100% All In!

NCCC Athletics Department Kicks Off 100% All In Campaign

By News Archive

COVID-19 has been the toughest opponent to date for Niagara County Community College (NCCC) and its award-winning athletic department. The ongoing pandemic has forced NCCC to cancel the 18th annual Roy E. Sommer Memorial Scholarship Golf Scramble, which was scheduled for Monday, June 22 at the Niagara Frontier Country Club.  Although it is anticipated that the golf tournament will resume next summer, the NCCC Athletic Department is asking for your help in funding athletic scholarships for the upcoming academic year.

The 100% All In campaign is an opportunity to help scholarship-level programs continue to bring in student-athletes that the campus, community and supporters can be proud of and recognize.  Our championship-level men’s and women’s basketball programs have been nationally ranked, regionally recognized and among the best at helping student-athletes move on to four-year schools.

For a donation of $100, you will be mailed a complimentary Thunderwolves polo and you will help fulfill the dreams of future athletes at NCCC.  For more information and to make your donation online, visit the website: http://www.niagaracc.suny.edu/alumni/allin/
