Swing for Education Tournament puts another one in the books
MCN Scholarship Foundation raise $23k through sponsorship
EUFAULA, Oklahoma — The Muscogee (Creek) Nation Scholarship Foundation held its annual benefit golf tournament Sept. 13 at the Fountainhead Creek Golf Course.
Teams of sponsors gathered to play a round in an effort to support Muscogee (Creek) college students financially while attending post-secondary institutions.
MCN Scholarship Foundation was able to collect $23,050 in sponsorships with the biggest donors including MCN casinos, Chickasaw Nation, Video Gaming Technologies, Muscogee Nation Business Enterprise and Arrowhead Precast LLC.
Muscogee (Creek) citizen and sponsor Mark Carr discussed the value of backing fellow citizens seeking to further their education through sponsorship.
“We could do this with several organizations that are certainly deserving but as a [Muscogee (Creek)] citizen my heart goes to them,” Carr said.
The benefit golf tournament is not the only occasion for those interested in donating to the MCN Scholarship Foundation, the department offers different levels that include one-time, ongoing or special donations.
