VIU Mariner Athletics Golf Classic 2016
On Tuesday, September 20, 2016, VIU Athleticswill host the 6th annual fundraising tournament at the Nanaimo Golf Club. We are extremely excited to work with our alumni, sponsors and staff to put on an event that benefits current and future VIU athletes. Last year the event raised almost $30,000. Mariner athletes are involved in many community and youth sport activities in the Nanaimo area every year and we are very proud of our legacy of ‘building champions’.
This golf tournament will support VIU Athletics by providing funds for such things as scholarships. We also want to engage our athletes, coaches and staff with our community and business members. We have decided that one way to do so is to have all our athletes act as caddies for participating golfers (120 Caddies/Athletes). Imagine having someone carry your clubs, replace divots, rake traps and maybe even line up a putt for you. This unique opportunity will enable the greater Nanaimo business community to connect with some of the VIU Mariners on a personal basis.
