18th Annual Morris Thompson Memorial Golf Classic Seeks Volunteers
The 18th annual Morris Thompson Memorial Golf Classic is right around the corner. This year’s event will take place June 21 – 22 at the Chena Bend Golf Course on Fort Wainwright military base outside Fairbanks.
The golf classic is an annual Doyon Foundation fundraising event benefiting the Morris Thompson memorial competitive scholarship fund. The event honors the memory of Doyon, Limited’s longest-serving president, Morris Thompson, who led Doyon from 1985 – 2000. Since the golf classic’s inception in 2000, the fund has awarded competitive scholarships totaling over $428,180 to Doyon shareholders and shareholder descendants pursuing higher education degrees full-time.
Volunteers for the event can expect to serve as spotters for golfers on Friday during the tournament, greeters that hand out gifts to players upon arrival, assistants in the skills tests, and helpers setting up and breaking down for the tournament and Calcutta/reception.
