2nd annual golf tournament

On Friday, June 10, the DC Alumni Chapter hosted it's 2nd golf tournament with the Phoenix Club from Elon.  We held it at Westfields Golf Club, and it was just a fantastic day.  We had 65 golfers, including new head football coach Jason Swepson along with alumni, parents, and friends of the university.  It was an extremely hot day, but everyone had a great time on the course.  Athletic Director Dave Blank joined us for the post-round dinner.  Both he and Coach spoke about Elon and the athletics program.  The DC Chapter was able to make our second contribution to the Phoenix Club of $1,000. 

It is nice that we have people on our board who aren't golfers who can help with the behind the scenes day of logistics so that I'm able to play in the tournament! (Thanks Jaclyn!)  It was a great afternoon with Tommy and the Baltimore Chapter President and close friend of mine, Zack!

Nick and I are great friends, and have worked closely together both and college and with our chapter since then.  Creating this golf tournament last year to bring Elon to DC was one of our big dreams.  It's fantastic that we've been able to make that dream a successful reality, and it's been fun doing it together!  Here we're with Coach Swepson and Dave Blank.

They even wrote an article about the event for!

Go Phoenix!
