Edison Hosts Charger 400 Club Event To Support Athletics

The Edison Community College Athletics Department will host its fifth annual Charger 400 Club event on Thursday, March 20, at 6 p.m. in the gymnasium at the Piqua campus. The event is held to help raise funds for the College’s athletic programs.

A reverse raffle will highlight the evening’s events, with one lucky winner walking away with a $12,000 prize. Other cash drawings will be held throughout the night and ticket holders are not required to be present to win.

Tickets are $100 per couple and include a buffet, beverages, entertainment and a chance to win. A silent auction will also be held featuring items such as Cincinnati Reds tickets, sports memorabilia, gift cards, and more.

“The Charger 400 event has been very popular in past years and on March 20th we’re expecting another packed gymnasium,” said Amber Selhorst, Edison’s Assistant Athletic Director. “Tickets have been selling well so far and with only 400 available they tend to go quickly.”

Providing the athletic department with just under $20,000 annually, funds raised will help provide the opportunity for Charger basketball and volleyball teams to travel and participate in post-season tournaments, while also funding uniform and meal expenses for players and coaches.

Edison’s athletic program provides a unique opportunity to athletes who may have found difficulty participating at larger schools due to financial reasons and family commitments. Numerous Edison athletes have been able to translate their successes as a Charger into opportunities to move on and play for four-year institutions.

Edison’s teams compete in the Ohio Community College Athletic Conference and are members of the National Junior College Athletic Association Division II.
