At the press conference on February 21st, Scott McNeal extended the current partnership with CMU, and agreed to five more years of Gus Macker on our campus. This not only means five more years of a unique learning experience for college students enrolled in the course, but also $50,000 to benefit CMU directly.
It was an amazing experience for our class to attend a press conference and hear inspiring words from both Scott, and Dick Parfitt. Dick Parfitt spoke of how honored he is to be a CMU alumnus, and how much it means to him that the proceeds of the tournament are donated to the Dick Parfitt Gymnasium in the Events Center.
After the press conference, many students headed to Hunters Ale House to prepare for the first ever Gus Macker Launch Party. At the launch party, guests enjoyed pizza and drink specials, along with a performance by The Cold City Cowboys. Guests were also encouraged to purchase raffle tickets for 20 different prize packages. The night had a great turnout, and we look forward to hearing exactly how much was raised by the Special Events Team!
