Join The Chiefs Club Today

As of today, our Catawba Chiefs Club membership is at 622 which includes 215 new members, and our business listing promo has grown to 74 business listings.

Dear current Chiefs Club membership,
If each of our current Chiefs Club members could help us find a few more people willing to join and help support our Catawba Chiefs Club, we would reach our goal of 750 members.. Ask a friend who could come with you to our Catawba home games, ask a former Catawba classmate, ask a former teammate to join. What a good reason to help get back in touch with a few people who would join OUR Catawba Chiefs Club if you asked them to. Ask someone you know that owns a local business to consider joining. Our business listing is growing just like our Chiefs Club membership and those businesses are getting a lot of exposure each Monday with our growing Chiefs Club membership e-newsletter.

We also need the support from our former Catawba student-athletes to meet this goal and our overall goal to have over 750 member in OUR Catawba Chiefs Club. If you are a former Catawba student-athlete, ask some of your teammates to join. Help give back to support the same athletic scholarships they received while playing on a team at Catawba.

Memberships start as low as only $100. You gift is tax deductible, will also place you on our weekly Chiefs Club e-newsletter that goes out each Monday, and the funds we raise with our Catawba Chiefs Club goes back to help support our athletic teams. It would really help our efforts if you would forward this message to anyone you think would consider joining and helping us get one step closer to OUR goal of 750 members.
