31st Scholarship Swing tops $40,000
The UNO Alumni Association hosted the UNO Chancellor’s Scholarship Swing Monday, Sept. 12, at Tiburon Golf Club, netting $47,000 in its largest single fundraising event of the year.
The association now has raised more than $730,000 since it began hosting the Swing 16 years ago. Almost 130 golfers and 62 sponsors participated in the tournament. The money raised supports various association-sponsored student scholarships.
“The Alumni Association is touching lives and preparing students for the future,” UNO Chancellor John Christensen said.
“Special kudos to the coordinating committee. An event of this scope requires months of diligent planning and effort — and they make it look easy.”
UNO graduates David Craft (’90, ’92) and Blake Edwards (’90, ’99) chaired the committee that oversees the tournament’s organization.
