The 27th annual Anthony S. Santaro AGC Scholarship Classic was held Sept. 20 at the Turning Stone Resort and Casino, in Verona, N.Y. The proceeds from the golf outing benefit the AGC Scholarship Fund, which was established in 1988 to provide financial assistance to college students who have an interest in pursuing a career in New York State's construction industry. Since its conception more than $1 million in scholarships have been granted, maintaining the funds status as the largest state industry effort of its kind.

This year the scholarship fund received 57 applications for the scholarship program. Twenty-four scholarships were awarded worth $62,000.
