Full Details on 1st Annual Warrior Day Golf Outing

As we first reported several weeks ago, this summer Marquette great Bo Ellis will host the first annual golf outing to honor his late daughter, Nikki, a 2000 Marquette graduate.

The 1st Annual Warrior Day Golf Outing will be held on Monday, July 28th at The Bog in Saukville, Wisconsin. The golf outing in Nikki's memory will benefit the Nicole Ellis Foundation, a 501(C)3 corporation. All proceeds will benefit the American Liver Foundation, Marquette Men's and Women's non-revenue sports, and the proposed Hank Raymonds Educational Center.

Supporters are asked to provide a $350 donation which includes 18 holes of golf with a former Marquette Warrior basketball player and a host of other perks. If you can't make the golf outing, that's fine too -- $100 donations will be accepted for the dinner, which includes a silent auction and raffles.

The list of former MU greats participating in this event is remarkable, and includes (among many others):

Folks, it's time to jump in and join this great cause, and to support Bo and his family, who have been such a big part of the Marquette community for many, many years.
