Sixth Man Club fundraising activities are going extremely well. Through a variety of private donations; commitments by the University of Calgary to increase funding for the program and to provide matching dollars for scholarships; approximately $120,000 has already been raise/committed for the 2016/2017 season.
A massive shout out to Alum Geoff Thompson who's been "The Man" leading the charge. He developed a strategic fundraising plan last summer and has been busy executing it. He has collaborated closely with Dan Vanhooren to build up a strong relationship with the Development group and with new administrators at the University.
University Stepping up with $50,000 of Matching Funds
Alum Ian Minnifee, was formerly a member of the U of C Senate for two terms which connected him with many senior leaders at the U of C. He has brokered some great connections and meetings with the U of C brass which has resulted in an offer to match $50,000 of donations we raise that will go toward the Men's Basketball program.
The Sixth Man Club is creating a plan to raise these funds in conjunction with the 50th Anniversary celebration this Fall. More details to follow.
Mark Your Calendars - November 4th & 5th
The U of C is celebrating it's 50th Anniversary in the Fall, which also means next season represents the 50th year a men's basketball team was fielded by the University. There will be special recognition for players from the 60's during the games that weekend.
Wayne Thomas has been busy spearheading a plethora of activities for all Alumni and program supporters. More to come in the near future on this as well. Stay tuned.
