Golf Classic 2020 LogoBellingham, Wash. – Whatcom Community College will host its first-ever golf tournament fundraiser on May 4, 2020 at the Sudden Valley Golf and Country Club. All proceeds raised at the Orca Golf Classic will support WCC student-athletes and the College’s seven athletic programs.

“If it wasn’t for the soccer program, I would have not attended Whatcom Community College or college in general,” said Musab Bwana, a member of the men’s soccer team. “Whatcom has given me an opportunity to further my education and follow my dream.”

The event includes a golf tournament, dinner, silent and live auctions, dessert dash, awards ceremony, and a keynote speaker. Entry fee is $600 per team of four players or $150 per individual. “Hole Sponsorships” are available for $250 and include entry to the full dinner program. Tickets for the dinner and auction only are $40. If companies or individuals would like to donate items for the silent or live auctions, or if there are any questions regarding the event, please contact Danny Day, director for athletics and recreation, at dday@whatcom.edu or 360.383.3112.

Nineteen student-athletes achieved a perfect 4.0 GPA (grade point average) in fall quarter, while 54 student-athletes earned at least a 3.0 GPA. The Orcas recently added men’s and women’s cross country teams, bringing WCC’s total athletic offerings to seven teams, including men’s and women’s basketball; men’s and women’s soccer; and women’s volleyball.
