More than 100 golfers from the U.S. and Canada will be competing in today's Indian Summer Classic at the Wilderness Fortune Bay Resort Casino.
This event has been raising money for the past six years for scholarships for Bois Forte students going to college or vocational training. The Indian Summer Classic raised $22,348 last year for the scholarship fund, and hopes to improve upon that this year.
“Thanks to our Title Sponsors, Native American Business Solutions and Fortune Bay Resort Casino and the strong early registration numbers, we are confident we are going to set a new record at this year’s event, said Wilderness Manager Tom Beaudry in a Wilderness press release.
“In our 7th year it’s hard not to feel lucky. We have many good friends and business partners all coming to this beautiful golf course to benefit kids who want to pursue a good education. All proceeds from the tournament benefit the kids and we invite everyone to come and join us on Monday for a very fun event at The Wilderness,” said Bois Forte Tribal Chair Kevin Leecy in the release.
Here's to hoping the classic breaks their own record.
