosity put forth from all of our partners and local businesses has provided these high school students with the means and equipment to follow their academic goals in college.
