Insurance and risk management program to host Octoberfest Golf Outing

August 25, 2010

The Scott College of Business' insurance and risk management program at Indiana State University will host more than 100 community supporters and industry executives in insurance and financial services for the 13th annual Octoberfest Golf Outing Sept. 24 at the Country Club of Terre Haute.

"This event is our largest fundraiser and networking event of the year and allows students in the program to network with executives they might not otherwise have an opportunity to meet," said Maria Greninger, director of external relations for the Scott College of Business and organizer of the event. "It also gives our industry partners a chance to become more familiar with our top students."

The golf outing, which benefits the insurance and risk management program and the Gamma Iota Sigma fraternity, raised more than $24,000 last year. These dollars went to support the preparation of students for national industry exams, travel to corporate tours and conferences, and attendance at local and regional industry events.

Registration and range time begins at 10 a.m., followed by lunch and golf at 12 noon. A reception, dinner and skill and raffle prizes will be awarded following golf at 5 p.m. Individual registration is $225, which includes green fees, cart rental, lunch, dinner, beverages and hole contests. Foursomes may register for $750. Corporate sponsorships, which include a foursome and hole sponsorship, are $850. Checks for sponsorship and registration are to be made payable to the ISU Insurance and Risk Management Program.
