Final Push for the Catamount Club's 2011 Fiscal Year

June 24, 2011

Cullowhee, N.C. - With the end of the fiscal year 2011 rapidly approaching on June 30, the Catamount Club and Western Carolina athletics continue to need the support of each of its fans and supporters to reach the goal of raising $500,000 towards the Catamount Athletic Scholarship Fund. Contributions made to The Catamount Club will directly impact scholarships that support each of WCU's 16 intercollegiate sports.

The closing days before the end of the financial calendar are critical as the Catamount Club strives to reach its goal of 1,000 members and $500,000 to the Catamount Scholarship Fund. The organization has currently received over $360,000 to date towards the Catamount Scholarship Fund with membership renewals arriving daily.

"The Catamount Club has experienced tremendous success over the past year despite the economic hardships being felt nationwide. That success is a direct result of the loyalty, dedication and the hard work of our membership, of whom we are extremely grateful," said Club Director - and former WCU student-athlete - Gorham Bradley. "We are encouraging all of our members to renew their membership by June 30, 2011 in order to provide increased scholarship support for the next athletic year."

In addition to money raised through memberships, the Catamount Club has found great success in the Catamount Golf Tour events. The next tournament is scheduled for July 20 at the Ridges Golf Club in Hayesville, N.C., with the unofficial kickoff for the 2011-12 athletic season - the Western Open - slated for August 3 at the Waynesville Inn, Golf Resort and Spa in Waynesville, N.C.

By enrolling at the Coaches Club Level, ($1,850) it ensures the donor a designated tailgate spot in the stadium parking lot next to E. J. Whitmire Stadium / Bob Waters Field. The Tailgate Parking Selection Event will take place on August 13 in conjunction with preseason Catamount Football practice.
