Save the Date: 1st Annual Warrior Day Golf Outing

This summer Marquette great Bo Ellis will host an important golf outing to honor his late daughter, Nikki -- and we wanted to post early details on the event.

The 1st Annual Warrior Day Golf Outing will be held on Monday, July 28th at The Bog in Saukville, Wisconsin. Proceeds from the event will benefit the newly created Nicole "Nikki" Ellis Foundation. Nikki Ellis, a Marquette graduate like her father, was just 24 years old when she passed away after a brief illness.

This is an event that Marquette hoops fans can't afford to miss. Former Marquette stars are turning out in droves to support Bo and the new foundation -- here's a list of former players already committed to play in this remarkable event:

  • Jim Boylan
  • Ron Curry
  • Dave Deisman
  • Travis Diener
  • Jerry Homan
  • Robb Logterman
  • Maurice Lucas
  • Jim McIlvaine
  • Tony Smith
  • George Thompson
  • Marcus Washington
  • Jerome Whitehead
The format is built for the fan --- there will be one former player in each of the 36 foursomes. The day of golf will include dinner, pictures, a silent auction and additional programming.

For now, mark your calendars for July 28. We'll provide registration and additional information on the 1st Annual Warrior Day Golf Outing to support the Nicole "Nikki" Ellis Foundation soon.
