Edison Hosts Charger 400 Club Event To Support Athletics

The Edison Community College Foundation and Athletics Department will partner to host the sixth annual Charger 400 Club event on Thursday, March 19, at 6 p.m. in the Robinson Theater 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.

“This will be my first year participating in the Charger 400 and I’m beyond excited,” said Nate Cole, Director of Athletics and Student Life. “If you like tailgating, you will enjoy this event! There will be plenty of great food, good company, and a chance to win twelve grand–all while helping our student-athletes.”

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 NFL tickets, sports memorabilia, gift cards, and more.

“Edison is fortunate to have such a high–caliber pool of athletes to draw from in the area,” added Cole. “This event is important because it helps support these athletes by alleviating costs that they may otherwise have to pay. They can become part of an athletic team and take classes without worrying about the financial burdens typically associated with college.”

Funds raised by the event assist Edison in providing the best experience possible for student-athletes and have previously assisted the teams in post-season travel, uniform expenses, and equipment upgrades.

Edison’s teams compete in the Ohio Community College Athletic Conference and are Division II members of the National Junior College Athletic Association. In addition to playing for Edison, numerous athletes have been able to take their skills to the next level as they move on to play at four-year institutions.
