Each summer Denali Education Center hosts fundraisers in the Charles Sheldon Center and the surrounding community. Our main fundraising events – the “Fun”-Raising Auction and the Healy Tundra Challenge Golf Tournament – work to bring our community together to celebrate our differences and have a blast in the process. In addition to being fun, our fundraisers support the programs and mission of Denali Education Center.
For over 20 years the Auction has been a cornerstone event for the Denali community. Each summer our annual auction comes together to celebrate the friends, fun, and people that make up our community. All proceeds from the auction are used benefit our programs, special campus projects, and to further the mission of Denali Education Center.
The 14th Annual Healy Tundra Challenge Golf Tournament will be held Saturday, July 13th! Tee time is at 10am and teams should arrive by 9:15am for registration. It will be a day of merriment, remembrance, and golfing. Proceeds from this tournament go to the Scott Menke Memorial Fund to support Denali Education Center youth programs. Visit the tournament page for last year’s sponsors and winners!
Hosted by Black Diamond Golf Course, 18 teams of four golfers play a 9-hole scramble and compete for amazing prizes. Funds are raised through team participation, individual, and business sponsorship of the event.
