But wait...there's more!
To raise money for our chapter scholarship fund we will be selling t-shirts for $15. The shirts will be gray and will have "Northwest Bearcats" with the paw logo on the chest pocket area and the sleeve will say "Central Iowa Alumni Chapter" also with a paw. The design is simple and will allow for many years of wear! We currently have 50 shirts in both regular and ladies styles on order.
We will have these shirts for sale at the watch party and all proceeds go to our scholarship fund! If you are unable to attend the watch party or are unable to secure a shirt of your size we will be putting in another order and can place yours at that time as well. Email email@example.com with questions!
Please show your support for your local alumni chapter and for future Bearcats by wearing these shirts with pride!
