DAC President Mike Carey said the club is hoping to sell 500 tickets tio its 21st annual drawdown, the club’s biggest fundraiser of the year. Donors can designate which sport their ticket purchase will benefit.
“Dolphin Nation is the DAC battle cry as we support young men and women competing in 26 teams at the high school and middle school levels,’’ Carey said. “ The club helps pay for sports equipment, uniforms, nutrition and other needs. ‘’
Founded in 1999, DAC also awards $1,000 scholarships to ten graduating seniors at Gulf Shores High School who have demonstrated excellence in athletics, leadership and community service.
The Dolphin Athletic Club (DAC) works in partnership with Gulf Shores City Schools to help fund athletic programs, and meet the needs of student-athletes.
“The Hangout has proudly supported the local schools in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach for over a decade, and we will continue to do so in the years to come,” said Derek Rowan, marketing manager at the Hangout. Other sponsors include Southern Chevrolet and Culver’s Restaurant.
