Event description


WDMCS Student Scholarship Fund is hosting its 25th Annual 'Tee Up Fore Tigers' golf outing on Thursday, June 15th, 2017, at Waveland Golf Course!!

Rising costs are closing doors to higher education for many individuals in our community. Through the WDMCS Scholarship Fund, we have an opportunity to make a strong, collective statement about the importance of education beyond high school. We can provide both encouragement and financial support for local students. Please join us at this year's event as the board will be celebrating eclipsing the $1,000,000 mark in scholarships awarded.

Sponsorship opportunities are going fast! For more information, contact Zachary Stubbs at (515) 222-2380 or by email at zstubbs@westbankstrong.com.
