Donor golfers chip in $50,000
for Manchester College athletics
A field of more than 30 generous foursomes raised more than $50,000 for Manchester College’s Division III athletics programs on June 10 at Bridgewater East Golf Club in Auburn.
The annual outing of alumni golfers and friends has raised more than $1 million through the years, funding sports equipment, bleachers and press boxes for Manchester College’s 19 NCAA intercollegiate sports.
Most of the funds from the 2011 golf outing will help with summer projects, from new soccer goals and shelters to arena lights, a walkway and renovations to the “Block House” refreshment stand and restrooms, said Jeremy Markham, assistant football coach. Markham coordinates the event with Alumni Director Gary Montel.
