26th Annual Pig Roast Huge Success!
The Boone County Chapter of WVU Alumni and Friends hosted is 26th Annual Golf Outing and Pig Roast on Saturyday, July 27, at the Riverview Country Club in Madison. This year's event hosted hundreds of guests, including returning and new Boone County WVU students.
The annual event also hosted several special guests from Morgantown, including Athletic Director Oliver Luck, Men's Basketball Coach Bob Huggins, WVU Alumni President and CEO Steve Douglas and COO Kevin Berry. No WVU event is complete without the famous Mountaineer mascot, Johnathan Kimble who pleased the crowd with cheers and a few rounds from his musket.
During the dinner, guests were entertained with West Virginia's own Taylor Made
(www.taylormadecountry.com) which was generously sponsored by Little General Convenience Stores (http://www.lgstores.com/). Following the dinner, honorary auctioneer and West Virginia's Agricultural Commissioner Walt Helmick kicked off the live auction. Items such as fishing trips, custom-made Louiseville Slugger baseball bats and airline tickets were just a few items up for bid.
The Golf Outing and Pig Roast is the chapter's largest fund raising event. Money
collected from the event is earmarked for scholarships. Any Boone County student
who applies for a scholarship is eligible to receive financial help to attend
schools under the WVU umbrella. The chapter also provides book gift certificates
to Boone County students attending WVU & WVU Tech. This year, the chapter provided more than $30,000 in scholarship to deserving Boone County students. Since the chapter's inception, more than 200 scholarships have been awarded.
Each winter, the chapter hosts a pizza party for high school seniors who are
considering, or planning on attending WVU. WVU officials and current Boone
County WVU Students also attend to answer any questions prospective students
and parents may have about the University.
