MOHAVE COUNTY – The Bighorn Athletics Booster Club is excited to announce its first fundraiser called the Bighorn Scramble.
The charity golf tournament will help raise funds to support the tristate region’s first-ever National Junior College Athletic Association, NJCAA, Men’s and Women’s soccer teams that MCC is forming.
The college board and NJCAA recently approved the college plans to create the teams, and recruitment will focus first on players from throughout Mohave County.
“This is exciting news for all of Mohave County,” said Bighorn Booster Club Vice President Steve Moss. “We can now keep our local youth in the community, after they graduate from high school, they can now play a sport they love while completing a college degree.”
The Bighorn Booster Club was created to support MCC collegiate athletics and the student-athletes. The college goal is to have the athletic program be financially self-supporting, and the Bighorn Booster Club is a key part of the plan to help make that happen.
“I am so impressed with the commitment and support we’re seeing by the boosters and so many of our local business, government and industry leaders,” said MCC President Dr. Stacy Klippenstein. “This Bighorn Scramble charity golf tournament is such as great way for our local community members to get involved and show support for the soccer program we’re building.”
The Bighorn Scramble is a Calcutta/Golf Tournament set for Friday and Saturday, June 3rd & 4th.
The fun begins at the Anderson Fieldhouse, Friday evening at 5:30 p.m. with the Calcutta, which is open to sponsors and players.
The charity golf tournament is scheduled for 7:30 a.m., Saturday morning at Laughlin Ranch Golf Course. There are three people to each team, and community members are encouraged to act quickly if they would like to play in the tournament because it is already filling up.
Funds raised will help support the development of the MCC Bighorns Men’s & Women’s Soccer teams.
Some sponsorship packages for the tournament are still available and range from $500 to $5,000.
