About Our Cause

All proceeds from this golf tournament will benefit students and provide scholarships at the Berkshire Institute for Christian Studies (BICS). BICS is a one-year educational program for young adults located in Lenox, MA. For more than 35 years, BICS has served over 400 students – seeking to equip them with a biblical worldview. 

Because our students cannot receive federal financial aid, they rely heavily on assistance through our Founders Scholarship and our DiscipleBuilder Scholarship Fund. The proceeds of this tournament will help to provide much-needed financial assistance to our students. 

If you have any questions about our program, please do not hesitate to contact us via email or phone (413-637-4673).
