At this time Laurier Golden Hawk Athletics would like to announce a fundraising initiative that is being launched by the 5th Quarter Club and the Wilfrid Laurier University Golden Hawk Football program. The First Annual “Friends of Golden Hawk Football Reception and Dinner” will take place on April 26, 2000 at the Four Points Sheraton Hotel in Kitchener, Ontario. Four Points Sheraton and Rogers Cable Television will be co-sponsors for the event. Our keynote speaker for the evening will be Michael A. Wadsworth, Director of Athletics at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana.
The 5th Quarter Club is operated under the umbrella of the Golden Hawk Club, the fundraising organization for Athletics at Wilfrid Laurier University. The goal of the 5th Quarter Club is to raise funds for the football program and to cultivate friendships surrounding the great tradition and success of one of the top programs in Canada. Golden Hawk Football has enjoyed excellent support in the past and the proceeds from this event will take the program to a new level. “We are very excited to have Mike Wadsworth involved in our first annual dinner,” said PETER BAXTER
, Director of Athletics at Wilfrid Laurier University. “Mike has created a top-rated student-athlete centered program at Notre Dame, a model that we are following at Laurier!”
A press conference will be held at 1:00pm on April 26, 2000 to welcome Mr. Wadsworth and allow the media to interview and ask questions. (Four Points Sheraton)
