Promoting Educational Opportunities for Alaska Native Youth
Dumfries, Virginia – UIC Government Services (UICGS) is hosting its sixth annual charity golf tournament September 8, 2016, which will benefit the UIC Foundation. The Tournament will take place at the Potomac Shores Golf Club.  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 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.

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 Iñupiat shareholders.
