Wrap up: 1st Annual Warrior Day Golf Outing a huge success

It's official, the 1st Annual Warrior Day Golf Outing was a huge success.

Earlier this week Bo Ellis, his family, and the board members of The Nicole Ellis Foundation welcomed more than 110 participants, including 30 former Warrior basketball players, to The Bog and raised more than $37,000. That's right, $37,000 was raised to benefit the Nicole Ellis Foundation. Well done!

CrackedSidewalks was honored to be an official sponsor for the inaugural event. Please click here to see the full list of sponsors, board members and participants in this year's event.

Finally, we want to thank our intrepid field reporter, Jim McIlvaine. Jim, who in addition to his fine work with Camp Anokijig and the Marquette radio network, is also a freelance writer and photographer. Jim put those skills to work and sent along this terrific collection of photographs from the event -- as you can see, the Marquette basketball family turned out to support Bo and his family.

BTW, doesn't Earl Tatum look great (light blue shirt)! Remarkable, looks like a strong recovery for Earl.

Great shots, Jim, thanks. But wait, we're not done --
