Trying to get money any way I can to advance my education and be the first in my family to go to college.

My mom and dad divorced when I was in the 7th grade. One of the agreements in the divorce was that my dad would pay significantly less than the normal amount for child support. Part of that agreement was that the difference in what he should have paid and actually paid in child support was to go into a college funding account for my sister and I. He has failed to do so, and now I am being told I have absolutely no savings to pay for college, and neither does my sister.

Nobody in my family has ever been to college after high school. My mom, whom is in her 40s, just completed online school and got a degree in business. I want to make her, and my whole family, proud by being the first to go from high school to an actual college.

I am the Varsity captain of the golf team at my school, so I hope to get an athletic scholarship through the program.
The problem is, a scholarship won't cover everything.

Bottom line: I can't go if I can't pay.
That's where this fundraiser comes in. I hate asking others for money, especially for something like this, but I'm running out of options at this point.
If this ends up raising a significant amount of money and I have extra left over after paying tuition and living fees at college, the rest will go into a savings account for my little sister, going into grade 10 in high school, to get into college as well.
