Annual J-School Golf Scramble fundraiser returns

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – Marshall University’s W. Page Pitt School of Journalism and Mass Communications will host its third annual “J-School Golf Scramble” fundraiser at the Twin Silos Golf Course in Lavalette on Friday, April 26.

Janet Dooley, the school’s interim dean, said she is looking forward to another successful golf scramble.

“It's gratifying to see the students engaged in directing and organizing an event that will benefit their school and that puts their classroom skills to work in a real-world project,” Dooley said.

Participants will have an opportunity to win several prizes, including West Virginia Golf Association VIP cards, tickets for the Greenbrier Classic, a round for four on The Snead Golf Course at the Greenbrier Sporting Club and a round for four at Stonewall Resort.
Registration for the nine-hole tournament is $200 for teams of four and $50 for individuals. Students may register a team of four for $160 or individually for $40 with a valid student ID card. Registration will begin at 8 a.m. Friday on the day of the event, followed by the tee-off at 9 a.m.

A picnic-style lunch and beverages on the course will be provided.

The deadline for early registration is April 15. Registration is available at
