Skagit Valley College and SVC Foundation to host the 18 th Annual Athletic Fundraising Event on Wednesday, October 28

(MOUNT VERNON)- Skagit Valley College and SVC Foundation has decided to move he 18th Annual SVC Athletic Fundraising Event to (NEW DATE) Wednesday, October 28 at 5 p.m., so they don't compete with the presidential debate.

The event is going virtual this year with a fun-filled evening that supports SVC student-athletes. The event will proudly feature President Tom Keegan, SVC coaches, student-athletes, SVC alum and emcee Mike Yeoman, with keynote speaker, retired Seattle Seahawks Assistant Coach Pat Ruel!

Although SVC’s Athletic programs will look a little different this fall, SVC student-athletes are taking classes online while they participate in adjusted practice schedules, as they prepare for their seasons to resume in winter or spring.

“Many students begin their college experience with participation in athletics,” said Brad Tuininga, SVC Foundation Executive Director. “Our Athletic Fundraising event will raise important scholarships that will help our student-athletes achieve their educational dreams and goals.”

While the event this year will look different than their usual fall auction, they are thrilled to bring you an event that you can participate in from the comfort of your own couch! Make some popcorn, grab a beverage, and join us to show your support for your Skagit Valley College Cardinal athletes!
