HEBRON, Ky. – Coach Mick Cronin welcomed members of the University of Cincinnati Tip-Off Club along with some former players and supporters of the men’s basketball program to the fifth annual Bearcats Classic on Aug. 26 at Tradition’s Golf Club.
The yearly fundraiser gave supporters the opportunity to participate in a round of golf alongside the Bearcats coach and players from the past. Those unable to participate on the course were encouraged to sponsor a hole or join the group at dinner and a social event that followed on Monday evening.
Funds raised at the event help offset expenses for travel and program enhancement projects.
“This event provides the chance to spend time with former players and coaches along with current staff and fellow Bearcats,” Cronin said. “There are a lot of people here that love UC basketball and it was great to see them and give them an update on this year’s team. We would not have the program we have today without their support and we’re very thankful for everyone that was here.”
The donation costs included $750 per person or $1,500 per team; hole sponsorships for $500 or dinner reservations for $250 per person.
UC fans are encouraged to join the Tip-Off Club which assists in funding targeted needs of the men’s basketball program. Contributors are provided active membership into UCATS, receiving priority points. Donations can be made on a monthly, quarterly, semi-annual or annual basis through the UCATS office. Membership levels range from $1,000 to $10,000. Those interested in joining should call the UCATS office at (513) 556-4884.
Traditions Golf Club also serves as the home course for the UC men’s and women’s golf programs.
