You are invited to play in the 2013 “Wally Open” Saturday, June 22 at Moorhead’s Village Green Golf Course. In its third year, this casual event is a fundraiser for a scholarship fund at Minnesota State University Moorhead.

The Dave Wallace Scholarship was created in honor of Dave Wallace, a well-known local artist who graduated from MSUM, spent part of his career as a full-time potter, and for the last 20 years served as the university’s art director.

The scholarship fund will allow a $500 scholarship to be awarded each year to an MSUM ceramics student. The goal is to raise $10,000 for a permanent endowment.

The entry fee for the “Wally Open” is $25 (tax-deductible) plus green fees and cart fees (optional). Recruit your favorite playing partners and enter as a foursome or you can enter individually and be paired with others. There are hole prizes and an abundance of door prizes, including a ceramic piece created by Dave Wallace.

Contact John Tandberg at 218.233.1128 or to register.

If you are not a golfer, please consider making a contribution at this time to the scholarship fund in honor of Dave Wallace. You can sponsor your own virtual foursome for only $100.
