Dixon Schwabl held its annual DS Open golf tournament on Monday, September 17, to help fund the Janie Argenta’82 Memorial Endowed Scholarship fund at SUNY Geneseo. Each year, deserving students pursuing a career in public relations are selected to receive the scholarship.
The scholarship’s namesake is Jane Argenta, our former VP of public relations. Jane exemplified the very best of our agency and industry. After a battle with cancer, she passed away far too soon. The DS Open honors her gung-ho spirit and supports up-and-coming talent in our field, just as she did.
This year’s tournament raised nearly $15,000 for the fund, with 100 golfers and participants in attendance. To date, the tournament has raised more than $200,000 for the scholarship.
