Funds raised for the scholarship program are made possible through the generous support of local businesses. These businesses actively participate in or sponsor the annual Torigian Golf Classic, a premier event in our community, co-hosted by the Peabody Area Chamber and Rotary Club of Peabody. This year, the Torigian Golf Classic is scheduled to take place on June 10th at the picturesque Meadow in Peabody. The success of this event not only fosters a sense of camaraderie among local businesses but also directly contributes to the scholarship fund, enabling us to provide meaningful financial support to develop our future workforce.
