Insurance and risk management students to host benefit golf scramble

September 17 2007

Students in Indiana State University’s insurance and risk management program will host the 10th annual Octoberfest Golf Scramble October 4 at the Country Club of Terre Haute.

The golf scramble is the largest fund-raiser for Gamma Iota Sigma, the international risk management, insurance and actuarial science collegiate fraternity. Proceeds will support several worthwhile, student-centered initiatives, such as attendance at local and regional industry events and travel to corporate tours.

"This event allows more than 100 insurance and risk management professionals the opportunity to network with the outstanding students in the IRM program, and other industry professionals," said Jon Lough, junior insurance and risk management major and industry relations manager for the golf scramble.

Gamma Iota Sigma will use a portion of the proceeds to send 17 students to Washington, D.C. for the International Management Conference, according to Gerald Smith, president-elect of the fraternity’s ISU chapter.

Registration for the golf outing includes green fees, cart lunch, dinner, beverages, hole contests and one sleeve of balls. Cost is $275 per person, or $900 per team. The day will begin at 10 a.m. with registration and driving range time, followed by lunch and a shotgun start at noon. Dinner and an awards ceremony will take place following the outing at 5 p.m.

"Our annual outing is a wonderful opportunity for our students and industry supporters to come together for a good cause," said Mary Ann Boose, professor and coordinator of the insurance and risk management program at Indiana State University. "Without our benefactors, our students could not get all of the hands-on experiences and professional development and career networking opportunities available to them through our program."

Golf outing sponsorship and registration checks may be made payable to the ISU Insurance and Risk Management Program.
