Letterwinners M Club Penn State Tailgate
Oct. 16, 2014
The Letterwinners M Club hosted its 3rd annual Fall Tailgate this past weekend before the football team battled Penn State under the lights to a 18-13 victory! Over 400 Letterwinners and their guests rallied on the fairways of the University of Michigan G.C. to reconnect and relive memories as a varsity student-athlete in Ann Arbor.
Proceeds from the event will support M Club initiatives, particular our Post-Graduate Scholarship fund. Together as Letterwinners, we are able to award scholarships to deserving Michigan Letterwinners in recognition of their outstanding academic achievement and potential for success in postgraduate study. This spring the M Club awarded scholarships totaling $20,000!
We also recognized two individuals for their outstanding service to University of Michigan athletics. Mr. Jim Keen (Wrestling, 1961-1963) was presented with the Club's Ufer Award and Dave Heleniak an Honorary M, both for their unwavering passion and dedication to Michigan. Be sure to check out the photo gallery for a look back at the festivities and fun had by all the Letterwinners, family and friends who attended!
We also need to extend our gratitude to our sponsors who helped make this event such a success - Stubb's BBQ, Jim Beam, O&W Distributing, Meijer, Buffalo Wild Wings, Absopure, Plante Moran and Big George's Home Appliance Mart. We could not have hosted this first-class event without everyone's support!
