The Seward Seahawk’s Athletic Booster Club held it’s 16th annual golf tournament on July 20. Over 50 local golfers joined in the fundraising event at the Birch Ridge Golf Course in Soldotna. Together they raised over $4,000 for the Booster Club’s Endowment Fund which is dedicated to Seward High School sports programs. Anyone interested in donating to the fund may go online to the Alaska Community Foundation and click on their donation button.
