graphic for Blugold BeginningsEAU CLAIRE — A golf outing fundraiser organized by the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire will be held June 28 at the Eau Claire Golf & Country Club. The event will begin with lunch and registration at 11:30 a.m. Proceeds from the golf outing will support the Blugold Beginnings program, which provides scholarships, learning materials and mentoring for area students in grades 5-12.

Participants can pay $140 for a single player or $700 for a five-player team. The fee covers 18 holes of golf with cart, lunch, gift, prizes, silent auction and dinner. An optional skins game costs $20 per person.

The purpose of the Blugold Beginnings program is to educate and inspire students, especially underrepresented, low income or would-be first generation college students, to believe that a postsecondary education is important, attainable and available at UW-Eau Claire and other institutions, according to Blugold Beginnings program coordinator Lissa Martinez.

For more information or to register for the golf outing, contact Martinez at martinjl@uwec.edu or 715-836-3651 or visit the golf outing page on the Blugold Beginnings website to download the registration form.
