Several of the students who benefit from scholarship funds assisted at the tournament.

Golfer Roger Revelle says he enjoys the event because it is more than just a golf tournament.

“If someone is considering participation next year I would say; come experience a greater purpose for golf,” Revelle said.

Event organizer Todd Garrett, director of development, says the golf classic continues to be an important fundraising opportunity for friends of MNU.

“The opportunity to engage our past, present, and future with our current students, alumni, and community constituency is truly and honor,” Garrett says. “This single day event is a great way to celebrate the hard work and energy of those who have come before us, and to pay it forward for those students who will follow.”
