The men of Sigma Nu donated $4,900 worth of proceeds from their annual Snakebite Golf Tournament.
The Snakebite Golf Tournament was first hosted in 2000 and now is Sigma Nu’s biggest event of the year. Alumni, family and friends compete in a “best ball” style event at one of the nicest golf courses in Georgia. The event is traditionally held on the third Friday of October, the day before Dahlonega’s historic Gold Rush weekend. This is also a great opportunity for companies to advertise since each tee will showcase the company’s logo and information as well as in the event program, and on the event t-shirt. There is also a silent auction during the event. Proceeds are donated to No One Alone.
