Promoting Educational Opportunities for Alaska Native Youth

Anchorage, Alaska – Ukpeaġvik Iñupiat Corporation Foundation (UIC Foundation) is hosting its third annual charity golf tournament August 10, 2016 at the Anchorage Golf Course.  In addition to the charity golf tournament, the event will include a breakfast, lunch buffet, raffle and a silent auction of donated items including Alaska Native Art.

Proceeds from this event will benefit the UIC Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides scholarship funding to qualified Alaska Iñupiat Native students. The Foundation has distributed over $400,000 in scholarships over the past three years to qualified recipients attending college or vocational school.  The Foundation provides financial assistance with items such as tuition, fees, books and other higher education related expenses. You can learn more about the Foundation at, uic-foundation.com.

The success of this event is credited largely to its sponsors, who lend their names and financial support. By participating as a sponsor, organizations benefit from extended exposure through promotional efforts directed toward the supporters of the UIC Foundation including a ‘Thank You’ ad in various media publications, as well as the UIC newsletter which is mailed to more than 2,900 UIC shareholders. Those interested in sponsoring this event can contact Carol Murphrey at (907) 677-5207 or by email at, Carol.Murphrey@UICAlaska.com.
