The fourth annual Blueberry Classic was held on Friday, July 25 at the Northern Michigan University Golf Course and it was not your ordinary golf outing!

Funds raised at this event benefited students who encounter unexpected financial challenges, but it was also about having fun in a non-competitive event. Any type of golfer is welcome; the Blueberry Classic features 18 traditional and not-so-traditional holes. To get an idea, check out last year's information on the format, the fun activities and the event menu. The 2015 event promises to be similar with a few new twists!

The primary purpose of the Blueberry Classic is to raise scholarship funds for the NMU Student Flexible Aid Fund, a resource for students who experience unexpected financial challenges such as medical expenses, day care and car repairs - things not covered by traditional financial aid.

The event has become a welcomed addition to activities held as part of the annual downtown Marquette Blueberry Festival. It also raises awareness of how the NMU Golf Course, donated to the university in 2009, benefits students on multiple levels.
