The NorCal chapter of The Hutchinson Bell exceeded the $1,000 fundraising goal at their Flag Football Extravaganza event on Saturday, March 5, 2016! The chapter raised $2,565 in just one day, including a $1,000 donor match.

Approximately 100 alumni and friends of Florida College attended the event, which included a presentation from President Payne highlighting the memories and experiences of Florida College alumni from different generations, a complimentary lunch, a flag football tournament, and other family-friendly games and activities. The event also generated 14 new memberships in the NorCal chapter of The Hutchinson Bell.

Adam Olson, Florida College’s director of alumni relations and the president of The Hutchinson Bell, had the opportunity to attend the fundraising event and was thrilled with the chapter’s efforts.

“This was a fantastic event,” Olson said. “We were especially excited to see all the young families, some of whom drove over three hours to be with us! Our NorCal chapter of The Bell is doing great work to support the mission of Florida College and the young people in the area.”

Florida College would like to thank Tim Castleberry, Elisa McCutchen, Erin Castleberry, Melissa Eckert and the other NorCal volunteers for organizing the Flag Football Extravaganza and continuing to engage alumni and friends of Florida College in the northern California area.
