Scholarship Winter Golf Outing
Make plans to be part of the first ONU Scholarship Winter Golf Outing, March 14 and 15 at the Golf Club of the Everglades in Naples, Fla.
Tom Stevick, vice president of university advancement, said “Thanks to the support of Clyde, BSEd ’61, H of F ’83, and Pearl (Myers) Quinby, AA ’61, 100 percent of your golf fees will go to scholarships at ONU.”
Scholarships are an important part of making an ONU education possible to more students. Stevick said, “More than 80 percent of ONU students receive some form of financial aid every year, yet most still graduate with significant debt. Scholarship support enables students to pursue their dreams of a top-tier ONU education.”
The golf outing begins with a gala cocktail reception and auction at the Golf Club of the Everglades at 6 p.m., Sunday, March 14. Golfing begins Monday, March 15, with a shotgun start at 9 a.m., followed by an awards luncheon. The event is a best two balls out of four with registration limited to the first 100 paid golfers.
Prizes will be presented to the top finishers, closest to the pin, longest drive and putting contest.
Sponsor packages are also available.
