Golden Hawk alumni & friends of the football program,
The Laurier Football Dinner on Friday evening at Bingemans was a success. Thank you to everyone involved in the planning and setup. A special thanks to Andy Baechler who emceed and to Mark Lee & Justin Dunk for being a part of our Yates Cup Recap round-table.
The event raised over $40,000 for our football program. Here is a great article on the event including a video recap: https://laurierfootball.com/2017/05/03/golden-hawks-football-dinner-raises-40000/
At the dinner, we were thrilled to unveil a new fundraising initiative called the “Legacy Fund”. The Legacy Fund will allow us to have sustained success and ensure that our Golden Hawk football program is year after year an elite, upper echelon team in the country.
