Record-setting day for Spartans

19th annual Wireless Wave Golf Tournament raised nearly $700,000

It was a record-setting day as Trinity Western University held its 19th annual WirelessWave Golf Tournament.

It was held on June 6 at Coquitlam’s Westwood Plateau and featured NFL legends Terrell Davis, Eric Dickerson and Marshall Faulk as the celebrity guests.

The event raised $692,545 for student-athlete scholarships and scholarship endowments.

It was the fourth consecutive year the tournament broke the half million dollar mark and topped last year’s $660,000 raised.

“It has been an unbelievable team effort and a blessing to see this tournament grow over the last 19 years,” said Steve Scholz, TWU’s tournament advisor, thanking all of the tournament’s corporate sponsors and donors.

“It is a real privilege to be a part of something that directly impacts students’ lives and helps develop our leaders of tomorrow.”

The first time it was held, $30,000 was raised. And that total has now netted $3,720,000.

CTV’s Brian Williams was the evening’s master of ceremonies while Vancouver Whitecaps FC coach Martin Rennie and Cactus Club Cafe’s Rob Fennie were also special guests. Team 1040’s Bob Marjanovich broadcasted the station’s evening show live from Westwood Plateau that night.
