The UW–Platteville Department of Performing and Visual Arts faculty will host its third annual “Swinging for Scholarships” golf outing at the Platteville Golf and Country Club Friday, June 12.
Proceeds will provide music scholarships for incoming and current students who are pursuing a major or minor in music at UW–Platteville.
The event is open to everyone and will include golf, lunch, games, prizes and entertainment.
Cost of the event varies, depending on the number of holes played. More than 30 area businesses are helping to sponsor the event.
Entertainment will include Basin Street Boys, a group of UW–Platteville music students and alumni.
The event was organized by UW–Platteville’s Barry Ellis, professor of music and director of bands, and Allen Cordingley, professor of saxophone/jazz studies, as well as Monte Muller, a retired UW–Platteville alumnus who served as band director in the Wisconsin public school system for 36 years, most of them at Lancaster High School and Middle School.
Lunch and music will begin at 11:30 a.m. Check-in for golfing will be at 12:30 p.m. People who do not wish to golf but are interested in attending the luncheon are welcome to do so.

As UW–Platteville pursues its vision of being recognized as the leading student-focused university for its success in achieving excellence, creating opportunities and empowering each individual, it is guided by four strategic planning priorities. The “Swinging for Scholarships” golf outing aligns with three of the priorities, including fostering a community of achievement and respect, controlling UW–Platteville’s own destiny and enriching the Tri-State region.
