NWIC’s big athletics fundraiser tees off soon

On Friday September 14, 2012 Northwest Indian College (NWIC) Foundation will host the 10th Annual Big Drive for Education Golf Scramble, the college’s biggest annual athletics fundraiser that supports student athletes and athletic programs.

The scramble will begin with a 1 p.m. shotgun start, in which all golfers tee off at different holes at the same time. The event will be held at the North Bellingham Golf Course.

Last year’s event garnered more than $17,000 and this year’s goal is to raise $25,000. The Golf Scramble provides financial resources, such as athletic scholarships, for NWIC student athletes, and supports the development of the college’s health and fitness programs.

NWIC sports include: women’s volleyball, men’s basketball, women’s basketball, co-ed softball, cross country, canoeing, tennis, and golf.

Registration rates are $800 for teams of four golfers or $200 for individual registrants who would like to be place on teams. Costs include registration, carts, green fees, range balls, dinner and raffle tickets.
