NIC American Indian students to hold golf scramble for scholarships

Members of the North Idaho College American Indian Student Alliance (AISA) are hosting a golf scramble at Circling Raven Golf Club near Worley to raise money for the Che’nshish scholarship.

The Che’nshish 2011 Scholarship Scramble will begin with a shotgun start at 10 a.m. Friday, Sept. 30. The silent auction begins at noon and ends at 5 p.m. Silent auction and raffle items include hotel packages at the Coeur d’Alene Casino, the Northern Quest Casino, the Kootenai Tribal Bingo and Casino and the Wildhorse Resort Casino in Pendleton, Ore. Other donations include an original painting from Andrew Morrison, golf passes, Spokane Chiefs hockey tickets and Spokane Indians baseball tickets and crafts.

Cost is $100 per person and includes a golf cart, driving range access, luncheon, silent auction and raffle during lunch. The entry deadline is Friday, Sept. 23. To register, contact the Circling Raven Pro Shop at 1-800-523-2464, Ext. 7259. Non-golfers are invited to attend the luncheon and no-host bar at 3 p.m. for $20. Luncheon tickets must be purchased in advance by contacting Evanlene Melting Tallow at (208) 769-3365.

This is the second year AISA is hosting the golf scramble. Proceeds will help match a three-year American Indian Education Foundation grant. To make a donation to the Che’nshish Scholarship, contact the NIC Foundation at (208) 769-5978.
