Denali Education Center hosts two main fundraisers each year as well as smaller events in the Charles Sheldon Center and the surrounding community. Besides being fun, our fundraising events support the programs and mission of Denali Education Center.
For over 20 years the DEC Auction has been a cornerstone event for the Denali community celebrating friends, fun, and fundraising! All funds benefit our programs, special campus projects (including bathrooms for the Sheldon Center!), and will be used with an eye toward the future of the Denali Education Center.
The 12th Annual Healy Tundra Challenge Golf Tournament was held on Saturday, July 9th, and raised over $12,300 for the Scott Menke Memorial Fund and the youth programs of Denali Education Center.
Hosted by Black Diamond Golf Course, 18 teams of four golfers play a 9-hole scramble and compete for their share of amazing prizes. Funds are raised through team participation and individual and business sponsorship of the event.
THANK YOU to all the local sponsors, donors, and team players that contribute to the success of the Healy Tundra Challenge! Visit our Flickr album to see photos from the 2016 tournament.
