2020 Chieftain Golf Outing Canceled
The current COVID-19 health crisis and uncertainty of the virus remains a challenging time for our entire community, our schools, and our businesses.
After considerable thought and discussion, the Dowagiac Chieftain Golf Committee has reluctantly made the difficult decision to cancel the 17th Annual Chieftain Golf Outing this year. The decision was based on the understanding that above all else we need to keep all our families, friends, students, volunteers and golfers safe during this pandemic.
The Committee members appreciate the last 16 years of incredible support of this event for the Dowagiac Union Schools Foundation and the Dowagiac Athletic Boosters. The cancellation of this fundraiser will be a huge financial setback for the upcoming school year for these organizations and will impact all students and athletes of Dowagiac Union Schools in grades K-12.
This spring we will be awarding $7500 in scholarships to 15 member of the DUHS Graduating Class of 2020. These scholarships are the direct result of the community support at the Chieftain Golf Outing last year.
We understand the financial strain businesses and our past supporters are under during this crisis. However, we are hopeful that all our friends who have the ability will do what they can financially to help these two organizations.
We sincerely thank you for your understanding and we look forward to another successful Chieftain Golf Outing in June 2021.
Stay safe. Be smart.
The Dowagiac Chieftain Golf Committee
