Updates from the Chiefs Club: September 3, 2019

As of today, our Catawba Chiefs Club membership is at 388 which includes 85 new members.

Here we go again: Catawba Chiefs Club 2019-2020! For the past two years, OUR Chiefs Club membership has been over 500 members. This year, our goal is to have over 750 Chiefs Club members. We need the support from our past Chiefs Club members, as well as our former student-athletes. 

We also have a Chiefs Club Challenge from our Catawba Board of Trustees Chair Bill Graham, who is also a former student-athlete at Catawba College. 

From Bill Graham: In an effort to support and help the Chief's Club grow, I will contribute $100 (unrestricted) for every new Chief's Club member added from now until September 10th, 2019 in order to get to 600 members. After the 600 number has been reached, I will contribute $200 to the Chief's Club for every new member thereafter and $300 for each member over the 750 membership number. This offer expires October 1st, 2019. A new member is defined as anyone that has not been a Chiefs Club member for at least one year.

Our Chiefs Club membership is growing. Forward this email to anyone you think would be interested in helping support OUR Catawba Chiefs Club. 

Over 525 current Catawba student-athletes, 23 varsity teams, two JV teams, 117 athletic scholarships, a weekly Chiefs Club newsletter, and your gift to the Catawba Chiefs Club is tax-deductible. The funds raised by the Catawba Chiefs Club help support the 117 athletic scholarships that Catawba College offers.

1000th Football Game: This year, when Catawba Football hosts Lenoir-Rhyne, it will be the 1000th football game for Catawba College.

We will be selling special 1000th game t-shirts sponsored by Davis & Davis Attorneys at Law starting at the 1st home game up until our 1000th game with Lenoir-Rhyne on Saturday, November 16, 2019. You can purchase your Catawba 1000th football game t-shirt at the Chiefs Club membership tent or at the pregame hospitality in the gym lobby for current Chiefs Club members. Shirts are $20.
