Caleb Hanie, now the second-string quarterback with the Chicago Bears, thanked Ram Club members at the 2007 drive celebration
March 30, 2009
FORT COLLINS, Colo. -- Increasing private support through Colorado State University's annual Ram Club campaign is now more important than ever as the department strives to reach its goal of providing scholarship support for nearly 400 student-athletes.
About 2,000 Ram Club members made a financial contribution last year to the student-athlete scholarship fund. Director of Athletics Paul Kowalczyk and the department is working diligently to increase that number.
"Expanding our membership is critical to the long-term success of our program," said Kowalczyk. "It provides support for our student-athletes and provides them a continued opportunity to compete at the highest level."
The Ram Club is the scholarship fundraising arm of CSU athletics, and consists of alumni, friends and fans of CSU.
"Being a Ram Club member is an excellent way to get involved in CSU athletics," said Dan Johnston, annual fund director of the Ram Club. "Growing Ram Club membership will promote CSU's future success and ensure its ability to remain competitive in the MWC and across the nation."
The Ram Club will launch its annual membership drive on Wednesday, with more than 50 volunteers helping contact their family, friends, neighbors and co-workers. Many benefits will be available to those that wish to participate in the drive, including exclusive Ram Club gear and a private reception at both home football and basketball games.
"We are only as strong as our current members," said Johnston, "and I hope they enjoy and actively participate in the opportunity to help us grow our membership and abundance of Ram pride."
For more information on the Ram Club or how to become a volunteer, please call Johnston at 970/491-4666, or visit the organization's Web site at www.csuramclub.com.
