Thanks to the help of countless volunteers and Appalachian State University Risk Management and Insurance (RMI) students, more than 165 golfers, and the financial investment of more than 50 industry sponsors, the 2016 AppState Brantley Center – Liberty Mutual Invitational Golf Tournament was a tremendous success.

The event was held June 7 at the Country Club of Whispering Pines in Carthage, NC.

"Final dollar totals are still coming in, but thanks to the record number of golfers, and our very generous sponsor organizations, we expect the 2016 golf tournament to generate more than $25,000 for Appalachian's Brantley Risk and Insurance Center and our RMI students," said Dr. Karen Epermanis, Director of the Brantley Center. "A big 'Thank you!' to our Brantley Center Board and volunteers for their involvement, especially to Golf Tournament Committee Chair Andy Patton of Patton Insurance Agency for coordinating such a fantastic event."
